Lakeway issues survey designed to help guide comprehensive plan steering committee


In keeping with their ongoing outreach campaign with citizens, Lakeway city officials, staff and committee members are administering a survey to benefit the city’s comprehensive plan and seeking feedback on a number of topics—from what can be done to make Lakeway better to what city issues are most important to residents.

The survey is one tool that will help guide Lakeway’s Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee as it continues its work toward a comprehensive plan estimated to be complete by winter 2019-20.

Information from the city of Lakeway states the comprehensive plan provides goals, objectives and direction for the community for the next 20 years, and serves as a guiding document for city leaders when making decisions about land use, capital improvements, and future growth.

“The feedback you provide in this survey will help craft goals and a vision statement for the 2040 plan,” Lakeway’s website states.

The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee launched the survey April 13 at Lakeway’s Eggstravaganza! At City Park event, and will be available for residents to fill out and submit until May 24.

Steering committee chair Larry Harlan gave an update on the survey April 25 at City Hall during Mayor Sandy Cox’s State of Lakeway address. The comprehensive plan is meant to guide the city and its leaders up through 2014, Harlin said.

“The main thing we need to keep in mind is the importance of transparency,” Harlan said, adding a key focus is determining what the residents of Lakeway want for the city.

The next step after hearing from citizens about their priorities is to determine several factors, from what to do with ad valorem taxes to traffic, Harlan said.

A status update on the survey will also be given at Lakeway’s town hall meeting May 16 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Activity Center.
