Marble Falls city officials are inviting residents to speak out on issues of future growth and planning as the city updates its comprehensive plan, which is set to be adopted by the City Council this fall.

The Marble Falls Comprehensive Plan helps guide city planning when it comes to traffic, future development, parks, trails, infrastructure, and housing. The last plan was adopted in 2016.

As part of the city’s public outreach, officials have created an online survey and are hosting an in-person community open house from 6-8 p.m. May 9 at Lakeside Pavilion, 307 Buena Vista Drive. 

“Community input drives the overall development of the Comprehensive Plan and is vital to the plan’s success,” Director of Development Services Kim Foutz said in a media release. “This is a chance for the community to share their values, vision, and hopes for the future of the City of Marble Falls.”

In addition to gathering public input, the city also is seeking feedback on its Hazard Mitigation Action Plan to help identify and analyze potential hazards affecting residents so it can look at possible actions to reduce their impact.

City planning consultant Gabe Rojas will be present at the May 9 open house to answer questions regarding the Hazard Mitigation Action Plan.

For more information on the plans, survey, and open house, call 830-693-6737.
