Fate of 84 acres in Steiner is up to the community, Survey launched to gauge interest

By CASSIE MCKEE, Four Points News

Steiner Ranch Neighborhood Association Chairman Brian Thompto is urging the Steiner Ranch community to make its voice heard regarding the future of an 84-acre property known as MU-14 that Thompto describes as the “front door” of Steiner Ranch.

An online survey has been launched at http://steinerranchna.org/mu14/ to get community feedback about this land.

Currently, the tract located off of RM 620 and Quinlan Park Road is privately owned by a number of landowners. Taylor Morrison was one of the owners but recently sold its share to the other owners, Thompto said. Under the current plan, Taylor Morrison would still be contracted to build 150 two- to three-bedroom duplexes on the tract. Thompto said many Steiner Ranch residents oppose that plan.

The future of an 84-acre property off of RM 620 known as MU-14 is at stake. It is shown in this map in the tan color. Currently duplexes are proposed for the site but the Steiner Ranch Neighborhood Association would like to see if the community is interested in purchasing it and asks that residents to go to www.steinerranchna.org/mu14 to voice their support or opposition regarding the land.
