Llano County Seeks Public Opinion on Economic Development and Transportation Plan
Llano County residents can share their thoughts and comments on updates to the Llano County Transportation and Economic Development Plan at two public consultation meetings, including one from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Wednesday, October 6. at the Llano County Library, 102 E. Haynie St. in Llano.
The second meeting will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, October 26 at the Horseshoe Bay Property Owners Association building, 107 Twilight in Horseshoe Bay.
Llano County and the Capital Region Council of Governments host the meetings.
The plan, initially created in 2015, identifies opportunities for economic development and transportation as they correlate to each other, according to a press release. The Texas Department of Transportation is partnering with Llano County and CAPCOG on the update, which includes reviews of major travel corridors in the county.
“Residents should play a vital role in helping our Llano County communities grow in the direction they want, which is why we invite all residents to attend these meetings,” said the County Judge. Llano, Ron Cunningham.
Llano County and CAPCOG held two steering committee meetings ahead of the public consultation events. The steering committee was made up of elected county and city representatives as well as other members of the community.
County and CAPCOG officials will use the public feedback gathered from the October meetings to further determine how to update the plan and its priorities. CAPCOG officials believe the updated plan could be completed later this year when the Llano County Commissioners Court may consider it for adoption.
