The Highland Village City Council on July 22 unanimously approved the preliminary plat for a new single-family subdivision.
The proposed development is 18.708 acres along and east of Sellmeyer Lane south of Wichita Forest.
The developer and owner, Jaramco Investments, Inc., proposes 39 residential lots, six common areas, a ten-foot wide extension of City Trail and sidewalks through the subdivision. The development will maintain its current zoning of SF-10. The preliminary plat also includes a second access into the proposed subdivision with the dedication of a public street over land presently owned by the city.
The preliminary plat and tree plan was presented to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board and the Planning & Zoning Commission and approved unanimously by both entities. Council and staff will continue discussion with the property owner and developer to address final platting, drainage, safe access and roadway systems.
Also at the meeting, council approved a resolution establishing Independent Bank as the city’s depository. Independent Bank met all the criteria to serve as the city’s bank depository. Independent Bank has been in Highland Village for 16 years.
