Green, lean or in-between? Tell us on May 9 what you want to see in Round Rock landscapes
Have you worked on a development project in Round Rock? If so, you are familiar with the City’s landscape rules. Specifically, a certain amount of trees and shrubs are required on each new development site. The City also regulates the preservation of existing trees such as live oaks.
These rules have been in place for several years and need to be evaluated by the community. That’s where you, the developers, property owners, and consultants play an essential role. What are your thoughts? What is your impression of the landscaping at your office complex or shopping center?
Let us know by attending an interactive community workshop from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, May 9, in the Grand Meeting Room of the Allen R. Baca Center , 301 West Bagdad Ave., Building 2. Your thoughts and recommendations will be considered in any future rule changes. Now’s your time! For more information please call (512) 341-3321.
City updating Utility Design and Construction Standards
The City of Round Rock is updating Section 1 of its Utility Design and Construction Standards (DACS). The changes will reflect the changes in technology and internal City organization structure since the last update. The changes include, but are not limited to, the addition of specifications for the new Reuse water distribution system, and the addition of specifications for high-density polyethylene water and wastewater pipe. The updated Utility DACS (PDF) can be viewed on the City’s web site.
Please take the time to review Section 1 and email any comments or questions to David Freireich on or before May 13. Thanks in advance for your input. It will be taken into serious consideration.
