Family-owned supermarket chain may come to Kyle

By Brittany Anderson

A family-owned supermarket chain may soon make its way to east Kyle. 

During the Jan. 4 meeting, Kyle City Council unanimously voted to approve the first reading of an ordinance from JD’s Supermarket to purchase 102 acres of land at SH-21 and E FM 150 in Kyle.

Representatives with JD’s Supermarket approached the city a year and a half ago to purchase the land to build a shopping center on 17.3 acres of the land. Per the memorandum, the location is a major secondary corridor for vehicular traffic, with IH-35 being the primary corridor. 

JD’s Supermarket has locations throughout the Greater Austin area. President Adam Ahmad said in the memorandum that they strongly feel that with the abundance of existing and proposed residential developments in the area, along with the connectivity of two major roadways, the tract would be a “great opportunity to provide closer, local commercial, retail, grocery and gas for the entire surrounding area.” 

Zoning, subdivision, site development, a conditional use permit and building permits will be followed to develop the site following the land’s annexation. 

A second reading of the ordinance will take place during the Jan. 18 council meeting.
