Great turnout for the first Comprehensive Plan, Round Rock 2030 Meeting

The first of four Public meetings held for residents to give feedback on the Comprehensive Plan, Round Rock 2030 was held on Tuesday, February 5th at the Baca Center. The Public meeting was so well attended that the remaining three meetings, scheduled to be held at other venues around the city, will be relocated to the Baca Center Dining Room to better accommodate larger crowds. There were over 112 individuals who attended the Southeast quadrant meeting on Tuesday. Those in attendance had an opportunity to hear about the issues that face the community and how the Comprehensive Plan is used by the City.

After a short formal presentation, those in attendance were asked to write down some of their thoughts on small labels. The comments were to be focused on how they see our City today and where they see it in the future. The labels, with the comments, were then placed on easels in the front of the room. Everyone in attendance could “Like” any comment they saw posted using a blue dot label they were given. They could place the blue dot on any label with comments they agreed with.

Next, they were asked to fill out a ballot-like form with more questions regarding the City. Finally, the attendees were given an opportunity to participate in an interactive poll using their cell phones which was actually a lot of fun. The multiple choice poll responses, which instantly appeared on the large screen at the front of the room, gave attendees instant feedback on how the other attendees felt about the question posted.

The general consensus heard from those in attendance was that it was a fun opportunity to learn about the plan, how it is used, meet neighbors and give honest input.

All the meetings are open to the public and will include the same presentation. The City decided to have multiple meetings with smaller crowds to allow attendees a better chance to interact and ask questions. Each meeting had been assigned a geographical quadrant of town and date as shown on the map and schedule attached.

Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting associated with the area of town where they live. However, if you cannot attend the meeting that is scheduled for your quadrant you can attend one of the other remaining meetings.

The next meeting is for residents of the southwest region and scheduled for Tuesday, February 12, 6-8 p.m. (Southwest residents)
