Bee Cave homeowners say no more renters

  • Text size: + -

Stephen England is an Englishman who's found his home in Bee Cave.

"It is very open and warming," England said.

At least it was ten years ago, when he moved in. Now the Uplands Homeowners Association that England is a member of, doesn't want more newcomers who are renters.

"Our concern as a home association is that there's a balancing act when you develop small Bee Cave to as big as Bee Cave will become," England said.

It's becoming very different. Golf courses in Bee Cave could in the future boast views of the Tuscany Apartments. That is, if the CCNG Development company's proposal to build 300 luxury rental units goes through.

"If we end up with a community that is more than half temporary, or half transient, however you want to call someone who rents versus someone who buys, it will damage the soul of the city," England said.

He and other homeowners have taken their fight to the city.

"There's public hearings in front of the planning commission and in front of council before a decision will be made," Felix Benavides of the City of Bee Cave said.

That decision is scheduled to come down next month.
