CAPCOG launches Blanco County Transportation and Economic Development Plan

Saturday, January 05, 2013

The Capital Area Council of Governments and partners have launched an initiative that for the first time will result in an integrated economic development strategy and official major thoroughfare plan for a rural county in the region.  

The upcoming Blanco County Transportation and Economic Development Plan, expected to cover the current period to 2035, will identify opportunities and solutions to help residents, businesses, local leadership and other stakeholders travel more efficiently and maximize the county's economic potential.

With the initiative proposed to include an advisory committee, public involvement and other key components, project team members from CAPCOG, the Texas Department of Transportation and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute got efforts under way with a Nov. 27 opening presentation to the Blanco County Commissioners’ Court.

A draft of the plan is expected to be completed by August 2013.
