UPDATED: DEC. 10, 7:40 p.m.

Pflugerville City Council unanimously approved the second reading on an ordinance to rezone the city's proposed SH 130 mixed-use development as a planned unit development, or PUD, at council's Dec. 10 meeting.

The 120-acre site would be rezoned from its current t CL-4 designation, an urban code that outlines "walkable neighborhoods and employment centers," per city documents. If approved on second reading, the site would be rezoned as a PUD in order to "establish a compact, walkable development, with open space provided throughout," per city documents.

ORIGINAL POST

Pflugerville City Council unanimously approved a 30-day extension for the second reading and action on an ordinance that would rezone the city's proposed SH 130 mixed-use development as a planned unit development, or PUD.


The 120-acre site, unofficially referred to as NorthPointe, includes both an east and a west campus with residential, commercial, retail, entertainment and recreational facilities. Negba Group founder Tomas Sheleg said plans include 4,000 residential units.

The 120-acre site would be rezoned from its current t CL-4 designation, an urban code that outlines "walkable neighborhoods and employment centers," per city documents. If approved on second reading, the site would be rezoned as a PUD in order to "establish a compact, walkable development, with open space provided throughout," per city documents.

The vision for the project, as outlined by Pflugerville Planning Director Emily Barron during council's Oct. 8 meeting, is to offer a mixed use of residential living and employment centers with medium- and high-density residential units. Both the city's planning and zoning commission and parks and recreation department recommended approval of the ordinance, outlining that a PUD would establish "multiple opportunities, flexibility and certainty" for the project as it begins its development process.

Per the Nov. 26 resolution, the extension of the ordinance's second reading time frame would allow for council " to consider a Public Improvement District (PID) and Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone (TIRZ) within a similar time frame."
