Brad Wiseman, the city’s director of planning and development, presented the rezoning application to council.
Wiseman said the city has received a proposal for 18 duplexes—nine buildings with two units apiece—for a nearly three-acre site near Mays Street and McNeil Road.
“I think it could be a great product,” Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan said during a Jan. 7 council meeting. “[Duplexes are] another variety of housing stock that we need for affordability.”
The council on Thursday night approved 7-0 the rezoning request from a prior designation as single family to two family zoning. The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission voted 7-0 on Dec. 4 to recommend approval.
