About Us

 The location, natural beauty and  character of Hays County have resulted in a significant increase in the  population of Hays County, and this growth is projected to continue. We  welcome new residents of Hays County, and we must accommodate this  population increase. However, improvements made to date have eliminated  features and sites that formed and were the character of Hays County.  This character of Hays County is not only our history but also our  future. The beauty of Hays County has served to create a thriving wine  industry, bed and breakfast/resorts, restaurants and active  heritage-tourism trade that appreciates Hays County as it exists today.  The nature of Hays County may change, but segments must be preserved out  of respect for our past, the heritage-tourism economic engine of today,  and the benefit of future generations. 

Adopt-a-Highway Program

DHCS has adopted a two-mile stretch of FM 150. Cleanup events are every quarter.

Thanks to the organizational efforts of the members of the  Beautification Committee, we had another wonderful “Adopt-A-Highway” event on October 21 in Driftwood! Twenty members of all ages joined together to clean  up our adopted section of FM150. The weather was beautiful and we picked  up 23 bags of trash! Thanks to all who came out!  We will continue to  get together quarterly to have some coffee, and bestow some loving  cleanup on our community!  

Participants are asked to review the TxDOT safety information at http://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/get-involved/volunteer/adopt-a-highway/safety-tips.html.
