Hays County Greenprint Stakeholder Meeting: Monday, June 1st

Posted by:

Please save the date for the next Hays County Greenprint Stakeholder meeting:

Monday, June 1st
6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Dripping Springs ISD Central Administration Building Boardroom
510 West Mercer St, Dripping Springs
Light refreshments will be served

At this final Greenprint Stakeholder meeting, we will finalize the overall conservation priority maps, discuss conservation funding opportunities, and brainstorm next steps for communities to use these maps and other strategies related to parks/open space that were raised at our first two meetings. Your attendance is critical to make sure that the “overlap” map, which will serve as the primary opportunity map for the community going forward, reflects a fair balance of interests and that next steps are practical and strategic.

We will follow up soon with an agenda but in the meantime, please RSVP to so we know if you will be attending.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing you on June 1st!
