Longview City Council clears way for apartment complex
Longview, TX — Clearing the way for a planned 80-unit apartment complex, the Longview City Council on Thursday rezoned about six acres on Hawkins Parkway.
The land, which had been zoned to allow general retail, is on the north side of Hawkins Parkway, just west of McCann Road. The apartment complex will have parking lot entrances from both roads. The proposed name of the project is Amberwood Place, and it is being built by Longview Development Associates.
The Planning and Zoning Board recommended the rezoning, to multifamily, be approved, and it passed the council unanimously. No one spoke against the request.
The council also rezoned a quarter-acre tract on Gilmer Road from single family to general retail. The parcel had been annexed into the city as a non-complying tract, and the action brought it into compliance with zoning ordinances, Mayor Jay Dean said.
