ABOUT US

Elite Smiles of Pflugerville is a locally owned, private dental practice operated by Dr. Jordan Tucker. Our policies are not guided by a board of directors and we do not have corporate quotas to meet. Instead, our simple measure of success is your satisfaction. We believe that dental health is an important component of overall health and wellness. We see a wide variety of patients, some of whom struggle with dental anxiety. Although Dr. Tucker specializes in full-mouth rehabilitation, implant dentistry and cosmetic

services, he enjoys all aspects of general practice dentistry, meeting new patients in the community and building lasting relationships. Come see us if you appreciate an individualized approach at dental health care. At Elite Smiles, we work closely with each patient to develop personalized treatment plans for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Don’t be surprised if Dr. Tucker even gives you his personal mobile phone number for the highest level of responsiveness to patient needs.

TRANSPORTATIONUPDATES

COMPILED BY MEGAN CARDONA & AMY DENNEY

City ocials are making progress on building out the vision for a new major arterial roadway that oers drivers another north-south route in Round Rock. Kenney Fort Boulevard has been a part of the city’s transportation plans since the 1990s. It is envisioned to be a new six-lane roadway running parallel to A.W. Grimes Boulevard and Red Bud Lane and will initially be built between Old Settlers Boulevard and SH 45 N. The city’s long-term plan is to extend the road north to University Boulevard in the next decade, said Gary Hudder, director of the transportation department in Round Rock. Eventually the road will extend to Westinghouse Road as demand arises. In June, Hudder said the city will seek bids to construct the section that will extend the existing portion of the road south of Forest Creek Drive and connect to SH 45 N. “A.W. Grimes [Boulevard] is incredibly overloaded during rush hour. Red Bud [Lane] gets incred- ibly overloaded,” he said. “Having a new arterial … [is] huge for the community.” He said the goal is to start construc- tion in the fall, and work will last 18 months. Because the project will cross undeveloped land, construc- tion will be easier than other more complex segments of the road, such as near Joe DiMaggio Boulevard. Round Rock City Council also approved in April issuing $30 million RoundRock chips awayat newnorth- south roadway

Major trac pattern changes began May 5 to allow crews to begin work on the intersection of FM 1825/Pecan Street at FM 685/Dessau Road in Pugerville. Drivers can expect several lane closures, including southbound FM 685 and on Pecan. Drivers needing a detour to southbound Dessau may use Immanuel Road. The purpose of the project is to add

a displaced left turn to

Hutto City Council amended an ordinance that would modify the eligibility criteria for school zones. The amendment, approved May 6, takes out the requirement for sidewalks, marked crosswalks and a crossing guard to be present at pedestrian crossings. Council rst discussed the criteria March 18 to address adding a school zone on Limmer Loop near Cotton- wood Creek Elementary School. With the new eligibility, a school zone could be placed on Limmer Loop, where the speed limit is 50 mph.

growing business. “This is a good location for a lot of reasons for us,” Kim Cook said. “There is such good highway access, and that was good [for distribution] and for our employees.” Plans for the new company were recently approved by the Pugerville Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. “We welcome the headquarters and expanded distribution center for Exaco to the One Thirty Business Park,” said Amy Madison, executive director of the Pugerville Commu- nity Development Corp., in a press release.

A family-owned company will build its new oces, showroom and distribution center in Pugerville. A groundbreaking took place May 27 for Exaco, an importer and distributor of European greenhouses and gardening products.

NewHutto community to feature nearly 1,000newhomes

Inc. development manager, said company ocials are working with Hutto and Pugerville ISDs to nalize the school district boundary changes. Both school districts have already given the development rm letters of intent, and the formal documentation was expected to go through in May. Tiemann said the boundary exchange should be completed by summer before the 2021-22 school year starts. Lakeside MUD 9 will oer 998 larger home options, and plans for the MUD will include 45 acres dedicated for parkland and a 20-acre lot for a future elementary school site, which the Tiemann group will donate to HISD. During the May 6 City Council meeting, Tiemann said the company wanted to start construction as soon as possible.

NEWHOMES ON THE HORIZON A developer plans to build a new residential community called Lakeside in Hutto. Here are the features: 998 homes From 1,700-4,000 square feet Priced at $350,000-$750,000 Larger lot sizes at 45, 55 or 70 feet wide 45 acres for parkland 20 acres for future elementary school

A new neighborhood in Hutto is slated to have nearly 1,000 homes and feature larger lot sizes. Following Hutto City Coun- cil’s May 6 approval to annex 456.75 acres of land to create Lakeside Municipal Utility District No. 9, school district boundary lines still need to be nalized. The new neighborhood is planned near the Williamson County and Travis County line, east of where Rowe Lane cur- rently ends. The purpose of the annexation agreement, which swaps a comparable-sized parcel of Hutto land with the city of Pugerville in its extraterritorial jurisdiction, was for a Hutto ISD and Pugerville ISD boundary exchange to make the entire community part of HISD.

California-based developer Mark IV Capital is proposing the city’s rst mixed-use development. The District would comprise 1 million square feet on 65.5 acres of land. The developer has agreed to: build 1 MILLION SQUARE FEET over the next 20 years invest $200 MILLION The city has agreed to: invest $12.56 MILLION in public infrastructure such as roads

mixed-use development to meet the needs of future growth. Three months later, the chamber and Mark IV Capital announced the plans for The District, an answer to the need for mixed-use development projects. Round Rock Senior Planner Clyde von Rosenberg said the city’s comprehensive plan, which council adopted in June 2020, designated the property south of SH 45 N as a future mixed-use project. Because the comprehensive plan helps guide zoning decisions, when Mark IV Capital expressed interest in the site, it was easy for the city to determine that The District would be a good t for that space, he said. “It kind of went along with what we always had in mind for that area,” von Rosenberg said. The District could feature over 900 residential units, a hotel and over 200,000 square feet of retail, includ- ing a designated space for a grocery store, according to a 2018 project brochure by Mark IV Capital. Having restaurants, retail and entertainment in one place would give residents another option within Round Rock to eat and shop, Wise- man said. City Council approved the devel- opment agreement Feb. 14, 2019, with Mark IV Capital. The agreement states the developer would build at least 1 million square feet over the next 20 years and invest a minimum of $200 million. The city is expected to invest a maximum of $12.56 million in public infrastructure such as roads, according to the agreement. Scotti Woolery-Price, Round Rock Chamber vice president of marketing and operations, said Mark IV Capital is expected to release site plans and more project information in June. The developer has submitted site plans to the city but has not announced a construction start date.

The development would have oce, retail, residential and hospitality uses. (Rendering courtesy city of Round Rock)

hotels, oces, retail stores and restaurants, Wiseman said. Round Rock has traditionally been a conventional, suburban, single-family community; the new development would mark the next chapter in the city’s growth, he said. As companies move to Central Texas, The District would also double as a selling point for businesses seeking a mixed-use development for their employees. “That’s what their employees are looking for,” Wiseman said. “A place where they can live, work and play all in the same place; they don’t neces- sarily need to have a long commute in the morning and at night; they can live right around the corner from where they work.” In August 2017, the Round Rock Chamber received the results of a market study and action plan for the city. The report found the city needed more high-end oce space and

Nearly four years after it was announced in November 2017, the city of Round Rock’s rst live-work- play mixed-use development, The District, will be recommended for rezoning to City Council on June 10. In May, the Round Rock Planning and Zoning Commission approved a motion to recommend converting the 65.5-acre plot of land into a planned unit development, or PUD. The unde- veloped site is south of SH 45 N near Greenlawn Boulevard and is zoned as a C-1 general commercial lot. The property was previously owned by Dell. About six years ago it came on the market, and the Califor- nia-based developer Mark IV Capital bought it, said Brad Wiseman, Round Rock planning and development services director. The PUD rezoning would allow for Mark IV Capital to build a devel- opment with multifamily housing,
