Project Team: Citizens Advisory Committee

The Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) was appointed by the Hays County Commissioners' Court to facilitate landowner and stakeholder participation in the development of the Hays County Conservation Plan. The CAC was formed in accordance with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Code regulating the development of regional HCPs by local governments. The CAC includes a member appointed by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and the greater of four members or 33 percent of members must own land in the plan area.

The CAC will be charged with providing guidance to Hays County and the consultant team to help ensure that the conservation plan reflects the community interests.

CAC meetings are open to the public, and agendas and meeting notes will be posted on this page as they become available.
