Georgetown City Council prioritized its city goals and confirmed the next action steps to achieve those goals during its regular meeting May 11.

The following are some of the goals and action steps prioritized by council:

  • improve mobility opportunities to include accessibility, parking, pedestrian access and general movement through downtown by completing a parking study to include a multifaceted plan;

  • identify and prioritize high-priority growth areas for investment by working with developers to create shovel-ready sites;

  • review agenda format and items with an eye toward streaming by posting one agenda for workshops and regular meetings;

  • actively develop additional water resources by completing resource evaluations with the Brazos River Authority and other regional partners; and

  • determine ratio of single-family to multifamily units for the city by enhancing the 2030 comprehensive plan guidelines.

City Council developed the areas of emphasis during a Feb. 5 visioning session with city staff. Then on March 23, council confirmed the city’s goals, said David Morgan, Georgetown city manager.

The areas of emphasis include governance, growth, housing, economic development and downtown, Morgan added.

City staff will present council with a more detailed action plan at upcoming city workshops.
