A new neighborhood in Hutto is slated to have nearly 1,000 homes and feature larger lot sizes.

Following Hutto City Council's May 6 approval to annex 456.753 acres of land to create the Lakeside Municipal Utility District No. 9, school district boundary lines still need to be finalized.

The new neighborhood is planned near the Williamson County and Travis County lines, south and east of The Lookout at Brushy Creek neighborhood, and east of where Rowe Lane currently ends. The purpose of the annexation agreement, which swaps a comparable-sized parcel of Hutto land with the city of Pflugerville in its extraterritorial jurisdiction, was for a Hutto ISD and Pflugerville ISD boundary exchange to make the whole community part of Hutto ISD.

Matt Tiemann, Tiemann Land and Cattle Development Inc. development manager, said company officials are working with Hutto and Pflugerville ISDs to finalize the ISD boundary changes.

Both school districts have already given the development firm letters of intent regarding the boundary exchange, he said. The formal documentation is expected to go through in May, and both districts will execute a joint resolution. Tiemann said the boundary exchange should be completed by summer before the 2021-22 school year starts.


Lakeside MUD 9 will offer 998 larger home options on 45-, 55- or 70-foot-wide lots. Homes will range in size from 1,700-4,000 square feet. Tiemann said price ranges are from $350,000-$750,000, but those could change depending upon rising lumber prices and demand.

"It seems like there might be some pent-up demand in Hutto for larger lots," he said. "It's a very homogenous town in terms of house sizing."

Plans for the MUD will include 45 acres dedicated for parkland and a 20-acre lot for a future elementary school site, which the Tiemann group will donate to Hutto ISD.

During the May 6 City Council meeting, Tiemann said the company wanted to start construction as soon as possible.
