Summary of Austin City Council Meeting Concerning Development Zoning
by John Williams, PSNA representative
On August 26, 2010, Austin City Council took final action to annex both Indian Hills and Whisper Valley. At the same time it adopted zoning requirements for these developments, and authorized a “Public Improvement District” [PID] to provide funding for infrastructure such as roads, water and wastewater.
PSNA President, Tom West, and John Williams both spoke at the City Council meeting to remind Council of the need for adequate roadway improvements in the area. Commissioner Davis sent a letter.
PSNA has been working for more than two years with Austin City, Travis County, and area developers in an attempt to obtain adequate funding for transportation improvements which occur along with, not long after, the residential and commercial development. We’re pleased to report that the agreements about Whisper Valley and Indian Hills include the following:
** “area-wide agreement” would include interested parties such as developers, municipalities, etc. and might be a phasing agreement, a road district, a PID, or other agreement. It is anticipated that developers would pay into a fund for roadway improvements outside of, but of benefit to, their development.More information about Indian Hills, Whisper Valley and other area developments is available by clicking:
