New Residential Subdivision Proposed in Colleyville
A proposal for a new residential development in Colleyville is in the works!
According to the City of Colleyville’s news release, the subdivision named Greystone Manor has been proposed near the roundabout at McDonwell School Road and Westcoat Drive.
The request to rezone 59.47 acres from agriculture and single-family estate residential to a planned unit development residential district includes 56 lots.
It is expected that the City Council will hold multiple meetings to review and address issues and concerns related to density, traffic, and stormwater management. Public comments, of support or opposition, are welcome and may be shared at the meeting in person.
The first meeting was held on July 19 meeting and the opinion on the new subdivision is divided within the Colleyville community.
During the discussion, council members expressed their worries about the new development’s traffic and drainage. Ben Bryner, the director of community development, informed the council that the developer had not yet carried out a traffic study.
The neighborhood’s decision to block public access to sidewalks that go to Pleasant Run Soccer Complex and Park worried Mayor Pro Tem Kathy Wheat. According to Mayor Wheat, the construction mirror the Oak Alley community, which opened all of its trails and walkways to the public.
Before the meeting, the council received 20 letters opposing the development, one of which was signed by 19 surrounding property owners, and five letters in support of it. Concerns about drainage, increased traffic, the project’s density, and the ability to preserve Colleyville’s unique character were raised during the meeting’s public comment portion.
Mayor Wheat added that the council will try to arrange a meeting with the developer that is open to locals.
A second discussion on the proposed Greystone Manor is expected at the Aug. 2 City Council meeting. The council is anticipated to table the topic on August 2 and revisit it at future special sessions, according to city manager Jerry Ducay. People can also email the city secretary’s office at firstname.lastname@example.org with feedback regarding the project.
