In a reflection of the holiday spirit, the Flower Mound Planning and Zoning Commission recommended approval by the Town Council all the items on Monday night’s agenda.

Commissioners unanimously passed Faith Lutheran Church’s request for a replat of eight acres east of Morriss Road, north of Valley Ridge Boulevard. This was the church’s sixth attempt to sell the property– including a zoning change– from residential to non-residential– granted in July.

The replat will feature three lots– the church addition on Lot 1, the proposed 1.5-acre Highland Pointe Animal Hospital on the second lot, with the remainder acreage slated for a future building with a use to be determined.

“The project has been delayed six times and we want to sell the land to add to our daycare space and support our ministries in 25 states and five countries,” said Larry Patterson, president of the church congregation.

Commissioners also unanimously recommended approval for a Special Use Permit (SUP) for an indoor amusement and recreation gym for young children– ages two- to six-years-old.

Jungle Castle will feature 2,125-square-feet of climbing structures, a soft-structure area,  space for birthday parties for up to 15 children, arts and crafts, plus a parental observation area. The facility is located in Founders Square at 1901 Long Prairie Road, Suite 200.

The next P&Z meeting will be held on Jan. 13, 2020.
