Navasota is one step closer to having 31 new small, single-family homes, with Council’s OK of an ordinance to change the Dove Crossing Zoning.
Lupe Diostato, the city’s community development director, says the city staff’s been working with both the property’s owner and proposed buyer, Black Rock Builders, who want to build single-family residences there. Due to the lot sizes, Diostato says, he told them their best route would be through a Planned Unit Development.
Realtor Josh Eisenhouer then reported the area has remained vacant since it was zoned for duplexes in 2003. And despite his best efforts for the last four years to build duplexes, he claims most of the demand is for single-family homes.
Everyone on Council was supportive of allowing the construction of the 1,000 to 1,400 square foot homes, including Councilman Jeff Horn, who said he’d heard for years that one of the reasons for many local teachers living outside the city is a lack of appropriate housing.
Black Rock Builders’ next move, Diostato tells Navasota News, is to develop a site plan for Council to consider at a future date.
And when it does, we’ll let you know about it, right here on Navasota News.
