BLD Crystal Springs, LLC is working with Pape-Dawson Engineers to develop six pieces of land, approximately 128.4 acres, located southeast of the intersection of Raider Way and East Crystal Falls Parkway and west of the Cold Springs subdivision, according to the agenda packet.
The first step in subdivision development is the approval of a concept plan, Leander Planning Manager Robin Griffin said.
At the meeting, the commission evaluated a concept plan for the subdivision, which designates access roads and dedicates approximately 59.17 acres for parkland.
One resident spoke during the public hearing for the concept plan, asking if a detailed zoning map was available. Leander Assistant City Manager Tom Yantis said these details are not included in the concept stage.
Griffin said concepts plans determine major access ways, the density of the project and designated parkland.
“It’s the overall basic stuff,” Griffin said. “We don’t get into lots and street layout yet.”
The Crystal Springs concept plan was passed by the commission and will go to the Leander City Council for final approval.

Bryson planned unit development
Applicant Jean Baptiste Ltd. requested for the zoning of its Bryson planned unit development/transit oriented development district within the conventional development sector to be amended to cottage housing and local commercial base zoning districts.
Griffin said property in the conventional development sector cannot begin to be developed without the designation of a zoning district.
The zoning commission approved the recommendation for rezoning. The land is located to the northeast of Huddleston Road and Toll 183A and is approximately 20.6 acres, according to the agenda packet.
As a PUD/TOD, the development is intended to be pedestrian-oriented, with benches and sidewalks, Griffin said. If City Council approves the commission's decision, the property will be split between commercial and residential zoning.
