HARKER HEIGHTS — Nolanville Hill will soon boast 54 new upscale houses.

The Harker Heights City Council unanimously on Tuesday approved a concept plan and preliminary plat for Beulah Bluff Estates, a nearly 42-acre subdivision in Harker Heights’ extraterritorial jurisdiction.

The development will be located near the intersection of U.S. Highway 190 and Farm-to-Market 2410, between the Nolanville and Belton city limits.

Submitted May 31, 2012, the original concept plan outlined 80 lots on about 75 acres, according to city documents. On June 18, developers revised the concept to consist of 55 lots on 42 acres.

“It went through a couple reviews with the city staff and the Bell County Public Health District because of the use of septic tanks and access requirements from TxDOT,” said Planning and Development Director Fred Morris. “I believe they’re going to build all this at one time.”

The neighborhood will include two rain detention ponds, said developer Jamie Herring.

The homes will average 3,000 square feet and sell for more than $300,000, he said. He picked Nolanville Hill for its prime location.

“It’s right in the middle of Killeen and Temple,” he said. “I think it’s going to be really nice.”
