The future site of Elementary School #36, 5501 Azura Way, is seen Wednesday in southwest Killeen.

Killeen Independent School District has officially started construction on Elementary School No. 36, with a permit for the school’s construction appearing in this week’s Killeen city permit report. The project is valued at $16.72 million and will be constructed by Bartlett Cocke General Contractors. The new school will be located at 5501 Azura Way.

Other Permits

The city issued a total of 225 permits last week, according to the weekly permit report.

Ten of the new permits issued were for the construction of new single-family residences. Contractor D.R. Horton will build four of the new houses; Carothers Builders will construct three of the new homes; and Casa Bonita, Stylecraft Builders and Saratoga Homes will each build one new house.

The new homes were given a valuation of $0 in accordance with Texas House Bill 852, which states that cities can no longer ask for or report project values for residential construction permits when determining permit values.

Per the bill, a city “may not require the disclosure of information related to the value of or cost of constructing or improving a residential dwelling as a condition of obtaining a building permit except as required by the Federal Emergency Management Agency for participation in the National Flood Insurance Program.”

Permit officials issued 64 permits over the last week in Harker Heights worth a total of $1.11 million.

There were three permits issued for the construction of new single-family residences. Contractor D.R. Horton will build all three of the new residences. One house will be built on Dante Court, another will be built on Cortona Street and the third will be built on Torino Street.

The city has issued permits worth a total value of $22.41 million so far this year.
