The Killeen Independent School District is requesting the Killeen City Council rezone 70 acres of land for a satellite transportation facility.

Killeen ISD is requesting that the City Council rezone the property on Trimmier Road, near Charles Patterson Elementary School, from an agricultural district to a suburban residential single-family district.

According to city documents, the property, currently vacant and undeveloped, has been zoned as an agricultural district since it was annexed in March 2004. Killeen ISD owns the property.

Earlier this year, Killeen ISD officials said it’s believed that the facility will improve efficiency in transporting students to and from school.

The satellite transportation facility has a tentative price tag of $3.8 million and is expected to be completed in 2015. According to city documents, access to the property would be from Trimmier Road, which staff projects will cause a moderate increase in traffic as a result of the rezoning.

The planning and zoning commission heard the school district’s request at its March 3 meeting and recommended the council approve the rezoning. Minutes from the planning and zoning meeting stated that city staff notified four surrounding property owners within a 200-foot boundary of the property and received no responses.

The council also is set to discuss residential and downtown parking at its 5 p.m. workshop meeting today in the Utility Collections conference room, 210 W. Avenue C.
