Two tracts of land totaling 87.6 acres could soon be annexed into Hutto for multifamily development.

Hutto City Council will consider annexation and zoning for the tracts at a June 1 meeting after holding public hearings for the items.

The larger of the two at 46.8 acres, the Schmidt Fields tract is located on Ed Schmidt Boulevard, just north of the intersection with Limmer Loop.

City documents state a multistory multifamily housing development is proposed for the site along with 5 acres of commercial development.

The proposed planned unit development zoning for the tract includes limits on building height within 125 feet of the neighboring subdivision and mandates an 85-foot buffer zone.

The second tract—called the Upper Schmidts Creek tract—consists of 40.8 acres at the southeast corner of Ed Schmidt Boulevard and Limmer Loop.

According to city documents, plans for the site include single-family homes and duplexes for rent.

Stipulations in the planned unit development include height limits near existing homes and the prohibition of porches or balconies facing those homes.

Council was previously slated to consider annexing the Upper Schmidts Creek Tract in April but postponed the item pending details on the zoning request.

Both items will require a second reading at a later meeting.
