Bee Cave rezones newly annexed areas

Per Bee Cave ordinances, when the city annexes property into its boundaries, the property is automatically zoned as agriculture. Within 120 days of annexation, the city must rezone the tracts to more permanent classifications including neighborhood service, patio home, public and town center.

Neighborhood Service
This designation includes low-intensity and limited retail activity uses that serve neighborhoods, including small grocery stores, pharmacies, hair salons, dry cleaners, tailors, florists, day care centers, medical/dental and general offices, smaller banks or financial institutions, small restaurants, farmers markets and car washes.


Public
This designation includes government, civic or public uses, such as schools, churches, cemeteries and public buildings.

This designation includes primarily detached single-family homes on compact lots with one side yard that are arranged in a clustered lot pattern with a common open space.
