Immediate Attention VOL Residents

Good Afternoon Village Of Oak Lake Residents:

This letter is to inform you of a request made to Fort Bend County Municipal District No. 41 (the “District”) regarding a new development project in our community.

Nijadhar, LLC (the “Developer”) has proposed to develop a religious center and school on the property shown on the plat below (the “Project”).  The Project may also include additional development on the property which, at this time, has not been specified by the Developer.  The Developer is requesting approval of its plat from the Houston Planning Commission. The Developer has also requested that the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the District provide a letter of no objection regarding the Developer’s engineering plans to tie in to the District’s storm sewer system to serve a proposed cul-de-sac connecting Oak Lake Park Drive (at the current dead end of the intersection shown below) to a planned street running through the Developer’s property all the way to McKaskle Road.

Proposed Through Street

Platting of the Project, which may have an impact on traffic, noise, and activity in your neighborhood, will be before the Houston Planning Commission for consideration on September 2, 2021.
