individual or company that contemplates the improvement or development
of land should consider many factors before purchasing land that is
thought to be an ideal location for a project.
If the land
is within the City of Horseshoe Bay corporate limits or 1 mile thereof
within the City's Extraterritorial Jurisdiction, you must find out what
other Subdivision (Horseshoe Bay, Escondido, Summit Rock, etc.) and
Horseshoe Bay Declarant (Horseshoe Bay Resort) development requirements
will affect your project.
For all building projects that
require a permit, your first point of contact is the Architectural
Control Committee (ACC) for the subdivision your property is located in,
for subdivision covenants and restrictions information, and approval of
plan reviews prior to coming to Development Services for a building
Steps to Take
you are going through the City’s application process you should find
that there is a logical sequencing of activities that needs to occur.
This in a very basic sequence is:
Traffic and drainage considerations
Research should also be conducted to determine if there are deed
restrictions or easements that would affect the use of the land you are
considering. For a very detailed discussion of the requirements for
development projects, please see the Horseshoe Bay Development Policy (PDF).
