In addition to approving a controversial committee responsible for reviewing books, League City City Council addressed other noteworthy business Feb. 28.

City Council voted unanimously to approve rezoning about 18.5 acres of land from general commercial to residential to make way for a development of 30 townhomes. The land is located along the south and east sides of Twin Oaks Boulevard.

Today, the 18.5 acres include recreational open space, a marina with a parking lot and a commercial boat storage facility, according to League City documents.

Under the Marina Del Sol Planned Unit Development slated for the land, the recreational open space will remain but be reconfigured for more efficient parking. The marina will remain unchanged as well as there are about 45 people who live on their boats in the marina, the documents read.

The existing commercial boat storage facility will be demolished to make room for a gated residential area of 30 townhomes, and the existing parking lot will be demolished and redeveloped with one single-family home, according to the documents.

League City City Council on Feb. 28 also unanimously approved an $8.4 million deal between the city and the Gulf Coast Water Authority for the Thomas Mackey Water Treatment Plant expansion.

Public Works Director Jody Hooks said the money will fund the infrastructure improvements to the plant that provide the additional 3 million gallons of surface water capacity the city recently acquired.
