County Commissioners Invite Public to
Provide Input at FM 150 Character Plan Meeting
Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – Hays County Precinct 3 Commissioner Will Conley and Precinct 4 Commissioner Ray Whisenant are kicking off the next phase of the FM 150 Character Plan (from Arroyo Ranch Road to RM 12) with a public meeting on Tuesday, December 13. The Plan will include context- based concepts and identify near-, mid-, and long-term improvements that can be implemented incrementally over time.
Tuesday’s public meeting will include highlights of the Features and Themes Report and an overview of the current phase – Nature and Character Master Plan. There will also be an exercise to collect input on various roadway elements and aesthetic features to be considered as the concepts are further defined.
During the past two years the County has worked closely with the community to develop a Features and Themes Report. The next phase is to develop a Nature and Character Master Plan. This will be a more detailed plan of the corridor concepts. Ultimately, this plan will guide future planning and improvements on and near the FM 150 corridor.
“In the first phase we reached more than 450 people through three public meetings and more than 375 during 11 Citizens Advisory Panel meetings,” Precinct 3 Commissioner Will Conley said. “We gained valuable insight into what our communities felt would best benefit them. We’re eager for even more public participation in this next phase.”
“The community will have many opportunities to get involved during the development of the Nature and Character Master Plan,” Precinct 4 Commissioner Ray Whisenant said. “We have eight Citizens Advisory Panel meetings and three public meetings planned. Our project team will be out in the community and any group is welcome to request a presentation or meeting.”
