The resort, which will feature a multi-story hotel, will likely be visible to some nearby residents. Some may also be able to hear activities at the resort, but that’s also the case with the Dell Diamond, especially during baseball season. The City and Kalahari will work with the neighborhoods to address potential impacts during the land use planning process.
Adjacent neighbors will be able to see some of the facilities on the site and may be able to hear park activities. To the extent possible, sight and sound concerns will be considered during the multi-stage zoning change approval process.
There are many factors that go into the valuation of residential property, including national, state and regional economic conditions, as well as neighboring development. According to its website, the Williamson Central Appraisal District compares a home to similar homes that have sold recently and determines the value accordingly. In other words, it is valued based on the sales of similar properties. Other considerations include age, size, condition and quality of construction of the home.
No. Zoning would allow for 351 acres of development for single-family detached homes. At four units per acre, this is 1,404 units. Traffic impacts from residents living in these homes would create more peak hour traffic congestion. Residential use of the property would also have more impacts on local schools and likely use more water. Updated Dec. 9, 2016
As part of the City’s stormwater management permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, we implement various best management practices to ensure development does not negatively impact waterways. We have standards, guidelines, inspections and enforcement for projects under construction to ensure the construction process does not impact waterways. In short, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) forces TCEQ to regulate the City to protect water quality. The City also has a strong Illicit Discharge ordinance that regulates ongoing activities to address threats and impacts to the system.
The regional trail is designed to accommodate Round Rock and surrounding communities. Kalahari Resort will be another destination on the regional trail. Residents and visitors will be able to continue to use the trail to commute to work, visit a local business, park or friends, and/or for exercise and recreational purposes.
