CAPCOG releases new land data

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

CAPCOG's Regional Services division, in partnership with the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) and the Texas Department of Transportation, has posted new GIS data showing the location of vacant parcels of at least 5 acres and partially developed larger parcels with developable vacant areas of more than 5 acres. The research covers Bastrop, Burnet, Caldwell, Hays, Travis and Williamson counties as of 2010.

The 2010 Land Fragmentation Inventory data - which updates the 2005 and 2008 reports for all the counties except Burnet, a new participant whose data starts with the latest survey - provides helpful information for local governments, developers and others interested in learning where development has occurred since the last study and where vacant land is currently potentially available. CAMPO, for example, uses such information for household growth forecasting and traffic modeling.  

For more information, call David Fowler, senior planner, at 512-916-6165, send an email to dfowler@capcog.org or download the data at CAPCOG's website. > Go
