Comprehensive Plan 

The 2020 Comprehensive Plan was approved by City Council in March 2020. We appreciate the hard work of the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee over the past year in completing this document.

City of Lakeway Comprehensive Plan 2020

This Comprehensive Plan outlines the vision of our community during the next 20 years. It was developed with input from stakeholders as summarized in this section. The recommendations in this document should be used to guide City leaders in
decisions regarding community identity, environment, land use, transportation strategies, infrastructure, community recreational and cultural programs, community facilities and parks, business and economic development, and finally principles for working
cooperatively with our neighbors with a commitment to long-term planning. Landowners, developers, agencies, and appointed and/or elected officials should recognize the significance of this plan. The degree to which this plan is followed will, in large part, determine the degree to which the stated vision will become reality.

Background Regarding the Development Process

July 2019 Update

Thanks to all the Lakeway citizens who provided input to the Comprehensive Plan at the May 16 Town Hall and who completed the plan survey.  That input is now being compiled and will be made available for the public to review.  The Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee will be using this information to develop a vision for Lakeway 2040 and a plan to achieve that vision.  More citizen input will be sought in the coming months as the process continues.

We collected 974 responses to the Comprehensive Plan survey and received more than 2,700 comments. Based on that feedback, we’ve created a ranking of the five top priorities and the most frequently used words and phrases from comments. Click this link for more details

The committee’s mission is to develop a new comprehensive plan for Lakeway that will be used for the next 15-20 years. Once approved by City Council, the plan will help guide city leaders in areas such as land use, transportation, infrastructure, parks and recreation, wildlife management, and historical preservation.
