The City of Round Rock will hold an Open House meeting on the Downtown Master Plan from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 29, and noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, July 30, in the Community Room at the McConico Building, 301 W. Bagdad Ave. That’s the same place where the Downtown Plan charrette was held in January.
Among the topics we plan to address at the Open House are: Mission, Vision and Scope; Roads/Parking; Zoning; Green Space/Parks, Historic Preservation, Economic Development/Tourism, Finance, and Catalytic Projects.
The meetings will be come and go; there will be no formal oral presentations. We will have displays with information, maps, etc., for you to look at and comment on. Staff will be on hand to answer questions. We’ll also have handouts for you to take home and review so if you want to comment after thinking about things for a couple of days that’s fine.
This will be the final formal public meeting prior to our update to the City Council at its retreat on Aug. 18-19. Our plan to is take your input, along with the City Council, Planning and Zoning Commission, and City staff, and forward that to our consultants following the retreat so they can incorporate it into a final draft document.
