Like the heat in Texas, residential development in and around Forney is definitely on the rise.
The Forney Planning and Zoning Commission will meet on Wednesday evening and on their official agenda is approval consideration for one residential development within the city limits, and two residential developments located within Forney’s ETCJ (Extra Territorial Jurisdiction).
The P&Z will consider approval for the final plat for Eagle Ridge Phase 3. Located within the Forney city limits, Eagle Ridge Phase 3 consists of 10.60 acres of land located south of Ridgecrest Road and east of Wolf Drive.
These thirty-eight (38) residential homes are located almost directly across from the Diamond Creek duck pond on Ridgecrest Road.
The average lot size required is 7,500 square feet and the minimum lot size required is 6,820 square feet. A preliminary plat for the property was approved on October 21, 2008, and development has since been phased.
P&Z Commissioner’s will also consider approval for the preliminary plat for Forney Ranch. This residential subdivision will be located west of Clements Drive and south of Lake Ray Hubbard Drive in the city’s ETJ.
Forney Ranch is a residential development that will consist of 545 residential lots, 11 open space lots, and 120.2 acres of land.
The Forney Ranch phase map shows that two phases are planned for this development and that the property will have four points of access; two from Clements Drive and two from Lake Ray Hubbard Drive.
And lastly, the P&Z Commission will consider approval for a preliminary plat for Windmill Farms Phase 4A & 4B, a residential subdivision located south of Falcon Way, between Irongate Boulevard and Windmill Farms Boulevard, again in the city’s ETJ.
Windmill Farms 4a & 4B will consists of 440 total lots and 126.819 acres of land. The 440 total lots include 432 residential lots, 1 commercial lot, and 7 common HOA lots.
The city of Forney has a development agreement with Windmill Farms and part of the agreement states that residential lots have minimum square footage of 6,000 square feet, and all the Phase 4A & 4B proposed lots meet this requirement.
On Thursday night, July 6, 2017 the City Council will convene. All three of the above residential developments are listed within the Council's Consent Agenda and are expected to receive council approval.
