The Navasota Planning and Zoning Commission began the new year Jan. 12 with a public hearing and approval of a zoning change request which will add anywhere from 130-147 new homes on Navasota’s west side.
The application was submitted by Crosstrails Development, LLC to change the zoning of 35.13 acres adjacent to Pecan Lakes Estates Phase 2 from A/O: Agriculture/ Open Space District to Pecan Grove Estates PUD (Planned Unit Development).
According to Development Services Director Lupe Diosdado, an ad was placed in the Navasota Examiner, a sign announcing the public hearing was placed on the property and 104 public notice letters were mailed to adjacent property owners within 500 feet of the affected property but as of Jan. 6, he had received no inquiries.
Approximately a dozen residents of Pecan Lakes Estates attended the public hearing during which property owner Maureen Yorek asked questions related to the price point of the homes, the HOA and access into and out of the new subdivision from the existing subdivision.
According to Crosstrails representative Brandon Goodyk, the homes will complement Jim Hassell’s Pecan Lakes Estates with a price range from upper $200,000s to low-mid $300,000s and will be single family dwellings. Goodyk confirmed for Yorek there will be no apartments.
According to the Pecan Grove PUD development standards, the lots will be 6,000 square feet and there will be sidewalks on both sides of the street. Crosstrails has selected Stylecraft Builders, Inc. and Ranger Home Builders to handle the construction.
Estimating that there will most likely be 130 homes, Diosdado said, “That’s going to either increase or decrease depending on how much parkland makes it to the final plat. The first step in the process is changing the zone from Ag to what they’re proposing. If it’s approved, the next step will be the plat which lays out the lots and streets.”
