Magnolia Rezoning Press Release

On Monday, June 12th, the City Council held a public hearing in their capacity as the Planning and Zoning Commission for a request to rezone undeveloped property located between N. Yaupon, Wisteria and Oyster Creek Dr.
In light of the responses at that public hearing, the owner/developer has withdrawn their request to rezone the property. The property will remain zoned at R-1 Single-Family Residential and the owner/developer is examining building single-family homes without any changes to lot sizes or to the property’s zoning.
Therefore, the second public hearing previously scheduled for July 10th is now cancelled.
If you have any questions you may contact our office at (979) 265-2082.

Oakwood Shores Ground Penetrating Survey

GPR Data Inc. will be in Oakwood Shores conducting a Ground Penetrating Radar study, April 26th through May 1st. This study will allow City of Richwood to view voids that exist in the subbase of Oakwood Shores roads. GPR Data needs to make three passes per street. One down each side, and one in the center. This contractor will be using a van with indicator lights, and will be towing instrumentation behind them. Their vehicle will only scan at 3-5 mph so please be courteous, and give them plenty of space to work. This study will provide crucial data for road repairs in Oakwood Shores to be engineered in the future. After data is submitted to Richwood, the results may be viewed on City of Richwood website. Thank you in advance for your help and consideration in this matter.
