The city of Willis, Texas, is considering annexing about 25 acres of land for the Willis Hillside RV Resort, according to the Houston Chronicle

In January 2020, the resort’s owners, Bobcat Concrete Services, Inc.’s Greg and Gina Lusk, said they were considering purchasing the property outside of the city limits to open a 190-site resort. The annexation would provide city water and sewer services to the resort.

“In order to have the RV resort it needs to be able to have services that can handle the capacity,” Gina Lusk previously said. “Right now, it handles one house on septic and that’s not going to be feasible for an RV resort. The facility is there. It flows. It will have to be enlarged or renewed to meet the capacity. We would be sharing in that cost, so we are waiting to one, see if they can do it and two, see what the cost would be to see whether it is feasible to move forward on that particular property.”

Prior to purchasing the land, Bleyl and Associates approached the council that month to discuss the interest of the owners, who sought approval for water and sewer services subject to the results of the feasibility study, the approval of a developmental agreement and the possible annexation.

However, the mayor and council chose not to take any action until the study was completed. The city officials also mentioned at the time that another RV park was already being developed nearby.

“I don’t have a problem providing water and sewer if we have the capacity,” Reed previously said. “…Other than that, I don’t see how the council can make a decision beyond that.”

The council ultimately and unanimously decided to table the item on Tuesday until they had more information related to their questions.
