Lago Vista, Texas is a lake-side community of 10,000 near Austin. Rapid population growth has strained the city’s infrastructure. Despite growth, state law constrains budget expansion, requiring the city to carefully prioritize spending.
City leaders wanted citizen feedback on the following five high-cost initiatives so they could confidently sequence them.
- Repair water/wastewater infrastructure
- Enhance city parks
- Repair/resurface streets
- Build new City offices/library
- Renovate City golf course
The primary objective for City leaders was to prioritize the initiatives and to understand their reasons.
