A handful of neighborhoods voted to disannex from Austin city limits in Travis County’s Saturday, May 4 election.

Half of the six neighborhoods that considered disannexation — meaning they will no longer receive select services like fire and police department access — voted to separate from Austin: Lost Creek, River Place outparcels, and Blue Goose Road.

These areas voted to leave the city, which will result in a change of city services, fees, and taxes.

The biggest of the three at 738 acres, Lost Creek residents voted to disannex by 91%. River Place received only one vote total, voting in favor of disannexing 212 acres. Blue Goose Road, 28 acres, voted to disannex by 100% with just three votes.

Those areas will likely see a change in property taxes and will now receive police and fire protection from Travis County.

The other three neighborhoods voted against disannexation. South Austin’s Lennar at Malone voted 98% to stay incorporated and the other two neighborhoods on the ballot — the Mooreland addition in south Austin and the Wildhorse/Webb Tract in northeast Austin — received zero votes.
