League City will consider rezoning roughly 55 acres of land from commercial mixed use to residential at its May 14 meeting.

The vote will come more than a month after League City City Council held the first reading on the item April 9.

The gist

A piece of land near Challenger Stadium near West Old Nasa Road and West Nasa Boulevard could be rezoned to accommodate a developers request to build more than 200 single-family homes on the spot, according to May 14 agenda documents posted to the city's website.

However, some city officials at the April 9 meeting voiced concern about rezoning the area, as they took issue with the lack of commercial space the city already has, as previously reported by Community Impact.

Others, including some residents, took the opposite side. They said the area hadn’t seen interest in years.

On April 9, officials held the first reading for the item, which failed to pass after a divided council voted 4-4, according to city documents. The Planning and Zoning Commission in a meeting March 18 also failed to recommend passing the motion in a 4-4 vote.

What else?

City Council will also consider an ordinance that will allow limited fireworks on News Year’s Day and the Fourth of July, according to agenda documents.

Stay tuned

League City City Council will meet at 6 p.m. May 14 at 200 W. Walker St., according to city documents.
