The Brenham Planning and Zoning Commission will meet Monday to look at a rezoning request for nearly 77 acres of land being considered for new housing.
Commissioners will consider rezoning vacant land adjacent to Blue Bell Road, Burleson Street and Highway 36 North. Philip Bargas, on behalf of home developer DR Horton, is looking to rezone the tract from a combination of Residential and Commercial Research and Technology District to a Planned Development District, to develop a single-family home subdivision.
Development standards for the subdivision, coined “Liberty Village”, say it will feature a looped trail system and sports equipment in detention/common areas; a centralized public park with a looped walking path, playground facilities, and a pavilion; and a sidewalk connection to Brenham Elementary School, coordinated with Brenham ISD. The applicant is proposing over 300 single-family homes to be built in three phases.
Staff are recommending approval of the rezoning request.
Also in session Monday, the commission will consider a preliminary plat for 29 acres at the Prairie Lea Cemetery, to allow for expansion of the cemetery. Staff are recommending approval of the preliminary plat request. The final plat will be presented at the commission’s meeting on January 27th.
The commission will meet Monday evening at 5:15 p.m., at Brenham City Hall.
