The Georgetown Independent School District closed on its acquisition of 135 acres, situated near D.B. Wood and Cedar Breaks Park Roads in Georgetown, TX. The land, located in the southwest portion of the school district, will allow for future development of an elementary, middle and high school site to accommodate growth in the north Austin suburb.
According to the Georgetown ISD’s “board briefs,” the area is one that board members and the superintendent have been watching for a while, especially taking into account the Wolf Ranch and Water Oak housing developments. If growth continues, the board indicated new schools would be needed in that area within the next five to 10 years.
The land was purchased with help from a $150.5 million bond package, passed by voters in November 2018. The district would need taxpayer-approved future bonds to secure funds to build schools on the property.
