LEANDER - Leander will be an epicenter of growth during the next decade, according the College Station-based demographic firm Population and Survey Analysts.

Though housing occupancy is expected to surge in Leander during the next ten years, overall growth in school enrollment slowed to 3.1 percent in 2012, compared with 11.1 percent during Leander ISD’s peak in 2005.

Growth in kindergarten enrollment now comprises 7.45 percent of the entire district population — an all-time low in the past six years. Enrollment in LISD will support the construction of four elementary schools, a ninth middle school and two high schools by 2022.

The City of Leander and its extraterritorial jurisdiction represent a combined 47 percent of the projected new housing growth in the district, with 13,310 new housing units out of the 28,235 total expected in the next decade.

According to the report, about 36 percent of new Leander residences will be multifamily units, while the majority will be single-family homes.
