Toward a Regional Plan for the Texas Hill Country

Community and Regional Planning, Hill Country Studio, The University of Texas at Austin

The Hill Country Alliance (HCA) presented The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture (UTSOA) with their collaborative strategy and draft vision for the Texas Hill Country. The Alliance asked UTSOA to use fresh eyes and planning expertise to provide new ideas and strategies for HCA to consider as they work toward a better future for this special region. Dean Frederick Steiner recruited Professor Robert Yaro as Potter Rose Visiting Professor to lead a planning studio to craft this implementation strategy for the Alliance. Mr. Yaro recently retired as president of New York’s Regional Plan Association, and has had a long career in planning for large landscapes in other parts of the country.
