The city's Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee has met three times as it prepares to develop a new Comprehensive Plan for the city.
The current plan was last updated in 2003.
Committee chairman Larry Harlan told City Council on Nov. 7 that the committee is reviewing and scoring proposals from two consulting firms in order for the city to contract with one of them to guide the committee in its formation of a new plan.
Harlan said a committee member would outline the future scope of the plan at the council's Nov. 19 meeting and request funding to hire a consultant.
Following public review of the Bee Creek Sports Complex Concept Plan, the Travis County Commissioners Court will be considering its approval on Nov. 13.
The court will begin its meeting at 9 a.m. in the commissioners courtroom on the first floor of the Travis County Administration Building, 700 Lavaca, in Austin. The public is welcome to comment on the project.
Approval by the Commissioners Court would allow the project to move forward to the design and engineering phases.
Pending approval from the commissioners, planners expect design to begin in 2019.
