Georgetown (Williamson County) — City Council approved on first reading a local railroad equipment supplier’s rezoning request for an industrial development, at their Tuesday meeting.
Loram Technologies, Inc. is requesting to rezone 24.3 acres from residential single family (RS) zoning district to industrial (IN) zoning.
The undeveloped site is near the intersection of Austin Avenue and Cooperative Way in the southern portion of the city.
Gregory Grissom with Loram Technologies is requesting the rezoning of the property, Loram Tract, to facilitate the development of an industrial use business, along with office use.
Industrial zoning calls for a 10-foot side and rear setback, a maximum impervious cover of 85% and a maximum building height of 60-feet.
Nick Dubose with Halff Associates represented the project to the council.
The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended the project at their Aug. 17 meeting.
City Council is expected to hold a second reading at their Sept. 28 meeting.
