At its first regular in-person meeting since March 12, Cedar Park City Council will hold five public hearings, including a hearing for the Cedar Park Town Center land sale. Council will also receive an update on activities from the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization.

Council will hold a public hearing and first reading of the ordinance to authorize the conveyance of 13.41 acres in the Cedar Park Town Center. Council will sell the city-owned land for $3.5 million to the city’s Economic Development Sales Tax Corp. Type A Board to make the land available for future development.

The land sale has raised concerns from Cedar Park Town Center residents who worry over proximity to commercial development and loss of green spaces.

Four other public hearings and first readings are on the June 11 agenda. One of the public hearings is to rezone 23.39 acres on Scottsdale Drive with a new conditional overlay to allow for different building uses, according to the agenda.

CAMPO updates


Mayor Corbin Van Arsdale will present an update on the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. On June 8, the CAMPO Transportation Policy Board met and voted to defer $633 million of construction projects. These projects included the reconstruction of part of RM 620 and the widening of Lakeline Boulevard between Parmer Lane and Lyndhurst Boulevard.

Funding for the Toll 183A frontage road project was maintained by the board. This project will build frontage roads on Toll 183A between Avery Ranch Boulevard and RM 1431.

Meeting format changes

The meeting will be held with limited, socially distanced seating in the city’s multipurpose room, located at 450 Cypress Creek Road, Bldg. 3, Cedar Park. Limited overflow seats will be available in the City Council chambers in Building 4, according to city spokesperson Jennie Huerta. Meetings are streamed online.

Council will meet for an executive session at 6:30 p.m. and start the regular meeting at 7 p.m. The meeting will begin with a moment of silence for the death of George Floyd who died May 25 died in Minneapolis, Minnesota, while in police custody.

Public speakers must be present in-person and register to speak in Building Three.
