County invites residents to comment on strategic plan

SUBMITTED REPORT

Hays County residents have until 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, to share their insights and opinions via an online survey designed to help Hays County develop a Strategic Policy Plan. More than 350 people have already submitted their surveys. A link to the survey is on the Hays County Web site at www.co.hays.tx.us.

The public is also invited to discuss their concerns and ideas from 6:30 to 9 p.m.:

  • November 10 at the Wimberley Community Center, 14068 RR 12, Wimberley
  • November 12 at Chapa Middle School, 3311 Dacy Lane, Kyle
  • November 17 at the San Marcos Police Department, 2300 S. IH-35, San Marcos
  • November 19 at Dripping Springs City Hall, 511 Mercer St., Dripping Springs

Quality of life in Hays County, water quality and quantity, delivery of health care and transportation services, and the need for parks and recreation are some of the key issues that will demand a coordinated, well-thought-out strategic plan as governmental agencies keep up with the rapid growth in Hays County. The plan will help myriad entities in the county work together to find solutions, avoid duplication of effort and provide a seamless delivery of services to residents.

The plan is being developed in conjunction with city leaders as well as with a variety of stakeholder groups, such as school districts, senior citizens, health care providers, conservationists, developers and business owners and individual citizens. Planners with Hays County, the Lower Colorado River Authority, Pedernales Electric Co-op and Bluebonnet Electric Co-op are assisting by organizing meetings and compiling results under the direction of a multi-faceted steering committee.
