Georgetown (Williamson County) — A Round Rock businessman had his stormwater application approved for a proposed RV development at Tuesday’s meeting of the Planning and Zoning Commission.
The 36.38-acre site that is to be known as Georgetown RV is currently undeveloped land located at 2280 CR 248, in the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction.
The property was previously a residential area, with a dormant wooden home and associated structures still on site.

Optimized Engineering, out of Kyle, released a site development permit that showed:
25.47 acres (1,109,476 SF) of impervious cover
296 total RV spaces
Lot one 79 RV spaces
Lot two 104 spaces
Lot three 113 spaces
A 1,026 square-foot clubhouse with outdoor swimming pool
A detention pond
The tree preservation plan proposed the removal of 15 out of 22 trees identified as “protected.” Calculating by trunk inches, the developer is preserving 32% of the protected trees; the required percentage of tree protection by code is 30%.
The site in its current state has a large number of Hackberry, Elm and Oak, as well as some Mesquite, Cedar, Cottonwood, Maple, Pecan and Chinaberry.
Chong Hoon Cho, out of Round Rock, is the owner and developer of the project.
Austin-based Survey Works is on board the project team.
