The 2030 Comprehensive Plan called for a UDC diagnostic review to implement several recommendations related to buffers, residential lot sizes, open space, density, connectivity, highway corridors, historic resources, transfers of development rights, and criteria for special districts such as municipal utility districts. The project Steering Committee includes representatives from City boards and commissions, City Council, and development professionals. The rewrite process will include stakeholder and public input, as well as regular check-ins with Council.

The 2017 Williams Drive Study concluded that traffic operations and safety in the corridor (from I-35 to Jim Hogg Road) are affected by a lack of access management, with corridor-wide center turn lanes and over 150 curb cuts. This project will increase the efficiency and safety of the corridor by consolidating the number of driveways, adding raised and planted medians with turn bays for protected movements, and installing safety lighting.

Community Involvement Opportunities
The City of Georgetown, in cooperation with the Texas Department of Transportation, began the process to work towards rehabilitating the Austin Avenue bridges crossing the North and South Forks of the San Gabriel River in 2016. The bridges were constructed in 1940 and deteriorated with time and increased traffic. The City is moving forward with developing construction plans for bridge rehabilitation and roadway improvements on the Austin Avenue Bridges over the San Gabriel River. This project is funded through the voter-approved Mobility Georgetown Bond 2021. The pedestrian bridges will be designed and constructed at a later date when additional funding is identified.
Timeline: Fall 2022 to mid-2023, with construction starting late 2023 through mid-2025
