Williams Drive Gateway Plan

The City of Georgetown is updating the 2030 Comprehensive Plan, which serves as the roadmap for our future. The Update includes a small area plan for Williams Drive between Austin Avenue and Lakeway Drive. This small area plan builds upon the findings of the 2017 Williams Drive Study. Your participation is crucial to the planning process and we would like your feedback.

Email 2030@georgetown.org until March 9th, 2020, to set up Office Hours with Staff, a one-on-one opportunity to have your questions answered.

Introduction

The plan focuses on a 558-acre area consisting of established neighborhoods and commercial development along Williams Drive between San Gabriel Park and Lakeway Drive, along with the adjacent developments and neighborhoods. The vision of the plan is a vibrant mixed-use center and gateway and establishes policies for future development of the area. This plan designates future land uses, desired street networks, and public and private improvements. This plan provides City-adopted policy direction to guide decision-making and prioritization of development opportunities, transportation improvements, and partnerships.

  • The Plan establishes a vision and objectives for the development and future of the Williams Drive area with unique character.
  • Public and private agencies will use this plan in coming years for many purposes and actions that affect the form and function of the area.
