City staff: Developer did enough to win approval for new Killeen subdivision | Local news

Killeen officials said they have reached a suitable agreement with a developer who wanted to circumvent the city’s architectural and design standards in the construction of hundreds of homes along South Fort Hood Street.

“The applicant originally requested to have minor setback requirements for approximately 386 lots in two zoning districts,” Ed Revell, the city’s executive director of development services, told council members Tuesday. “What the developer has done is reduce the number of lots for which they are requesting setbacks from 386 to 246 lots and the number of zoning districts from two to one.”
