Wiseman promoted to Director of Planning and Community Development
City Manager Steve Norwood announced Feb. 5 the promotion of Brad Wiseman to Director of Planning and Community Development. Wiseman had previously served Development Services Manager, and was interim director following the Dec. 7 resignation of Peter Wysocki, who left Round Rock for a similar position in Colorado Springs, Colo.
“Brad has been with the City for over five years and has been a huge contributor toward the development success of Round Rock,” Norwood said. “His knowledge of the city, dedication, and loyalty to Round Rock will serve this organization and community very well for years to come.” Proposed zoning changes for downtown
The Planning and Development Services Department invites you to a public open house on Tuesday, March 5, from 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Community Room of the McConico Building, 301 W. Bagdad Ave. The open house will present proposed zoning changes to downtown Round Rock.
In 2010, after much public input, City Council approved the Downtown Master Plan to set a vision for the redevelopment of downtown Round Rock. The Plan contained recommendations on the type of uses that should be allowed and how new construction should look. City staff, with the help of a Working Group consisting of downtown stakeholders, has been drafting zoning districts with new development and design standards to implement many of the Plan’s recommendations.
A general overview of the proposed zoning districts can be found on a special website set up for this process: roundrocktexas.gov/downtownzoning. Please submit feedback at any time using the comment box at the bottom of the page. All comments are forwarded directly to planners.
You may also contact planners Joelle Jordan (218-5422) or Bradley Dushkin (671-2728) by phone. Staff looks forward to seeing you March 5!
