The Flower Mound Town Council had a full agenda on Monday night for its only meeting in March.

A temporary Farmer’s Market has been a high-priority item to bridge the timeline until a permanent location is completed in The River Walk development.

A site on town-owned property, most likely the parking lot at Town Hall, required the council’s approval to amend a zoning land-use regulation. Currently, farmer’s markets are allowed only on land zoned agricultural, but the town property is zoned Retail-2.

The council’s unanimous approval for the zoning amendment allows town staff to move forward in the process of selecting a market manager and to be ready to welcome local farmers’ products this summer.

Council also approved the Resolution creating a Charter Review Commission and an action timeline to put any Town Charter amendments on the Nov. 8 election ballot.

In addition, council members approved the rezoning request to amend the Lakeside Ranch Business Park’s Planned Development District standards to add “mini-warehouse” land use upon approval of a Special Use Permit.  Advantage Self Storage wants to build a storage facility at the northeast corner of Gerault Road and Lakeside Parkway.
