Flower Mound Town Council members on Monday night learned that local developer Reginald Rembert withdrew his request for a waiver to the one-year waiting period required to file a new zoning application, after denial of a rezoning request by the Town Council, for his controversial Serenity residential development on High Road.

Town Planner Chuck Russell said that the property is zoned Agricultural, requiring a minimum of two-acre residential lots. He added that a future development application and plan has not been filed with the town to date.

Additional agenda items requesting council direction for town staff included: street lighting styles, location and funding sources; Thoroughfare Plan Amendments for Silveron and Morriss Road; and, approval of a consulting agreement with the Cultural Planning Group (CPG), a virtual company based in Pennsylvania, were all approved.

Council members suggested that a joint work session be held with the Transportation Committee on the fate of the Morriss Road widening project to give residents another chance for input. A date and location for the meeting will be determined.

Town resident and public speaker Patsy Mazur, again requested an investigation– previously requested during the Dec. 18, 2017 meeting– of town communications related to The Point development.

During Mazur’s request, she reported that Development Services Executive Director Doug Powell has been terminated and questioned if that was” just a coincidence” related to The Point communications.

Town Manager Jimmy Stathatos responded to The Cross Timbers Gazette that Powell is still a current Town of Flower Mound employee.
