Grassland Village Special Area Plan Open House Recap

gsd_plan_openhouse_2Williamson County Planning Staff and the Grassland Citizen’s Advisory Committee introduced the Grassland Village Special Area Plan to the community on December 10, 2012. Approximately 60-75 people attended the open house from 6:30 – 8:30pm at Grassland Middle School. The informal meeting introduced the staff, committee members, and planning process to members of the community and gave the opportunity to ask questions. There was a brief presentation by county staff members, Mike Matteson and Katy Rucker, followed by an open viewing of various plan process information and maps for questions and discussion with staff and committee members.

What is the Plan?

The plan will serve as our vision to guide future land use and development decisions, recommendations for future development, and a basis for the creation of development standards.
