Regional Planning



The 2010 Census showed that over 50% of Bastrop County residents commute to Travis County for work. This number is likely to increase as growth and affordability issues in Central Austin cause more home buyers to look outside the City limits for somewhere to live. At the same time, Bastrop County employers now have access to a growing and diverse workforce, making the County an attractive place for businesses seeking growth and investment opportunities. Given these relationships, it is becoming more and more important to address planning and growth on a wider regional scale, and not only at the County level.


Bastrop County participates in a number of regional organizations for the Austin and wider Central Texas area, including the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) and the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG).


Below are some of the regional planning initiatives currently underway. We encourage you to get involved!


CAMPO Spring Amendment Cycle


The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is currently carrying out consultation on proposed amendments to projects in the 2040 Regional Transportation Plan and the 2017-2020 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP). The amendments are primarily limited to changes to projects already in these planning documents – such as a change in funding source, project length or limits, or the project description.


An open house event will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at the Smithville Public Library, 507 Main St, Smithville, TX 78957 from 4-7pm.  Please see this flyer for further details and for other consultation events elsewhere in the region.


You can also view the documents and make comments online  on the CAMPO website between Monday, March 20, 2017 and Friday, April 14, 2017. Inquiries should be directed to campo@campotexas.org.


Project Connect


Do you work or study in Austin?  Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CMTA) and its regional planning partners are currently updating Project Connect  - a High-Capacity Transit study focusing on the Greater Austin Area.


You can find out more about Project Connect by visiting their website or click here to go directly to the survey to nominate projects to be taken forward.


CAMPO Active Transportation Plan 2045



The Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO) is putting together a Regional Active Transportation Plan. The plan seeks to identify near and long term projects which will meet the needs of pedestrians and cyclists in Austin and the surrounding counties.
