Bluffview Development Information

Attention: Bluffview Development has postponed their meeting with Planning & Zoning until February 2nd, 2021. This marks the second delay due to everyone's efforts.

 

The proposed Bluffview Development is currently seeking to modify the area closest to the Southwest Bypass from being zoned Residential (RS) to MF-1 which is medium density multi-family housing. A picture below illustrates. The primary concerns with the development are as follows:

  • Increased traffic through Riverview and River Ridge 3 Neighborhoods

  • Impact to home values

To learn more, read further:

Increased Traffic

Currently, there is a plan to expand Leander Road. This plan shows that all left turns out of River Ridge 2, River Ridge 3, Riverview Estates and Bluffview neighborhoods will have to occur on River Ridge Drive (the main entrance to River Ridge 3). See below.

 

As it stands, the Foxhollow and the southern part of River Down Rd. will see an increase in traffic once the expansion begins and residents are unable to easily exit their respective neighborhoods using their usual preference. With the addition of the Bluffview development, we are concerned about the increased traffic that our neighborhoods road sizes were not designed to handle

The Bluffview neighborhood could have around 150 residences and 250 multi-family units. Currently, those residents will either use our neighborhood to travel east on Leander Rd. or use the SW Bypass to access town.
