This area plan is not longer in effect, and has been superseded by the Downtown Master Plan and Downtown Mixed-Use Zoning Districts.
The Southwest Downtown Plan Area has been experiencing significant changes with the growth of Round Rock and the construction of the new Municipal Office Complex. The Planning Department has worked with area residents, businesses and property owners to develop a Plan to guide redevelopment in a way that is sensitive to the Plan Area’s character, scale and traditional development pattern; encouraging growth while preserving the qualities that drew people to locate their homes and businesses there.
The Southwest Downtown Plan presents a coordinated strategy to promote sensitive reinvestment in one of Round Rock’s oldest neighborhoods. This strategy links existing plans already in progress (the Municipal Office Complex and area utility improvements, the Citywide Trails Master Plan and the Tree Protection and Preservation Ordinance) with additional measures to create a comprehensive and consistent redevelopment plan, including 1) a mixed-use zoning ordinance to specify an appropriate range and scale of land uses, 2) a revised parking strategy to take advantage of the area’s large pool of available street parking, and 3) design standards to accommodate increased pedestrian traffic and improve the compatibility of diverse land uses.
The Plan is presented for adoption as an amendment to the General Plan 2000, which provides the legal basis for Round Rock’s development regulations. Subsequent ordinances and development decisions are to be in accordance with guidelines expressed in the General Plan. Goals of the Southwest Downtown Plan will be implemented through the creation of a new mixed-use zoning district and the rezoning of many properties in the Plan Area. The Mixed-Use Zoning District was adopted separately into the Zoning Ordinance, and later some area properties were rezoned to Mixed-Use (MU-1), Public Facilities (PF), or Open Space (OS).
