Hays County releases new development regulation drafts


The Hays County Commissioners Court recently released drafts of its proposed new development development regulations.

The  regulations have sparked controversy among residents because of a proposed minimum lot size of 6.5 acres for developments served by individual, private wells. The proposed lot size requirement would apply to wells located in the Priority Groundwater Management Area in the western part of the county and to wells created after the effective date of the new rules, which is likely to occur some time in the fall. The current regulations specify minimum lot sizes of two acres for advanced waste water systems and three acres for conventional systems.
