Homeowners living near Heritage Hill, Skyline Estates or on Lovers Lane in Forney may find specific interest in tonight’s Planning and Zoning Meeting.
A Public Hearing will be held to again consider approval of re-zoning for a residential development that consist of 69.08 acres of land that is currently zoned within the SF-15 Single-Family District (66.19 acres) and the Agricultural District (2.89 acres).
The property is currently vacant and undeveloped. There are no current driveway connections to the property.
The property is bordered by residential to the west (Skyline Estates), north (Heritage Hill) and east (Heritage Hill). The property surrounds a residential lot at 300 W. U.S. Highway 80 and vacant property is located to the southeast.
The property owner previously made a rezoning request for SF-8 Single-Family residential as the base district. The Planning and Zoning Commission recommended denial of that request on August 3, 2017. The recommendation was not appealed to City Council. A second rezoning request, including 15,000 square foot lots and a commercial lot, was withdrawn prior to Planning and Zoning Commission consideration on March 1, 2018.
The current concept plan/preliminary plat shows three connections to Lovers Lane and one connection to Heritage Hill Drive. There is no direct connection to the U.S. Highway 80 service road. TxDOT did not have any major review comments since the property does not directly connect to TxDOT right-of-way.
The meetings of the Forney Planning and Zoning Commission are freely open to the public. Tonight’s meeting will be held at Forney City Hall and is scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm.
