Thompson Realty. The exclusive development has 2,600 feet of frontage on Lake Austin.
Four Points residents and the Steiner Ranch Neighborhood Association attended the hearing. They wanted the city to account for traffic, safety and services.
“We have poor emergency egress options from Steiner. And our infrastructure for roads and schools are overloaded already,” said SRNA Chairman Brian Thompto, in an earlier report with Four Points New.
But the McCormick Ranch plan was approved as the zoning commission determined that it did not have a legal ability to deny the permit, Thompto said.
SRNA was also able to speak briefly with one of the developers after the meeting and they were open to taking a look at some of the specific safety concerns related to the entrances along Quinlan Park Rd. We will work with residents to also follow up with the county regarding other concerns related to increased traffic along Quinlan.
For those not familiar with the legal basis for the commissions decision, the Steiner Ranch Development Agreement was signed between the city in 2001 and specifies specific rights for developers in the Steiner Ranch peninsula. Even though we are near the end of development under the agreement, we are not completely done, there are two apartment complexes already approved and a pending duplex complex proposed for the corner of RM 620 and Quinlan Park Rd.
We will need your support to work through issues related to the final developments being planned – you can also get involved by attending the upcoming CAMPO traffic meeting and staying in tune w/ developments via SRNA.
