The Manvel City Council approved the early starts for 20 homes in Bluewater Lakes at the recent City Council Meeting at City Hall.
Bluewater Lakes is a new community featuring new single family homes from $240s to $390s and is located off State Hwy. 6 and Iowa Lake in Manvel.
According to city officials, the city had been observing an eroding detention pond in the middle of the subdivision, which was threatening the street near it.
After hearing how the developer was actively working to correct the problem, Council approved early starts for homes along Camden Knoll Court, Water Glenn Lane and Blue Valley Lane.
The city reported that residents will soon receive notices that the developer won’t seek any more certificates of occupancy until the pond is safely restored to the city standards.
