Residential development is continuing west of Conroe with the development of 393 acres near Old Highway 105 and FM 2854.
The Conroe City Council approved the creation of Municipal Utility District No. 183 during its regular meeting Thursday.
While the development does not have a name, it is being developed by McComb Realty, Ltd and will include 1,580 single family lots. According to Director of Community Development Nancy Mikeska the project will include 5.2 acres for commercial development but no multifamily.
The average price of homes will be $220,000 to $260,000, Mikeska said, with an anticipated start date of late 2021.
In separate action, the council approved the voluntary annexation of MUD 183 along with the voluntary annexation of Forest Creek off FM 830 and Mackenzie Creek Section 3 off Loop 336.
Forest Creek spans about 60 acres and currently includes about 87 homes. Developer Steamboat Development Company is planning an additional 162 homes in the subdivision. Average home price is $350,000 and there is no commercial or multifamily planned.
Mikeska said the reason for the annexation is part of the development is already within the city’s boundaries.
“It is difficult to have part of it out of the city and part of it in the city,” Mikeska said.
Mackenzie Creek Section 3 includes about 22 acres and is being developed by Academy Development with builder Legend Homes. The section will include about 122 home with no commercial tracts or multifamily development.
The average home cost will be $180,000 to $250,000 with an anticipated start date of 2021.
