City to consider denser housing at Delaware Springs
November 14, 2012, 3:00 pm by James Walker
Pat Riddell is directing the development effort at Delaware Springs because his brother-in-law Billy Joe Fox, who own the Fox Real Estate company, is ill, and wants to be able to count the city-owned Delaware Springs Golf Course as part of the easement for the 23 houses he wants to build.
Riddell wants to build the houses, 10 of which would have golf course fairway frontage, on quarter-acre lots, but LCRA has strict rules regarding density of housing development and wants the lots to be no smaller than one acre each.
LCRA’s primary concern is that the more densely packed the development is in the area near Delaware Creek the more pollutants end up in the creek and ultimately in Lake Travis, which is the primary source of drinking and household water for much of Central Texas.
