The Round Rock City Council rezoned a 6.5-acre tract of land to a planned unit development Jan. 13.

Located off of Old Settlers Boulevard, the property is set to be developed into a townhome community with a maximum of 78 units. These dwellings are planned to be three stories in height, with a minimum 10-foot setback, masonry wall and trees. These units will also be oriented north to south, with the front and back of each unit prohibited from overlooking adjacent property, according to city documents.


Amenities to be provided to residents of the development include a dog park, playground and picnic areas.

Brad Wiseman, Round Rock's planning and development director, highlighted this detail during his presentation of the project, stating multiple homeowners in an adjacent subdivision expressed concerns that this project would allow residents to see directly into their neighbors' yards. He said this is a common concern with many residential projects.
