PETITION AGAINST ZONING MAP AMENDMENT to zone 11.62 acres out of the Isaac Donagan Survey, Abstract No. 178, to the Local Commercial (C-1) zoning district and the Scenic/Natural Gateway Overlay District, and 8.64 acres out of the Isaac Donagan Survey, Abstract No. 178, to the Office (OF) zoning district, upon annexation, for the property generally located at 3701 W. SH 29 (2020-2-ANX) 

(WATER OAK AT SAN GABRIEL HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION, INC.)

The undersigned homeowners (the “Homeowners”), of Water Oak at San Gabriel Homeowners Association, Inc. (the “Water Oak Community”), hereby petition the City Council of the City of Georgetown, Texas, to vote against the action to approve the zoning map amendment for the tract of land located at 3701 W. Hwy 29, Georgetown, Texas referred to as "The Preserve".

At the most recent Planning and Zoning meeting Mr. Vic Gopani (3701 SH29 LLC) requested the City of Georgetown re-zone a tract of land adjacent to the Water Oak community along Hwy 29 to our east. 

The residents of Water Oak are in complete agreement with the decision made on April 21st by the Planning and Zoning Commission to recommend against the re-zoning request.  In making their 4-3 decision to recommend against re-zoning, the majority of commissioners noted the development plan itself was suitable and acceptable, but the lack of a PUD accompanying the development plan left the Water Oak community vulnerable to a change in the development plan itself should the current developer default, change his mind or otherwise not follow through on the current, published concept plan.

While we support the current development plan itself and feel it’s a win-win for both the developer and the Water Oak community, we do want to ensure any approval to move forward with re-zoning requires the current concept plan to be developed.  Removing any possibility the current developer or any future developer could modify the development plan after re-zoning approval is critical to this community.  As a result, the Water Oak community respectfully requests the City Council to vote against the re-zoning request at this time until it can be accompanied by a PUD to tie the current concept plan to the approval to re-zone.

Additionally, the Water Oak community also asks the City Council to ensure the issue of connecting Cross Mountain Trail to the new development be fully vetted with the city planners and community with a mutually agreed upon solution put in place before the approval is granted.
