General Plan 2020: Places and Spaces

Next General Plan meeting June 30: Community Design & Preservation

The next General Plan 2020 meeting will be June 30, 2009 from 7-9 p.m. at the Baca Center.  Come early to see the preservation photo showcase “Places and Spaces That Matter” in the Baca Center lobby from 5-7.

This meting will address community design (corridors), housing & subdivisions, support for older neighborhoods and historic preservation.  This information will help to shape the General Plan 2020’s policy recommendations in these areas.

After a short presentation, participants will discuss the following questions in small groups:

  • How can we improve the appearance of transportation corridors in Round Rock?  Can you name some corridors in Round Rock that are good examples?
  • Where do you think commercial development belongs on a corridor?  What about residential, office, and multi-family development?
  • What are the things that you like and the things that you don’t like about existing subdivisions in Round Rock?  Please comment on both physical and community aspects.
  • What mix of housing types should be encouraged within a single subdivision and how should those types be arranged?  If there is commercial development within a residential subdivision, where is the best location for it?
  • What types of investments can the city make to improve deteriorating neighborhoods?
  • To what degree should the City participate in historic preservation efforts and why?
  • To what degree should the City regulate design for alterations to historic structures?

There will be a wrap-up meeting on July 15.  Whether or not you are able to attend these meetings, please share your thoughts with us here on the blog!
