The committee got off to a strong start in the new year with a kick-off meeting on Jan. 15 led by consultant Design Workshop. The committee's mission is to develop a new comprehensive plan for Lakeway that will be used for the next 15-20 years. Once approved by City Council, the plan will help guide city leaders in areas such as land use, transportation, infrastructure, parks and recreation, wildlife management, and historical preservation.

It also will be working closely with the city's standing committees and commissions that are already working on many of the areas covered by the plan. Input from these groups will be compiled and assimilated as the plan comes together. Transparency is a priority, and Lakeway citizens can expect to be consulted through surveys, poster sessions, and public events in the coming months.

The committee is working with Design Workshop to capture best practices from similar size cities that have completed comprehensive plans in recent years. The consultants will assist in the process and in drafting the final documents for Lakeway. The plan also will include a capital investment component to analyze the financial aspects of how to achieve the plan's goals.

Estimated completion of the final plan is winter 2019/2020.
