At the last Rosenberg City Council workshop meeting, council members discussed a proposed planned unit development.

There are just a few stipulations holding the council back from approving the PUD.

So, at Tuesday’s workshop meeting, council members will once again discuss the proposed Bamore Farms PUD.

The development would be located south of U.S. 59 at Cottonwood School and Stella roads, mostly in the city limits.

The property consists of 281 acres and 800 proposed lots.

The developer would like to plat all 50-foot wide lots on this tract, as opposed to the city standard of 60-foot wide lots.

The proposal raised some concerns among council members at the last workshop meeting.

Mayor Bill Benton asked if the PUD could work with 60-foot lots.

“Just because you have bigger lots does not mean the home has more quality,” he told council.

Council member Kevin Raines said he would be in favor of 50-foot lots.

Eventually, council came to the consensus to meet in the middle and have 55-foot lots.

However, there were more pressing matters that council members Jacob Balderas, Steven DeGregorio and Isaac Davila were concerned about.

Balderas pointed out that the detention ponds are exactly where the floodway of the creek is.

“I’m a little unsure because of the flood requirements.”

The developer has since revised the PUD’s master plan to provide for all 55-foot lots, and has provided a letter from the development’s engineer that the project would be designed to drain properly and meet all city and Fort Bend County requirements.

Further, the developer has proposed that all single-family detached homes would have a minimum of three-sides 100% masonry cover on the first floor exclusive of doors and windows. According to city staff, masonry meaning brick, stone, or stucco.

The Zoom teleconference meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m.

Citizens will not be allowed to attend council meetings, but can still ask questions via letters, telephone or email. Email comments to dswint@rosenbergtx.gov. Meetings can be watched live on the city’s YouTube Channel “RosenbergTXGov,” on the city’s website at www.rosenbergtx.gov/tv, and on Comcast Channel 16 for residents within the city limits.
