A Future Transit-Oriented Development in Leander

Return to Home Page
The progress toward establishing a 2,300-acre transit-oriented development (TOD) in Leander, Texas, can be followed by reading certain articles in the Hill Country News. Recently, there was considerable controversy over the question about whether to begin to extend the TOD into the "Old Town" section of Leander. It was apparently not planned to do a makeover in a single step. Instead, the change was initiated by applications for rezoning from two homeowners in Old Town. Links to many relevant articles in the Hill Country News are listed below.
