Bee Cave continues process of land annexation


The city of Bee Cave held its second public hearing regarding the annexation of a little more than four acres of land east of Hamilton Pool Road and northwest of the city limits. The annexation was triggered following the April 2018 sale of the 4.004 acres to Landon Marino of PATSU Capital LP.

Terms of a 2014 development agreement with property owners Wayne and Carol-Lynne Meissner for a 36.694-acre tract of land state if the “owner files any type of subdivision plat, permit application or related development documents for the property, or a portion of the property, with a governmental entity that has jurisdiction over the property or such petitions, regardless of how the property is appraised for ad valorem tax purposes, that in addition to the city’s other remedies, such action will constitute a petition for voluntary annexation by the owner,” according to city documents.

The city issued a supplementary informational packet as part of the public hearing that detailed all of the services that will be made available or provided following annexation, including police and fire protection, emergency medical services, solid waste collection, planning and zoning, animal and nuisance control, flood plain management, and water services.

The city of Bee Cave sent a letter Aug. 3 informing Marino the annexation had been triggered, and PATSU Capital LP submitted a preliminary plat application to Bee Cave on Oct. 8.

Following the second public hearing a timeline put forth by the city states City Council plans to adopt an annexation ordinance Jan. 8.
