The Council approved the FY 2017-2018 budget with no change to the Town’s tax rate and it remains stable for two decades at 29.5 cents. Reconstruction of Florance Road from FM 407 to Strader Road is underway, still on schedule and anticipated complete by the end of October. Construction is still on schedule, too, with a 7-11 convenience store and Town Hall space on the north side of FM 407. Two professional business centers are underway or soon to begin construction on SH 114. We will soon enjoy an IHOP, another 7-11, and a Popeye’s in Northlake. Northwest ISD plans to build an elementary, middle, high school and sports complex in the approved planned development southwest of FM 407 and Cleveland-Gibbs (Pecan Square.)
A few people have turned to social media (Facebook) to post partial information, I guess some people are disappointed if they are not the center of attention or do not benefit personally. As one of the naysayers expressed, we do not need schools if development is not allowed, then no one could move to Northlake. Touchy subject for some individuals who want schools and other conveniences in Northlake but no other homes. Some would prefer to keep everything the same and prevent landowners and their heirs to do what they want with their property
I would rather we follow the comprehensive land use plan to make Northlake a place our kids will want to call home when they have a choice. If you have a concern or opinion please visit www.town.northlake.tx.us and let me know.
Thanks for your time.
Please keep the victims of Las Vegas in your Prayers.
