Pflugerville officials have approved a rezoning of nearly 13 acres along East Black Locust Drive from agricultural to a mixed-use residential development.

During a second reading at a Nov. 9 meeting, City Council greenlighted the rezoning for a development called to be Black Locust Townhomes that will consist of 12.88 acres on the south side of East Black Locust and east of Swenson Farms Boulevard.


City documents state the rezoning will allow for condominiums, single-family detached homes and single-family attached townhomes.

City staff said the development will now move into the subdivision process.
