Referring to Flower Mound’s significant accomplishments in 2014, without question, it is the economic vitality that our town is experiencing; new employers moving to town, new business and restaurants opening, and more are on the way!
The expanded tax base gave the council the opportunity to lower property tax rates for all residents while continuing to provide exceptional services that we all expect.
As for hopes for the new year, we will continue what has already begun, including further progress at both the Riverwalk & Lakeside DFW, as well as breaking ground for our first hotel.
Additionally we will continue our efforts to assure Flower Mound delivers our residents a quality of life not available elsewhere in the metroplex by investing in our parks and drawing attention to drug use in our community so that we can become a healthier community.
