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.:
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.
