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.
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!
