Commissioners Conley and Whisenant Invite Public to Learn More about Vision for FM 150, Share Ideas at October 16 Meeting


Hays County Courthouse, San Marcos, TX – The public is invited to learn more about the process to develop a Roadway Character Plan for FM 150 from near Arroyo Ranch Road northwest through the Driftwood to RR 12 in Dripping Springs at an October 16 meeting. Hays County Commissioners Will Conley (Precinct 3) and Ray Whisenant (Precinct 4) are hosting the meeting to share information about the roadway and gather ideas from the public about what this important cross-county road needs to look like as changes are phased in to improve mobility and safety.

“This is a critical first step in identifying long-term solutions for FM 150,” said Precinct 4 Commissioner Ray Whisenant. “Our citizens are our best source for information about how the road is used, how it could be improved and how the roadway should look when it is completed. It is a long-term project that needs to stand the test of time and meet the needs of a growing Hays County.” Improvements are expected to be phased in over 10 to 20 years.

The meeting is the first of many and information will be shared on the process to develop a plan and public involvement for the project. The County is looking for volunteers to participate in a Citizens Advisory Panel for the project and can learn more about participating at the meeting.

The meeting is set for Thursday, October 16, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Thurman’s Mansion, 17900 FM 1826, Driftwood, Texas 78619. The presentation will begin at 6:30.
