Flower Mound officials discussing timetable for Lakeside DFW hearings

Town development officials have scheduled the Lakeside DFW zoning application for a March 20 meeting of the Development Review Committee (DRC) and are discussing a timetable for public hearings that could start in April.

Lakeside DFW is a proposed $1 billion mixed-use development in south Flower Mound on 150-acres overlooking Lake Grapevine comprised of shops, restaurants, single-family homes, apartments, townhomes, and a hotel.

On March 13, the Lakeside DFW Development Team submitted a revised re-zoning application to the Town of Flower Mound.

The changes to the application were made after receiving comments from the Town’s staff over the last few weeks.

“We are excited about the DRC meeting,” said Richard Myers, managing director of Realty Capital. “It’s an important first step toward a public hearing.”

The date was set after a three-hour March 7 meeting at which Doug Powell, Executive Director of Development Services, and the town’s development staff provided preliminary comments on the application and discussed the details and timing of how the project might move forward.

During the discussions, Powell requested that Lakeside DFW Development Team propose a schedule.

The following proposed schedule was submitted to the town by the Lakeside DFW officials on March 9:

March 20*          Flower Mound DRC Meeting at 2 pm (firm date)
March 26             P&Z Work Session for Zoning and Master Plan Application
April 19                City Council Work Session
April 23                P&Z to vote on Zoning and Master Plan Application
May 7                    1st Reading of Zoning and Master Plan Application at City Council
May 21                  2nd Reading of Zoning and Master Plan Application at City Council

The March 20 meeting is the only firm date set at this time. Others dates, beginning with the March 26 P&Z Work Session, are proposed dates and have not yet been approved by town officials.

On March 20, the DRC will provide the Lakeside DFW Development Team with technical comments on the application. The DRC is comprised of staff members from various development-related departments, such as engineering and the fire department.
