The question is how many young professionals, as to what has been proposed by the developer, want to live in a suburb? Empty nesters can be better envisioned, since they may have family living nearby or retired and want to downsize and/or stay in Flower Mound. The only problem that I foresee is that the current landowners and master developer will want to sell off sections to the highest bidder, which may want to build ordinary multi-family housing units and not the trendy, high-end loft apartments as what the developer is pitching to the town. Once zoning is changed to mixed use, up to 70 percent of the land use can be residential and the town cannot stop a developer from building multi-family housing or it is considered discrimination. The only way that a town can enforce the type of housing is by a development agreement that the residential plan will be age- or deed-restricted--55 years and older.
It's a scary thing for our Flower Mound schools, since there are no new schools other than the two 9th grade centers on the books. Even with a declining enrollment at the elementary level, that can change quickly, as new families with young children continue to move to Flower Mound. And we have quite a few new housing developments that are being built as I type.
