Horseshoe Bay highlights community plans in Oct. 10 forum


HORSESHOE BAY — From kindling commercial interests to protecting the waterways, Horseshoe Bay’s leadership will utilize features outlined in the city’s long-range 2016 Comprehensive Report at an upcoming forum to gather more input and generate civic interest.

Officials are hosting the Mayor’s Citizen Forum at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10, at Quail Point Community Center, 107 Twilight Lane.

Mayor Steve Jordan will host the first forum since Horseshoe Bay city officials approved the latest long-range plan.

The document relied primarily on input from residents to draft and prioritize goals for the community.

Broad-based issues included:
