Background Information:

This property is part of the larger La Cima Development included in a Development Agreement with the City of San Marcos originally adopted September 16, 2014 (Resolution 2014-131R); amended in 2018 (Resolution 2018-75R). This agreement regulates issues including but not limited to the schedule of annexation, the permitted uses and development standards, impervious cover, environmental and water quality standards, and architectural design standards. The Future Development (“FD”) zoning classification is a default classification for newly annexed land. Per the development agreement, SF-4.5 is an allowable residential use. Phase 1, Section 2 provides for development of 101 residential lots, seven new streets, and seven open space lots. The zoning request is being processed concurrently with an annexation request for the property.

 

The City of San Marcos will provide water and wastewater services at the site. The developer has extended water and wastewater facilities through the site. Pedernales Electric Cooperative will provide electric service to this development.

 

Upon annexation, the property will be zoned “FD”, the default classification for newly annexed land. The annexation request will be considered prior to the zoning change by City Council.  See Comprehensive Plan Analysis Checklist and Criteria Checklists.
