The City of Georgetown Planning Department will host an open house from 4:30-7 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Georgetown Public Library, 402 W. Eighth St. on the draft 2030 Comprehensive Plan update. The meeting is come-and-go, and presentations will be made on the hour.
During the meeting, residents and property owners will be able to learn more about what’s included in the plan and provide feedback to staff.
City staff presented the draft plan to City Council at its Jan. 28 meeting. The plan is expected to be adopted by the council this spring.
The 2030 Plan acts as a guide for the City’s growth and development decisions, and components of the plan include land use, Williams Drive Gateway Plan, gateways and image corridors, housing, and plan implementation.
The implementation plan will guide how the City uses the 2030 Plan during the next 10 years.
The implementation plan outlines three major strategies:
- Regulatory framework
- Decision framework
- Plans, programs and partnerships
Each strategy relates to the goals outlined in the 2030 Plan update, which were drafted using public input from community surveys including the first “On the Table,” in which more than 1,400 people participated in conversations to envision Georgetown’s future, and an accompanying online public survey taken by an additional 1,460 people.
The Planning Department also is offering office hours by request. To request a meeting or to have a planning staff member present at a community meeting, call (512) 930-3575 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
