It’s truly amazing how much our Hill Country community of Hays, Blanco and Gillespie counties have come together to oppose Kinder Morgan’s Permian Highway pipeline. Uniting against this existential, external threat has brought us together to stand up for our rights for clean water and to protect the health and safety of our families and the beautiful Hill Country land that we love.

Now we need to unite against another existential threat to our Hill Country rivers, springs, and way of life here in Hays County.  This threat is home grown.

It’s our very own Hays County Transportation Plan. Adopted in January 2013, it calls for a vast network of new highways in the Blanco and Onion Creek watersheds: a new loop around Wimberley; a new loop around western San Marcos;  a new loop around Dripping Springs; and RR 12, RM 1826 and FM 150 converted into 4 and 6 lane divided highways.  The 2013 plan would expand virtually every existing FM, RM, RR, and CR in western Hays County.
