New Housing Development Approved
The Argyle Town Council recently voted unanimously to approve The Oaks Addition, a 107-lot residential subdivision to be constructed on 39.89 acres at the east end of Cook Street south of the high school.
The development will contain approximately eight acres of open space, representing 22 percent of the overall land area within the project.
Lot sizes within The Oaks will range from 7,500 square feet to 24,000 square feet with an average lot size of approximately 10,000 square feet.
The developer, James R. Harris Partners, L.L.C. of Fort Worth, will spend the next few months preparing the final plat and construction plans for the infrastructure within the development, including streets, drainage, water and sanitary sewer facilities, according to Richard Luedke, Director of Community Services.
Infrastructure construction is expected this summer with lots ready for new home construction in the fall.
The developer will use custom homebuilders, including some builders from the Argyle area, to construct the new homes in the development, said Luedke.
District Committees to Present Recommendations
Board committees have been meeting throughout the school year to discuss ideas for the district and will present their recommendations to the AISD school board on April 15.
According to a news release, the areas of discussion will include technology, facilities, communication and rewards and recognition.
