The Virtual Open House materials, including a video presentation, plan map, list of project recommendations, and a survey, are on the project webpage and available through February 7, 2021.

VIRTUAL OPEN HOUSE

Hays County hosted a Virtual Open House in the fall asking participants their opinions on current transportation challenges and opportunities.

“We are very appreciative of the public feedback, which played an important role in shaping the draft plan,” Precinct 2 Commissioner Mark Jones said. “The Hays County Transportation Plan will serve as a tool to help implement projects, preserve right-of-way, and collaborate with regional partners to guide the County’s future transportation landscape.”

The draft recommendations consider public input, stakeholder feedback, and technical analysis. Hays County is asking for community feedback before refining and presenting the final plan to the Commissioners Court for consideration.
