Hays County is updating its Transportation Plan to identify safety improvements, improve regional connections and mobility, and plan for future growth and development over the next two decades. This planning document will serve as a tool to help identify and implement short and long-term projects, preserve right-of-way, and collaborate with regional partners to guide our future transportation landscape.

Wimberley Valley Trails Project
The Wimberley Valley Trails initiative is an effort to develop a multi-year vision to improve connectivity in the City of Wimberley and surrounding areas. This vision includes a system of hike and bike trails, a variety of transportation options, and other strategies to help connect people with nature and link regional points of interest in the community. To pay for these improvements, the City of Wimberley and/or Hays County may apply for a variety of state and federal grants that support community development projects related to trails, job creation, or other safety improvements. It is anticipated that the project would rank very well. Visit the project website to learn more and get involved.
