By consent agenda and unanimous vote, the city of Austin’s Zoning and Platting Commission approved a resubdivision of the Steiner Ranch Lake Club, 12300 River Bend, Austin, on June 18 that paves the way for residential development on one of two lots comprising 5.22 total acres. The property falls within Austin’s extraterritorial jurisdiction, an area whose residents don’t pay city taxes but also aren’t serviced by the city.
Behind the action is the Steiner Ranch Master Association along with Steiner Ranch, Ltd., Taylor Woodrow Communities and 239 Rio Vista, entities that filed the resubdivision application, agenda documents state.
Following months of discussions, the River Place Limited District Board won’t pursue further action to placate non-Limited District residents in regards to the neighborhood amenities including trails and tennis court usage.
