Controversial Development Stalled Due to Environmental Concerns

Grove at Shoal Creek developers asked to address land-impact issues, including total size

The Grove at Shoal Creek Planned Unit Development, one of the most controversial master-planned community to come before the city in quite some time, was stalled this week because of environmental concerns, reported the Austin Monitor's Vicky Garza today. The city's Environmental Commission delayed a decision on signing off on the ambitious plan to develop land at 45th Street and Bull Creek Road, Garza reported, asking developer ARG Bull Creek to work with city staff on resolving 10 issues.

Those issues, according to Garza's report, include descreasing total development from 2.4 million square feet to from 2.1 million square.

Garza also noted that the city Parks and Recreation Department last week failed to support the proposal, asking ARG to better address tree protection and parkland size, among other related concerns.
