LMUD Property

Lakeway City Council hosted a work session with Legend Communities on Nov. 7 to discuss future development between the Oaks at Lakeway and Lohmans Crossing Road.

Legend Communities holds an option to purchase 60 acres in this area from Lakeway Municipal Utility District.

Earlier in 2018, the developer requested a zoning change which Lakeway Zoning and Planning Commission voted not to recommend to Lakeway City Council based on concerns about higher density and increased traffic.

Several months later and some trips to the drawing board and Legend has reimagined the project as smaller and less dense.

Legend representative Bill Hayes told City Council that the vision for the project features intimate traditional architecture.

At the meeting, Lakeway City Councilmembers communicated their desire for a project that is a better fit for Lakeway that would include:

  • Improved road connectivity in the form of arterial roadways that would relieve traffic congestion on RM 620.
  • Public gathering space
  • More green space

Hayes said it would take about 30 days to put together a high-level proposal specific to the property and 60-90 days to determine zoning and other details.
