City staff is currently working on what was originally thought to be an update, but will now be a complete revision to the Transportation DACS.
Internal discussions led to the conclusion that the Transportation section of the DACS needed a complete overhaul as opposed to an update that may have left many needed revisions left undone. The City has hired a transportation engineer, Chad Wood, P.E., since the last update. Chad will help lead the DACS revision. You can contact Chad at firstname.lastname@example.org or 218-6601.
The estimated target date for the completion of the Transportation DACS revision is January 2012.
The City of Round Rock is currently performing an internal review of the City’s Transportation Design and Construction Standards. This update will NOT be a rewriting of the document. It will be an effort to bring the document up to date, and clarify and remove conflicts where they exist.
A public comment period will be held open for 30 days from May 13, 2010, to June 12, 2010. During this time all comments and questions can be sent to the city either directly to the Development Services Office Manager, 2008 Enterprise, Round Rock, Texas, 78664, or here at the Making Places blog. Thank you for your participation in this important task.
We will announce the date and time for a public hearing to review the changes prior to their adoption via our Development News enewsletter as well as here on the blog.
