P&Z approves new development plan for District of Highland Village
From staff reports
At a special meeting on Thursday, the Highland Village Planning & Zoning Commission unanimously approved a new development plan for the District of Highland Village located at the northwest corner of FM 407 and Briarhill Boulevard.
The approved plan moves the development from a retail and townhome development to a mixed-use development with retail, office and multi-family components. P&X approved with the recommendation that the council either require the applicant to remove the residential parking garages on the southeast corner of FM 407 and Briarhill Boulevard or provide alternative designs or relocation within the development, provide more detail regarding the renovation of the existing pool and clubhouse and the parking canopies be constructed of metal instead of wood.
The city council will consider the zoning amendment at their next meeting Nov. 29.
“The new development plan is in direct concert with the city council’s stated goal of seeking ‘superior development’ for the entire site that will complement our community,” stated the city’s planning consultant Dan Sefko of Freese and Nichols.
On Oct. 16 a public presentation was made of the current drafts of the site plans and related drawings for the proposed development and zoning amendment. Questions from the Planning and Zoning Commission and the public in attendance were addressed. Both the Oct. 16 meeting and the Nov. 15 meeting, including the presentations, can be viewed on-demand on HVTV on the city website.
