The Kyle City Council approved the first reading of an ordinance Jan. 4 to annex approximately 102 acres at the corner of FM 150 and SH-21 into the city of Kyle as it is adjacent and contiguous to the city limits but is technically in Hays County land.





Representatives of JD’s Supermarkets purchased the plot of land a year and a half ago and plan on building a grocery store.

JD's Supermarkets is a small, family-owned chain of grocery stores with locations in Austin and Cedar Creek.

“To get any permits for the site, they have to be annexed into the city,” City Planner Will Atkinson said.

Following the annexation, it will need to apply for zoning ordinances and development permits to move the project forward.


“It would be ridiculous for anyone to be against this because we are a food desert on that side,” Council Member Yvonne Flores-Cale said at a previous City Council meeting regarding this project.

There will be a second reading of the ordinance for the annexation at the upcoming City Council meeting Jan. 18.
