Hutto has managed to maintain its small-town character despite being named the fastest-growing city in the region. The Hutto Activity Center stretches east from SH-130 to FM1660 North, including a portion of the Gateway Overlay district, several schools and commercial centers, and historic Old Town Hutto.
Large tracts of open land separate the different areas, making this a prime opportunity for a holistic plan that will integrate the uses and create a vibrant city center. It is expected that the study of mobility and connectivity issues required of all cities will take additional time and community involvement in Hutto due to the pending development of the Temple College and Texas State Technical College campuses in the Activity Center. Although design of the campuses is not within the scope of this project, they will be on-going simultaneously, and the city needs to coordinate mobility and connectivity solutions between the campuses and the rest of the Activity Center. Physical planning and transportation options are needed to bridge the historic appeal of Old Town Hutto with the new emerging sections of the Activity Center.
In addition, the city of Hutto has been particularly interested in an economic development study that goes deeper into the impacts of the campuses and their relation to the Activity Center and local businesses.
