A proposed development north of Cameron Road and west of the 1849 Park athletic complex in Pflugerville has moved forward via an approved rezoning of the land from agricultural designation to a planned unit development.

The rezone approval was initiated Aug. 24 and officially approved during a Sept. 14 Pflugerville City Council meeting.

The community, called Cameron 96, would consist of single-family structures and duplexes for rent, as well as several dozen single-family homes for sale, commercial spaces and parkland.

Information from the city states the 96-acre planned unit development will connect 1849 Park to nearby developments through the regional Wilbarger Greenway.

Among the selling points, city documents state the development intends to fill a housing option known as "missing middle," which consists of more affordable, mixed density housing units that are within walkable communities.



Pflugerville Planning and Development Services Assistant Jeremy Frazzell said Aug. 24 that once the second reading of the rezone passed, the development would move into the subdivision process.
