Had heard there was a huge subdivision with smaller lots going in off 144 and CR 2008. It was first discussed in a December 2021 County Commissioner meeting and then approved in February 2022. I called up my commissioner Dwayne Johnson to ask some questions, like how many houses (ie, how many people to expect will live there), will there be a road from the subdivision that goes directly to 144 or will everyone be trying to get onto 144 from 2008 (or going the other way past Fossil Rim to 67), would there be a stoplight put in if the traffic was bad, or would CR 2008 be expanded to 4 lanes?) The plat is below, as well as what appears to be terms of an HOA, with a board. Mr Johnson also told me that the county would look into asking people on the road to sell part of their land if the road becomes crowded, there is no road that goes directly from the subdivision to 144, and it would be up to Texas State Highways to put in a light (of course, this would no doubt be after a lengthy survey to determine if it is needed, anyone else remember how long it took to get a stoplight on 67 by 144, despite some bad automobile accidents? As a side note, apparently none of the houses there will be able to have the Water District provide the pipes but instead will be using the lower part of the Trinity River for wells.
Incidentally, and shoutout to Michelle Reynolds, Somervell County Clerk, who alerted me to a link to Online Real Estate and other public records which can be accessed via link rather than having to come in and sit down in the Clerk's office in the back at a computer to view. Look on her page for Online Real Records - Public Access.
The papers below show who owns the property, and terms of the HOA, as well as the plats showing the lots.
