Village of San Leanna – General Information
THE VILLAGE OF SAN LEANNA was incorporated in 1970 and is located west of IH35, east of Manchaca and on the southern edge of Austin. San Leanna straddles FM 1626, covering approximately 254 acres, with about 217 homes located within the Village limits. San Leanna is governed by a Board of Aldermen, comprised of a Mayor and five Council members, elected by Village citizens. The Council meets on the third Thursday of every month (except December), and all residents are encouraged to attend. San Leanna has its own well system which produces the municipal water supply, providing water to residents from two sources – ground water pumped from the Barton Springs segment of the Edwards Aquifer and surface water purchased from the City of Austin.
