Undeveloped League City

A barricade stands at the end of West Bay Area Boulevard as the Magnolia Creek Subdivision gives way to undeveloped land in League City.


Three large tracts of old ranch land in southwestern League City, which add up to about 4,500 acres, could soon fill with residential and commercial developments.

Great! More paving of the prairie to make a buck!

City, be sure to have them pay drainage impact fees and issue no more MUD bonds or add to existing bonds.
Valerie please report the date they plan to vote on this, think it will be of great interest.

"Now that the economy has taken a turn for the better, the plans have re-emerged."
Refreshing to read that in print......

Anyway....a set of 10 plus year old plans would not have the benefit of the knowledge gained from Harvey's flooding.
Were the plans updated before latest submission.approval?
Do the plans, well...plan...for worst case rather than best case, something that far too often our local industries, for example, have not done, ignoring past events?

Before I had my home built, I spent many months designing and planning it (am neither an architect nor speedy.....). When I sought a builder, I was told it was overbuilt. That I didn't need the upgrade wood and specs.
One of the best decisions I ever made was to ignore them, and build for what could happen rather than for the minimum expected.......

Just a suggestion for the GCDN: Whenever the main point of an article is geographical in nature, or when location is important to the story, please include a map in addition to a verbal description. In fact, for some folks like myself, a map is always more useful than a verbal description.

Drainage impact fees? No MUD bonds? Re-evaluating drainage of the site and surrounding areas? Great ideas. I don't have confidence these will happen.

Please make sure you build the roads to handle more traffic. Traffic in the League City, Dickinson area is terrible and developers want to add more. SMH[sad]

Don't be stupid and allow a TIRZ up there. They're going to build anyhow. No reason to give money away.

Great News - I would also like to state as you raise the standards and the fees the consumer buying pays the bill - added to the price - I recently had a business ready to move to League City - the 80 % masonry law passed in 2016 - the retrofit of interior sprinklers - both the seller and the buyer lost today because of this new law - be careful about chasing away businesses - sad deal - calder road lost business today
