Mayor contests Parkland zoning idea



At a recent resident's meeting it was proposed that the land behind the new HEB and the adjacent MUD property in Lakeway be rezoned as parkland.



However, on his blog Mayor Joe Bain has pointed out that this option is not available to the City stating:


"I have heard that some folks want to zone both the Stratus property and the MUD property unilaterally to parkland.  This is not possible with current Texas law.  The Stratus property is already zoned as part of an existing "PUD".  Zoning the MUD property without a request from the owner would be considered a "Taking" under Texas law.  The city would be liable to both the current owner and the buyer that has the land under contract."
