Hutto City Council annexed two parcels of land totaling more than 300 acres into the city for future development.

Lidell-Walker Tracts is the larger of the two parcels, coming in at 263.008 acres. The parcel is located south of Chandler Road and FM 1660. It is intended to be the site of 1,123 single-family homes developed by WMV North Hutto.


The second parcel, called Urbana at Cottonwood Creek, is a 43.521-acre tract located near US 79 and CR 199. It will host a combination of attached and detached single-family units intended to bridge the gap between multifamily apartments and more traditional single-family homes.

"It's kind of a quasi-hybrid between the two," said Ashley Lumpkin, the city's executive director of development services. "It's actually really innovative."

The council approved the annexation of both parcels at its Sept. 16 meeting, but the Lidell-Walker Tracts parcel will require a second reading and vote at the council's next meeting Oct. 7.
