Zoning Request Change Alert
The rezoning request was approved by the Zoning Committee. The details and a link to the proposal are below.
“3.I. Zoning Change, RE to R-3, 2601 Medina Hwy (Case PZ-2022-13) An ordinance to change the zoning from RE Residential Estate District to R3 Multi-family Residential District on a 36.28 acre parcel being a portion of the Nathaniel Hoyt Survey No. 145, Abstract No. 178, being a portion of 168.47 acres according to the Special Warranty Deed with Vendor's Lien filed in Document No. 21-04751, Official Public Records of Kerr County, Texas; and more commonly known as 2601 Medina Hwy, Kerrville, TX 78028.”
Details of the proposal can be found at the link below under “Agenda and Packet”:
The area in question is a portion of the 225.76 acres of land just south of the Riverhill subdivision that was originally proposed for Vintage Heights. Since that development was abandoned the 55 acres adjacent to Riverhill was sold and 168.47 remains owned by the Vintage Heights developer, Medina River Estates. The majority is zoned RE with a smaller portion on the southern end R-2. The change requested is for 36.28 of the remaining property (that abuts the 55 acres) to be rezoned to R3 (Multifamily residential).
Note: The re-designation to R-3 allows the development of multiple apartments or condominiums on a single lot of up to three floors The documents submitted call for up to 366 multi‐family units for the property.
The first step in this process is on April 7th. After hearing the presentation along with the recommendation of the Kerrville Planning & Development (which we assume will be in favor) and individual citizens, the Planning & Zoning Commission will vote on one of three actions. Accept, Reject or neither, if a tie vote. From there the request moves to City Council for review and action at two meetings.
We will continue to investigate options and will provide additional information as this proceeds. Please keep up with the email blasts and this website for continuing information and plans.
