Lakeway lifts restrictive access for future medical buildings

Thomas Reagan, Bee Creek Stables general partner, addressed Lakeway City Council during the May 20 meeting.

Lakeway City Council approved a request from Bee Creek Stables LP, a company seeking to put medical buildings on 17.5 acres of land off of Bee Creek Road, to reconsider a condition on a special-use permit restricting access into the buildings.

Council approved the original permit April 15 and required access be limited to a right-in-right-out entrance for the complex off Bee Creek Road. The land owner, Thomas Reagan, requested reconsideration of the permit, specifically asking for a change in the access restriction.

A letter to Lakeway Building & Services Director Charlotte Hodges from Thomas Reagan, general partner for Bee Creek Stables, states the access restriction is unnecessary for several reasons and could ultimately kill the project.

Lower traffic counts on Bee Creek Road as opposed to RM 620 and Hwy. 71, an extended line of sight approaching the project’s proposed intersection and requiring traffic to only exit right out of the complex, which may force dangerous U-turns, were some of the reasons Reagan provided for lifting the restriction.
