During the Oct. 20 Kyle City Council meeting, officials approved two new land rezonings and postponed a third, though a city representative said that all three will likely be revisited by the next council meeting, Nov. 4.



104 Creekside Trail

The first plat of land council rezoned is on 2.4 acres located at 104 Creekside Trail. While the zoning request will need to go through one more public reading to officially bring about the ordinance, council moved to approve the shift from multifamily residential to residential condominium rezoning Oct. 20.

Information from the city states the land is owned by KCW Interests 3, LLC and FHC Consolidated of Spicewood, Texas.


Currently undeveloped, the land borders Creekside Villa Drive to the north, another 2.2 acres zoned for apartment residential to the northeast, property to the east and southeast zoned for retail services and agricultural use, and land zoned for a fuel and convenience store to the south, according to city documents.

Those documents also state the rezoning to residential condominium status requires apartments or units to have a minimum of 500 square feet of living area that is inclusive of separate sleeping, living and kitchen facilities.

Kyle Communications Director Samantha Armbruster said council will likely hold the next public hearing on the ordinance to rezone the property during its Nov. 4 meeting.



1850 W. RM 150

During the Oct. 20 meeting, council also approved a rezoning request for 2.67 acres at the western corner of the intersection at West RM 150 and North Old Stagecoach Road in Kyle.

The rezoning will bring the land from agricultural to retail services status, and information from the city states it is north of undeveloped land zoned for retail services and northeast of undeveloped land zoned for agricultural purposes.

City documents state the owner, Covey Fund I LP of Austin, is only seeking partial rezoning of the overall 9.99 acres it owns at that location. The rest remains zoned for agriculture.

By definition, the retail services zoning designation will allow for a variety of consumable products and goods commonly purchased and used by consumers in their homes.

As with the land on Creekside Trail, Armbruster said, council will likely hold the next public hearing on the ordinance to rezone the property during its Nov. 4 meeting.



The Spooner Tract

Council voted during its Sept. 15 meeting to change the zoning of nearly 180 acres of undeveloped land from agriculture to 20.3 acres of commercial, 128.5 acres of single-family residential and 30.3 acres of residential townhouse zoning.

The land runs along East Post Road and is located just north of the Quail Ridge community and west of land in San Marcos' extraterritorial jurisdiction.

The rezoning application shows the owner of the land to be the John H. Spooner Revocable Trust.

City information states the single-family zoning will allow for detached residences capped at 5.5 houses per buildable acre, and the townhouse zoning will allow for structures with four or more dwelling units, each capped at 10 units per buildable acre.

The second reading of that ordinance was supposed to take place during the Oct. 20 meeting but was postponed. Armbruster said council could take that item up again Nov. 4.

There is not yet a timeline for any development project on The Spooner Tract, nor has the city named any potential developers for the land.
