Regional Planning

 

The 2010 Census showed that over 50% of Bastrop County residents commute to Travis County for work. This number is likely to increase as growth and affordability issues in Central Austin cause more home buyers to look outside the City limits for somewhere to live. At the same time, Bastrop County employers now have access to a growing and diverse workforce, making the County an attractive place for businesses seeking growth and investment opportunities. Given these relationships, it is becoming more and more important to address planning and growth on a wider regional scale, and not only at the County level.

 

Bastrop County participates in a number of regional organizations for the Austin and wider Central Texas area, including the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) and the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG).

 

Below are some of the regional planning initiatives currently underway. We encourage you to get involved!

 

CAMPO Active Transportation Plan 2045

 

 

The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is putting together a Regional Active Transportation Plan. The plan seeks to identify near and long term projects which will meet the needs of pedestrians and cyclists in Austin and the surrounding counties.

Project Connect

 

Do you work or study in Austin?  Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CMTA) and its regional planning partners are currently updating Project Connect  - a High-Capacity Transit study focusing on the Greater Austin Area.

 

The first public consultation meeting Traffic Jam! A Mobility Solutions Workshop for Central Texans  will be held at the Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin on Saturday, March 4, 2017 between 8:30 am and 1 pm.

 

  • A Metro bus will be at the Bastrop County Courthouse on the morning of Saturday, March 4th beginning at 7:15 am to take all interested parties (including families) to the workshop.  The bus will park at the south end of the courthouse parking lot on Walnut St.  Participants can park in the County parking lot.  The bus will depart at 7:40 am for downtown Austin.
  • The workshop/orientation will be held at the Bullock Texas State History Museum.  A special space has been set up for children.
  • Breakfast tacos will be available at the workshop and boxed lunches will be provided for the ride home.
  • The bus will  depart Austin at  1:00 pm to return to Bastrop.
  • Participants wishing to ride the bus must RSVP by calling the County Judge’s office at 512-332-7201.
