A proposed zoning change for tiny homes, Summerside subdivision expansion, a new natural gas provider, and a property tax reduction request for a historic home were topics of interest at last night’s City Council meeting.
Zoning Change for Towable Tiny Homes: Lockhart City Council rejected a zoning change request for a 5-acre property on 921 Silent Valley Road that would have accommodated an RV park for towable tiny homes.
Summerside Subdivision Expansion: Council members approved a zoning change request for approximately 100 acres. That expands the Summerside subdivision into the adjacent property to the north, which will include four commercial lots and single-family residential development.
TxDOT Transportation Alternatives Grant: City Council voted to proceed with a grant application to TxDOT which will help fund sidewalk improvements on East San Antonio street (SH-142), north of the courthouse square. The $1.8 million grant will provide improved pedestrian and vehicular traffic safety and realign the travel lanes. The timing of this grant opportunity coincides with plans for construction of other street, drainage, and utility improvements downtown.
West Texas Gas: Council granted West Texas Gas a franchise to provide natural gas to the city’s new industrial park on SH-130 and other unserved areas.
Historic House tax abatement: City Council determined that the owners of a registered Historic Landmark on 515 S. Main Street are eligible for City property tax abatement. One of the owners expressed to Council how expensive it can be to preserve a historic home, and, with Council approval, the tax reduction would help them pay for exterior home improvements.
