During this week’s meeting, Katy City Council approved a plan to subdivide the TXI property located on the east side the city limits.
The new plat divides the property into five reserves to allow for the segregation of company business units on the existing developed site.
Four of the reserves are privately owned, while one is owned by the Harris County Right-of-Way Department. The portion owned by the county has an existing storm sewer under the tract that provides drainage for the area along Katyland Drive.
The zoning of the property, which consists of 30.33 acres, was unaffected by the subdivision.
The proposed subdivision was reviewed and approved by City Engineer David Leyendecker and the Katy Planning and Zoning Commission prior to being brought to the council table.
During the deliberation, Councilman Bill Lawton asked City Attorney Art Pertile about the “positives and negatives” of proposal.
Pertile said he saw no downside, and the planned subdivision met all existing city codes.
“If they meet the requirements of our ordinances, we have to approve it,” Pertile said. “I don’t see any negatives.”
A representative for the applicant said he did not know of any proposed sale of the property “at this time.”
City council approved the subdivision request on a unanimous vote.
