An 11-acre plat of land in Lakeway was rezoned to commercial/retail status during Lakeway City Council's June 15 meeting.
The rezoning was the latest step in the advancement of a multiuse development called The Square on Lohmans, which will mostly contain residential housing. The rezoning approval for the 11 acres is for a parcel that sits along Lohmans Crossing.
Two Lakeway residents living near the acreage submitted complaints to City Council, expressing their objections, citing added traffic, noise and higher density.
Information from the city states the land's owners, Carlson, Brigance & Doering Inc., must submit for approval a preliminary plan and plat to the Lakeway Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council prior to its development.
