County seeks input on sports complex located in western Travis County
AUSTIN, TEXAS – Travis County Parks is presenting a preliminary plan for a new sports complex and answering questions about the project on Thursday, October 25, 2018, at the Lakeway Activity Center Ballroom. Funding for this project was approved by county voters in November, 2017.
Totaling $23.5 million, the Bee Creek Sports Complex is one of the largest projects in the 2017 Travis County bond program. It also is being completed in partnership with the City of Lakeway. The city purchased 70 acres at 4440 Bee Creek Road with a $3.765 million bond city voters approved in their 2014 general election. The county, through an interlocal agreement with the city, is leasing the property and taking on its development, operations, maintenance, and management.
Travis County Precinct 3 Commissioner Gerald Daugherty says “These types of partnerships with local governments are a great opportunity for leveraging our resources. By working together, we’re able to provide the youth sports facilities that this community needs, and that we couldn’t provide on our own.” Once built, the Bee Creek Sports Complex will include the following:
- Synthetic, multi-use fields for soccer, baseball, football and other sports
- Meeting facility for teams
- Playground and picnic areas
- Improved and primitive trails
- Maintenance building
- Other amenities and associated infrastructure
This meeting will be an opportunity for the public to see the initial concept plan for the park and offer input. After attendees have an opportunity to review the project displays, a 15-minute presentation will be given, followed by an open discussion with county staff and consultants. Refreshments are provided. All are invited and encouraged to attend. For more information, visit: https://bit.ly/BeeCreek
