We Had a Little Plan ...
The decision of the Hamilton Pool Road waterline waits or doesn't on the outcome of three regional planning efforts
Regional Water Quality Planning Project
This is the largest of the three efforts, and involves drawing up uniform development and environmental protection standards for all municipalities within the Barton Springs segment of the Edwards Aquifer. Planning leaders hope to submit a final proposal to government officials by February. Stakeholders have asked the LCRA to delay action until a regional plan is in place for the area. Hays Co. resident Terry Tull is the group's full-time executive director.
Southwest Travis Co. Growth Dialog Process
Formed this summer, this stakeholder panel is charged with soliciting input and making recommendations on development and its effects on roads in the unincorporated areas of southwest Travis County. County Commissioner Gerald Daugherty, who has largely been supportive of growth in the area, is leading the group. Joe Lessard, a planning consultant and former Austin city manager, is the group's facilitator.
Hamilton Pool Road Community Forum
The LCRA board called for the formation of this group when it first delayed its pipeline vote in May. Consultant Dr. Juli Fellows has been retained to lead the group.
