- Did you know there are approximately 900 new households are on the table for construction in Steiner Ranch, with more than 80% being multi-family units?
- Did you know that substantial new commercial development is being entertained for Steiner Ranch in addition to Quinlan Crossing (aka the Randall’s development)?
- Did you know Steiner Ranch is a probable target for annexation by the City of Austin?
This additional development will significantly impact our quality of life, traffic congestion, property values as well as the total population and quality of our schools. Annexation will result in changes to our critical services, rates of taxation and public safety.
In order to protect the interests of Steiner Ranch residents, SRNA needs as many members as possible to provide the necessary critical mass and political clout to have our voice heard as we challenge these new developments.
It’s important to note that the SRNA is not duplicating the efforts of the HOA. The SRNA will work collaboratively with the HOA, but the reality is, the HOA is controlled by the developer doesn’t have the same considerations and concerns as the homeowners in our community.
SRNA is presently unable to support any of the proposed developments until we understand the resulting impact on traffic, schools, property values, existing businesses and our standard of living.
Please sign up now and encourage your neighbors to join. Your membership is crucial to the success of SRNA and the protection of our community.

Our primary objective is to foster one community, with one voice, and to put our community above all else. Our goals are sharply focused on safety and security in and around Steiner Ranch; to be true representation by the people, for the people; and lastly, smart growth in the area.
Registered with the City of Austin, the SRNA is working with the city, notified of all development and proposed policy within the area, and a voice for Steiner Ranch on behalf of everyone within our boundary; home owner and renter alike. There are many such neighborhood associations in communities, working alongside your HOA to build a better home for us all.
