Llano, CAPCOG seek public input on economic, transportation plan
Llano County and the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) are seeking public input about the Llano County Transportation and Economic Development Plan update through two public comment meetings. Each meeting will be from 9 to 11 a.m. with the first taking place Oct. 6, 2021 at the Llano Library, 102 E. Haynie Street in Llano, and the second will take place at the Kingsland Community Center, 3451 Rose Hill Drive in Kingsland, from 9 to 11 a.m., Oct. 26, 2021 .
“Residents should play a vital role in helping our Llano County communities grow in the direction they want, which is why we are inviting all residents to attend these meetings,” said Llano County Judge Ron Cunningham.
The Llano County Transportation and Economic Development Plan, originally developed in 2015, identifies economic development and transportation opportunities as they correlate with each other. The update is being developed in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation and reviews the plans for major corridors in the county. Before these public comment meetings, Llano County and CAPCOG have held two steering committee meetings lead by Cunningham and consisting of county and city elected officials and other community members.
CAPCOG has compiled demographic, economic and transportation data for the steering committee. The public input gathered from the October meeting will further determine how to update the plan’s priorities. CAPCOG anticipates the updated plan being completed later this year when the Llano County Commissioners Court could consider it for adoption.
