Following zoning changes, a further public hearing over the Reed Ranch Planned Development District will be held at Bastrop City Hall. Located off of Hwy. 71, the 25-acre development plans include two- and four-story multifamily apartment buildings.

The specifics

In response to public input from previous hearings, the following changes have been made to the development plan:
  • Apartments adjacent to the Bastrop Grove neighborhood are limited to a maximum of two stories.
  • The throughway at Jessica Place is eliminated.
  • West side units are limited to a maximum of four stories.
  • Landscaping along the setbacks from the residential neighborhood will be increased.
After considering the developer’s request to waive impact fees, fees required of new developers to offset roadwork costs in Bastrop, the planning and zoning commission recommended offering a grace period from 12 months to 18 months.

Also on the agenda

Council will consider the approval of $16,991 to the Bastrop Opera House from the city’s Hotel Tax Fund. A further $149,109 and $289,107 in hotel occupancy tax awarded to the Lost Pines Art Center and the Bastrop Historical Society, respectively, will also be considered at the meeting.
