Bouldin Creek community disputes proposed zoning changes

January 19th, 2011

Members of the Bouldin Creek community are currently involved in a dispute with developers who want to erect a 96-foot-tall building on an undeveloped lot on Barton Springs Road.

Currently, the community has a neighborhood plan that limits the height of buildings to 60 feet. However, last week the Austin City Council approved the first reading of the landowner’s zoning change application in a 6-1 vote. The property owner wants to change his property zoning from its current commercial services status to a planned unit development (PUD).

The developer and supporting members of the city council state that the zoning changes would improve the area and set high standards for future development in the Bouldin Creek neighborhood. Residents, however, feel that public input has been ignored.
