The commissioners recommended the rezoning of land adjacent to the Bryson community from single-family suburban to single-family estate, which would extend the lot size allowed on the land, Leander City Planner Martin Siwek said. Stefan Pharis, principal for Pharis Design, Inc., wrote in a letter of intent that the tract would be incorporated into the Bryson community, according to the meeting agenda packet.
Developer Tommy Tucker of Crescent Communities said the tract will be divided into 15 lots. Bryson will have approximately 1,500 homes when complete, Tucker said.
Sabina Nugent, who lives outside Leander city limits near Bryson, said she supported the rezoning but was concerned about drainage from the development.
“With concrete, construction, all of the building that’s going on, that water goes somewhere,” Nugent said.
Siwek said that according to city and state requirements, developers are not allowed to increase runoff from their sites more than the existing runoff before development.
The recommendation from the commission will go to Leander City Council for approval.
