Cedar Park (Travis County) — The Planning and Zoning Commission rezoned a property that will allow a local sanitation industry business to expand its facilities.
The rezoning will allow for the development of a new 50,000-square-foot manufacturing and warehouse facility.
Located at 1800 Hur Industrial Boulevard in the city’s northwest sector, the project site is 13.65 acres that Satellite Industries owns through the special entity Cedar Park 20 Partners LTD.
The property was rezoned from light industrial zoning to heavy industrial zoning.
Satellite Industries currently operates on about 1.75 acres of the tract, with a small office building and storage of portable toilets, which the company manufactures.

This site is adjacent to Satellite Industries existing facility located at 1713 Hur Industrial Boulevard. It is south of the Brushy Creek Regional Utility Authority Water Treatment Plant.
The previous light industrial zoning designation limited the property to an outdoor storage area to 30% of the gross site area. This rezoning request to heavy industrial zoning increases the allowed area of outdoor storage to 65%.
Outdoor storage at the property will be limited to 25 feet in height within 200 feet of the southeast property boundary with Veteran’s Memorial Park, according to city documents.
In addition, the eastern boundary of the property shared with Veteran’s Memorial Park will have a 30-foot landscaped buffer yard and eight-foot masonry fence constructed at the property line.
Leander based DFD Architects Inc., who specialize in commercial industries, are a part of the project team.
