Navasota Ball Rolling on Eastside Annexations

Navasota Examiner by Connie Clements

At a Regular Meeting of the Navasota City Council, Monday, May 8, council members approved Resolutions outlining the voluntary annexation process of three properties on Navasota’s east side and setting public hearings for the May 22 city council meeting.

Resolution No. 736-23 pertains to the request by Stanley Kettler and Jeanette Welch for a 1.909-acre tract, Resolution No. 73723 pertains to Jinx M. Lee’s request for a 0.336-acres tract and Resolution No. 738-23 pertains to the request by Grimes Altamira, LLC (Chandler Arden) for a 96.618-acre tract located along SH 90.
According to Development Services Director Lupe Diosdado, city staff have been working with Arden since early 2022 on a plan to provide city services to his potential 400-lot single family residential development. The City’s plan includes drilling one or two water wells, construction of a third city water tower, a ground water storage tank and water treatment plant within the property boundaries.

City Manager Jason Weeks announced that Stylecraft Builders and Reece Homes will be constructing home similar to those in Pecan Lakes Estates.

The annexations, if approved May 22, will extend Navasota’s 1 mile extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) further east and may result in extending the City’s TIRZ (Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone) to help finance infrastructure in that area.
