On Feb. 22, Houston City Council approved the annexation of 154.32 acres of land to Harris County Municipal Utility District No. 538, a district that covers areas near Beckendorf and Katy Hockley Cutoff roads.

The MUD is being formed as developers are proposing the currently vacant land be developed as single-family and multifamily residential property, commercial property and detention property.

This tract adds to the existing 395.96 acres within the MUD.

According to the meeting agenda packet, the district has a wastewater collection system, and the additional land will be provided with wastewater treatment and potable water from Harris County MUD No. 495.

The nearest major drainage facility for MUD No. 538 is South Mayde Creek, which flows into Langham Creek and Buffalo Bayou before reaching the Houston Ship Channel.
