Leander Circling The Wagons Around Liberty Hill

Liberty Hill is, or was, a sleepy little town north of Austin. I say 'was' because it is less than 10 minutes from the 183A toll road that allows toll road drivers to get most Austin destinations in well under 45 minutes!  Just south, bordering Liberty Hill is Leander, bursting at the seams with growth, AND the battle to begins

In December, 2015, the City of Liberty Hill was notified by the City of Leander that Leander is terminating a boundary agreement between the two cities that protects adjoining boundaries.   The termination goes into effect in May 2016. 

The City of Liberty Hill sees this as an attempt to circle Liberty Hill by annexing property around Liberty Hill, thus limiting Liberty Hill’s ability to grow.

Does this end the spirit of cooperation between these two cities? Not so, according to Leander City Manager, Kent Cagle: “The idea that we’re trying to encircle Liberty Hill is not possible, nor I would say, even desirable,”

One thing is certain, that we have not seen an end to the growth of Austin’s northern corridor and the annexation of land between Leander, Liberty Hill and the City of Georgetown.
