The Timmerman 2020 application applies to a proposed rezoning of approximately 150 acres off Pecan Street, adjacent to the Bohls Place neighborhood and the upcoming Project Charm facility. The application requests a rezoning from the current agriculture designation and development reserve to an urban district, or CL4 zoning.
The proposed urban district would include “vibrant and walkable neighborhoods and employment centers” along SH 130 and SH 45 N, per city documents. Under the proposal, the 150-acre tract of land could be used for a variety of permitted residential and nonresidential uses, Assistant Planning Director Jeremy Frazzell said March 2.
Residential options include assisted-living facilities, condominiums, live-work units and nursing homes. Permitted nonresidential uses could include bars, commercial recreation and entertainment, parking lots, parks, playgrounds and retail, according to city documents.
The tract of land is also eligible for specific uses, such as multifamily residential, miniature warehouses and public storage facilities, mobile food parks and office spaces, per city documents.
The city’s planning and zoning commission held a public hearing and denied recommendation in a 5-2 vote March 2. Per the city’s unified development code, a public hearing is required to be conducted within 60 days of planning and zoning’s hearing. No more than two 30-day extensions are permitted for the application.
The applicant behind the Timmerman 2020 proposal requested the extension due to the coronavirus pandemic, per city documents.
The first public hearing on the proposal, now set for May 12, will be held at 7 p.m.
