After nearly a decade of debate, Flower Mound Town Council members unanimously voted to approve a Master Plan Amendment to the Morriss Road Thoroughfare Plan on Monday night.
Council members changed the Major Arterial designation of Morriss Road to an Urban Divided Minor Arterial between FM 3040 north to its terminus at FM 407.
The new designation means that Morriss Road will remain a four-lane road with a median, rather than expanding to six-lanes.
The rezoning of 95-acres, located north of FM 1171 and west of Montalcino Boulevard within the Cross Timbers Conservation Development District, from agricultural uses to a cluster residential development was also approved by council members.
Plans call for 50 single-family residential lots, with a minimum lot size of 32,000-square-feet each and a width of 120-feet. Since the property is located outside the town’s wastewater service area, all proposed residential lots will contain individual septic systems.
Representing owner Dr. Greg Anderson, Randi Rivera of G&A Consultants revealed he will be relocating 26 family members from Utah and the Midwest region to Flower Mound.
Located within the 50-percent open space areas of the Pepper Creek gated development will be an amenity-lot for residential events, a six-foot wide trail throughout, a covered-bridge, waterfalls and enhanced landscaping.
