ORDINANCE 2018-05 - AN ORDINANCE REZONING PROPERTY LOCATED AT 9714 SPLIT LOG ROAD FROM SI-2 (SERVICE INSTITUTION - EDUCATIONAL) TO R-2 (SUBURBAN RESIDENTIAL)
Williamson County Schools (WCS) requests consideration of a rezoning proposal for the property located at 9714 Split Log Road, which is situated along the eastern edge of the City, north of Split Log Road. The requested change is from the SI-2 zoning district to the R-2 zoning district.
The subject property includes a total of 12.78 acres, and is the former Foster homestead that was purchased by WCS in 2017 for construction of the Jordan Elementary School and the future construction of a middle school on the northern portion of the property. WCS has determined that the tract, located east of the tributary to Owl Creek is surplus property and not needed for school development. With the rezoning, WCS will be able to sell the property to another party, presumably to recoup some of its original land acquisition costs.
Presently, there is one house located on the remnant tract. According to the Property Assessor, the house includes an area of 3,224 square feet and was originally constructed in 1965. There are also several accessory structures on the property. As the property is currently owned by the school district, no development plan has been proposed to determine the potential number of developable lots.
In April 2017, the Board of Commissioners approved Ordinance 2017-07, which changed the zoning on approximately 83.51 acres from R-2 to SI-2. This 12.78-acre remnant tract was included as part of the original rezoning request. Construction continues on the new Jordan Elementary School, which is located on the remaining 70.7 +/- acre portion of the property.
The request was approved by the Board of Commissioners on first reading on March 12th. The required community meeting will be conducted on March 27th in the Annex Room beginning at 6:00 p.m. The public hearing is scheduled for April 9th, second and final reading scheduled for April 23, 2018. The meetings for the public hearing and the second and final reading will occur at City Hall in the Commission Chambers, beginning at 7:00 p.m. each evening.
