Cedar Park Council to mull subdivision development guidelines


Citizens of Cedar Park will be able to participate in public hearing on proposed changes to ordinances regarding subdivisions and site developments at the July 26 City Council meeting.

The changes would impact the development of new Cedar Park subdivisions by controlling lot layout, right-of-way dedication and easements, according to the city’s Development Services Assistant Director Amy Link. The changes would also be applicable within the city’s Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ), affecting developments that are outside the Cedar Park city limits but within its police and fire coverage jurisdictions. 

Changes to site development regulations, or site improvements proposed on a tract of land, would include building location, drive aisles, driveway location, parking, drainage facilities and utilities. Site development regulations currently apply to development of land within the city limits as well as the ETJ. 

The city’s Planning and Zoning Commission has already voted to recommend approval of the amendments as proposed.

The council will also consider a resolution that would change the rules governing council meetings and add language restricting council members from disparaging other council members during council meetings as well as in public and on social media. 

The council will meet July 26 at 6 p.m. at 450 Cypress Creek Road, Bldg. 4.
