Council Approves Pedestrian Mobility Plan

On Thursday, May 6, 2010, the Hutto City Council unanimously approved the second and final reading of the Hutto Pedestrian Mobility Plan. The Pedestrian Mobility Plan is a guide for new sidewalks and trails in Hutto. In 2008, the planning staff conducted an inventory of all existing sidewalks in Hutto as well as a survey of citizens’ thoughts on constructing new sidewalks. This information was collected, and staff members from Planning, Engineering, Parks, Public Works, and GIS convened to come up with a city-wide plan for sidewalks and trail connections. Using the pedestrian mobility priority criteria previously adopted by City Council, the “Pedestrian Mobility Team” identified the key projects and roadways that are in need of sidewalks or trail connections, and prioritized them according to the criteria’s scoring system. The system tends to emphasize school routes or routes in close proximity to schools. The plan will be incorporated into Hutto’s Growth Guidance Plan, and will eventually be incorporated into a full Comprehensive Plan.

City Considers 2011-2015 Capital Improvements Plan

The City first adopted a Capital Improvements Plan (CIP) in 2006 and has updated the document annually as part of the budget process. The CIP outlines major capital streets and drainage, water, wastewater, parks, and facilities projects. These projects are determined by City departments based on the current citizens wants and needs as well as the forecasted future growth, that are to be conducted within the next five years. Because of Hutto’s exponential growth, the City has numerous capital improvements underway in various stages including Fritz Park Improvements, the Hutto Lake Park, and Farley/Taylor Street improvements.

Hutto citizens are invited to attend a CIP Open House on June 8th from 6-7 pm in the City Council Chambers to learn more about these upcoming capital projects. The Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a meeting immediately following the Open House to discuss the proposed plan.

To view the draft Capital Improvements Plan visit www.HuttoTX.gov. Please direct any questions to Finance Director, Micah Grau, at 759-4046 or by email at micah.grau@huttotx.gov

Hutto Presents Proposal to Temple College Board of Directors

The City, HISD and the EDC have been diligently preparing the final presentation to the Temple College Board of Directors for their meeting on Monday, May 17, 2010. A tremendous showing of Hutto leadership was on hand for the March 23rd presentation to Dr. Glenda Barron, President of Temple College and Dr. Elton Stuckly, President of the TSTC. We are once again seeking support from the leadership of our community to be at this meeting as we present our final proposal to the Board of Directors. At this meeting we will present our proposal for the Hutto campus and how the first phase can be built and opened by January 2012.

Since the initial presentation in March, staff has been meeting with officials from Temple College and TSTC at the TSTC Waco campus to discuss the issues that need to be addressed for Temple College and TSTC to consider a commitment to a Hutto campus along SH 130. An outline has been developed for the concerns to be addressed in the May 17th presentation.

Additionally, the financial aspects of this proposal that address the sustainability piece are now being finalized for the presentation as staff continues to meet with a bond attorney and the finance staff of Temple College and TSTC. The planner has completed the site plan for the ultimate build-out of a 56-acre campus for Temple College/TSTC that will be included in the presentation.
