The TIRZ Priority Projects
The Dripping Springs City Council approved the Old Fitzhugh Road Concept Plan on August 21, 2018. This plan seeks to preserve the rural character of the current street while improving traffic flow, pedestrian access and safety, and drainage issues. It will remain a two-lane road and will complement the improvements made on Mercer Street several years ago. The plan has an eight-foot wide walking trail on one side of the road, and the road will have curbs on one side to direct water flow into the natural drainage areas. Above is the rendering of the plan.

Wecome to the Town Center Project!
One of our most important projects is our Town Center Project.
The proposed Town Center project is located near the west end of Mercer St., utilizing land owned by the City of Dripping Springs and The Dripping Springs Independent School District.
The Town Center provides a unique alignment of critical civic needs. The City of Dripping Springs, the Dripping Springs Independent School District, Dripping Springs Community Library and Hays County all have both short term and long critical needs for new public facilities, in order to serve the growing community.
The conceptual planning for the Town Center seeks to create a new community focal point for the town which expands civic capacities and promotes economic vitality, while building on the historic character of Dripping Springs.
You can find out a little more on our Town Center Square by visiting our special TIRZ section on the Town Center here: Town Center Project.

Downtown Parking Project:
This project emerges from a Comprehensive Plan goal to look at expanding parking options in Downtown Dripping Springs.
This work will inventory existing parking including opportunities for shared parking after hours, and identify potential locations for new parking.
A conceptual parking plan will then be developed for review and outreach purposes with Downtown and Historic District Stakeholders.
Dripping Springs Adopts Parking Ordinance
On Tuesday, June 16, 2020, the Dripping Springs City Council adopted a new Downtown Parking Ordinance that ensures parking needs are met, but also doesn’t place an unnecessary strain on development as the City grows and attracts more visitors. Some of the key provisions of the ordinance:
