At an April 11 city council meeting, the New Braunfels City Council unanimously approved a request to add more than 140 acres to the existing Lone Oak Farm utility district.

The property that was added to the MUD is located in Guadalupe County, within the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction. The land is located on the north side of FM 758, approximately 500 feet west of the highway intersection. 123, according to municipal documents.

A MUD is a political subdivision that provides developers with alternative ways to fund infrastructure. It is managed by a board of directors and uses tax revenue and royalties from properties inside the MUD to pay off debt associated with infrastructure development costs.

The Lone Oak Farm MUD was first approved in 2019 and will comprise a total of 481.08 acres once the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality approves the addition of the acreage.

Water service at MUD is provided by Crystal Clear Special Utility District, and sewer service is provided by Seguin Utilities.
