To all interested: Hays County Commissioners Court will NOT take up consideration of the Jacob's Well Natural Area Master Plan at its Tuesday May 1 meeting. Previously, the RoundUp reported the plan most likely would be on the court's May 1 agenda, according to county grants administrator Jeff Hauff. Hauff told the RoundUp, "I can almost assure you it would be the May 1 meeting." Alas, it did not make it on the agenda. We have a note in to Mr. Hauff and Commissioner Will Conley asking for the reason for the delay.
The master plan, with its estimated cost of $3.6 million, lately has taken on renewed interest from alert citizens. Some are expressing concerns that the master plan, as drafted, will lead to over-development of Jacob's Well and contradicts basic preservation principles for natural areas.
