Bee Cave City Council approved a conditional-use permit allowing for a child day care facility to be developed on a mostly vacant lot on Hwy. 71.

The Bee Cave Early Learning Center will be located at 15054 Hwy. 71 next to Bee Cave Self Storage and is planned to be a 10,000-square-foot, one-story day care facility with an additional 4,399 square feet of outdoor playground area.


City information states hours of operation for the day care would be from 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, but one condition from the city stipulates outdoor play cannot take place until after 7 a.m.

City documents show the applicant for the day care facility is listed as Lennox Equities LLC.

Council approved the permit at its Nov. 12 regular meeting with several conditions, including a requirement for 45 off-street parking spaces, all lights must comply with city lighting and glare standards, all signage must comply with city signage standards, and the facility owner must allow the Bee Cave Police Department to enforce parking and fire lane violations within the parking and driveway areas of the property.
