The League of Women Voters of Comal Area community forum on “The Future of the Hill Country
Thursday, February 18, 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Bulverde/Spring Branch Library, 131 Bulverde Crossing, in Bulverde.
The forum will present findings from a study just released, “Toward a Regional Plan for the Texas Hill Country.” The presentation will include a description of our Hill Country assets and of possible threats from growth, weak regulatory frameworks, pollution, and natural disaster. Speakers will compare some possible future scenarios for our region and make recommendations for strategies for public policy. They will address growth in urban areas and discuss low-impact development.
The forum’s two speakers participated in the study, which was completed by the University of Texas (UT) School of Architecture and facilitated by the Hill Country Alliance (HCA). Cliff Kaplan is a Program Manager at HCA and coordinated the Hill Country Studio, the partnership between HCA and UT that produced the report. Britin Bostick worked in architecture and construction project management before deciding to pursue graduate degrees in Community and Regional Planning and Public Affairs at UT Austin. Both speakers are working with partners across the region on the strategies outlined in the University of Texas report.
LWV-CA President Roxanna Deane explained, “With all the new construction happening in New Braunfels and Bulverde, and the road work being done across Comal County, community members are wondering about the impacts of growth for our future. We invite all residents and elected officials to come learn about choices and alternative futures for our region.” For details contact: Jensie Madden, 830-935-3360, J-DMadden@att.net
