Georgetown is planning for growth.

Georgetown's growth is coming from two extremes: couples with their children moving into subdivisions (the Village), and the retired community moving into their planned developments (Sun City). Of course there are many other developments for people falling somewhere in between. Downtown is getting a major makeover. Austin Avenue is being revitalized. Austin Avenue Medical Plaza on one end and new condos on the other. Downtown is redoing all the sidewalks and walkways. We are on our way to being pedestrian friendly. Wolfe Ranch Shopping Center was not the death of downtown. Instead Wolf Ranch has provided many Georgetown residents with a new, needed shopping venue.

Our courthouse in the center of the square has been restored. Downtown cafes: Laurie's Cafe, Monument Cafe, El Monumento, Burger University, Wildfire Restaurant, Gumbos, The Hollows, Eats, 600 Degrees Pizza and Drafthouse.

"What will Georgetown be when it grows up?"

Georgetown is a fast growing city, but the city leaders are planning for this growth. The city web site and visitor's bureau keep us informed. Local shops keep their quaintness.

In April of 2015, we have a new city manager in Georgetown. With the rapid growth in Georgetown, we need to plan for the growth rather than let whatever comes our way happen.
