BREAKING LUMBERTON IS GROWING: The Lumberton Muniple Utility District board of Directors announces an agreement with Brampton Essential LP owner of a 3200 acre tract of land located off of FM421.
Brampton (the developer) has announced plans for multi phase residential and commercial area with open spaces and green belt areas that will provide a unique setting for Lumberton’s residents and community. Roger Fussel with LMUD says, “this will be a several year project in several different phases, and said if he had to compare it to something based of the information he has, it will be much like the Woodlands area.” He also added that the homes will be much like the ones we’ve seen being built in Lumberton lately. The location is West of the Lumberton City park and will be on both North and South sides of FM 421. And about a 50% increase in population.
With that size increase Lumberton ISD better be prepared and get a plan in place, Schools are already undersized for current enrollment.
