New Water Park coming near Avery Ranch. Ranch at Brushy Creek, Silver Oaks, Forest Oak, Mayfield Ranch Area. Will this be good or bad for these neighborhood's as far as price appreciation is concerned?

No construction yet, but that must be what everyone on this end of Williamson County is talking about.

Okay, I'll revamp this one now that it's apparently becoming a reality.

What are everyone's thoughts?

For those in Cedar Park, is this a boon, or a boondoggle?

I'll vote for the 'doggle' option. For many reasons already discussed including nearby homes, traffic jams, water supply concerns, etc.

As I mentioned in the 'worst traffic' thread, I would think there are opportunities farther north, especially on land that doesn't adjoin existing homes(I haven't actually pinpointed the proposed location but it does appear to be pretty close to existing single family homes. It's not like we don't have vast amounts of undeveloped land up here...there's plenty to choose from.) Never mind that there is no Comal or Guadalupe up here...Brushy Creek ain't exactly a river.

Default CP Tax

They keep saying that it'll bring revenue... However- people are not thinking about the FUTURE of their taxes in Cedar Park. They're excited to have their city deemed a 'destination' town- but good luck dealing with the after effect. Have they thought about the crime rate increase, lowered property value, etc... Or only about the money that will only end up in the city's bank account? I thought Austin's trend was to 'go green'... apparently, CP has enough water to go around for all! *where were they during last year's drought?

We were actually digging the idea of landing in Avery Ranch or somewhere in that general vicinity. Now, we'll most likely be looking elsewhere.

I used to live near a water park outside of DC and the traffic on busy days made it impossible for anyone who lived right there. Granted, DC is a much larger city, but still...

I'm live pretty darn close to the location, I think.... I wish they would show the actual map of the 90 acres. I'm not particularly a fan of the water park. I think it will be a good thing financially, but they need to make sure they have a better situation of keeping the traffic from impeding regularly traffic flow as it is in new braunfelds. I'm also concerned about the potential noise. I want to see the real plan.

The park is year-round... Our realtor who lives in CP didn't even know that- How sad that the citizens of CP don't even know what they're getting and how they're truly impacting the neighbors both in and out of their area, only so they can acheive their claim to be a "Destination City"... give me a freaking break!...
It's official- they just released the info that CP officials gave the greenlight for Schlitterbahn to move ahead. Completion date is summer 2012
