General Plan 2020 Adopted

The General Plan 2020: Places and Spaces has been approved by the Planning & Zoning Commission and was adopted by the City Council on the first reading!  Big thanks to everyone who shared their concerns and priorities for the city in last summer’s workshops and focus groups (see earlier posts).  Also our heartfelt thanks to the city staff who contributed their time and expertise to help us produce recommendations that will guide the City’s development strategy over the next decade.

Several chapters of the General Plan 2020 address issues that were not part of earlier general plans, such as community quality, sustainability, support for older neighborhoods, historic preservation, and redevelopment quality.  These are issues that the City Council has identified in the Strategic Plan as critical to maintaining Round Rock as a city of choice, and which residents expressed concerns about in the General Plan Community Phone Survey and last summer’s workshops and focus groups (see previous posts). 

Draft #4 of the General Plan 2020 is given in the previous post; the final document will be posted in mid-August.  Copies can then be downloaded or ordered from local copy centers in the binding of your choice.
