County to host Jacob’s Well planning meeting



The second public meeting for the Jacob’s Well masterplan has been set for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 28 at the Wimberley Community Center, 14068 Ranch Road 12.

County officials and parks planning consultant RVi of Austin will present the draft of the site plan, which includes input from attendees at the initial public meeting held in January as well as from a stakeholder group appointed by the Hays County Commissioners Court and other groups interested in the future of the natural area.

“We are nearing completion of the master plan, which will allow the Jacob’s Well Natural Area to offer passive recreational opportunities as well as educational elements to help visitors understand the importance of water and other natural resources in our region,” said Jeff Hauff, the county’s grants administrator.

“The design team of RVi has coordinated this intensive planning effort and has considered the opportunities and constraints of the property along with ideas proposed from the public and various groups.”
