No need to be testy. I will stand corrected, I am referring specifically to the architectural review board. What I do know is that in the fight to keep the Hidden Canyon from flipping to Multi-Family from Single Family, it came out that 5 of the 9 board members are developers. I'm sure that group will have a say in this development as well, and that is what we should all be afraid of.

The developer that drew up the plans that DO include Sonterra connecting to 281 are dated December 2008. Engineer that drew up the plans is Pape-Dawson engineers. Given the fact that most of the land is commercial or multifamily I doubt KB is involved. All of the tracts of land that connect to any of the surrounding KB communities aren't even residential. There are large tracts of land left as homestead most likely for the Stuebing family.

Sorry, did not intend to appear testy . . . just informative. Also, if you check the website you will find that the ARC is made up of 6 volunteer home owners, not developers.

Just because folks see a project differently does NOT indicate that they are developers, politicians, paid off or anything else. (NOT that you implied that) They just see the project differently. Maybe the 100 acre park was appealing??? Who knows.
Sorry, don't intend to hijack the thread. This subject has already been covered.

Being a volunteer on the ARC doesn't get you a vote...just an opportunity to express your opinion. The developers will have the final say until they sell out their lots.

I don't think that's an accurate listing. One of the member's of that committee/board is the one who gave me the ratio I stated.

I imagine the lack of progress on US-281 expansion north of 1604 is driving the demand for more commercial development at the southern end of the corridor. We can likely credit the 281 toll road opponents for this development going commercial.

I'm all for progress...I just don't want commercial properties so close to residential developments. And the traffic will just get worse, on all surrounding roads with more people moving in!!
The time to leave "a bit of greenspace" was 30 years ago. The whole area has already been damaged. Stone Oak is not a nature preserve. It is a subdivision. Single family, multi-family, home depot, HEB, convenience store, Taco Cabana...no difference in my book.

True, but do they even have any parks at all over there? City stuff that's open to all, not some members-only thing.
