Community Impact Austin writes, "a multifamily project that was recently rezoned would bring a planned 119 housing units to the Sam Bass Road corridor, providing additional housing in a quickly growing area.

What's happening

Round Rock officials voted July 27 on a request to rezone 8.51 acres of land at the intersection of Sam Bass Road and Meadows Drive. The land was previously zoned for public facilities, such as assisted living, government services, medical clinics, places of worship, schools and public offices. It was also previously owned by Freedom Church but was recently sold to a residential developer, said Brad Wiseman, Round Rock's director of planning and development services.

Long story short

The city's comprehensive land-use plan shows this property is compatible with low-density multifamily, Wiseman said, as long as certain criteria are met:

  • The development would have access through an arterial roadway or collector street.
  • Access to nearby single-family neighborhoods is discouraged except for transportation needs or if it were to be part of a master-planned community.
  • The development will not be adjacent to another low-density multifamily project."
