Public Invited to Meeting for Review of New Hays County Development Standards Addressing Water Sustainability, Wimberley City Hall
Hays County Commissioners to be present at meeting scheduled for 6 PM, Tuesday, July 21, 2009. Location is Wimberley City Hall at 12111 Ranch Road 12.
Water is a limited resource in the Wimberley Valley.
The Hays County Commissioners Court will hold a meeting at 6 PM on Tuesday, July 21, 2009 at Wimberley City Hall. The topic of the meeting will be the new county development standards and the question of minimum lot sizing for individual residential wells.

Wimberley and other parts of Hays County are soft targets for developers who look for a place with few restrictions on the use of dwindling resources like water. The engineering consultant for Hays County has recommended a minimum lot size of 6.5 acres for new subdivisions of residential lots dependent on individual wells. This lot size recommendation recognizes the need to limit residential density to allow for aquifer recharge.

Currently, county commissioners are not all in agreement about the merits of this recommendation. Jim McMeans, spokesman for C.A.R.D., reports that the organization has taken a position in favor of the 6.5 acre recommendation.

C.A.R.D. (Citizens Alliance for Responsible Development) was formed by local citizens with the mission to promote sustainable growth in the valley and discourage irresponsible building that depletes limited water resources. Concerned citizens are urged to attend the meeting at Wimberley City Hall in the shopping center at 12111 Ranch Road 12.

C.A.R.D. also invites those interested in helping to keep Wimberley and Hays County communities sustainable to join them and exercise your right to protect the area's natural resources.
