City updates sign ordinance
The City of Lakeway recently amended its sign ordinance to comply with the Reed v. Town of Gilbert Supreme Court case in regards to noncommercial signs.
Many restrictions were lifted, such as the number of signs and length of time displayed.
In addition, the city extended open house sign hours to include morning hours and Saturdays.
The next installment of the Lakeway Heritage Committee history series will take the audience back to the construction of Mansfield Dam and Lakeway’s early years.
Heritage Committee member Bill Hawkins will deliver the presentation at 7 p.m. Jan. 15 at Lake Travis Community Library, 1938 Lohmans Crossing. The event is free and open to the public.
The Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation built Mansfield Dam, which was critical to Lakeway's establishment.
Lakeway’s origins date back to 1963 when the Lakeway Inn opened and the first homes were built on the shore overlooking Lake Travis.
Additional installments in this series are scheduled for Feb. 19 and March 19, both at 7 p.m. at the library.
