What are Small Area Plans?

A Small Area Plan gives residents, business, property owners, and the City a shared “road map” for actions and investments to enhance one particular area within Lewisville. Anyone who has a stake in the area can be involved in creating the Small Area Plan, so everyone’s ideas and concerns can be considered in deciding how to make the area a vital, successful, and desirable place to live and work now and in the future. 

Creating these plans is consistent with the “Thriving Neighborhoods” Big Move in the Lewisville 2025 vision plan, and can impact several other Big Moves in that plan.

Why is the City Creating Small Area Plans?

This is a proven way to establish a vision or goal for a specific part of a city, and a coordinated approach to achieve it that is supported by area stakeholders. The plans will focus in more detail than is possible during a citywide planning process.

Small Area Plans can be used to address areas with unique challenges and opportunities, and can help create or enhance a distinctive identity for those areas. This makes those areas more desirable places to live or operate a business, expanding quality of life and preserving economic viability.

The planning process will get stakeholders involved and engaged. The resulting plans will serve as the basis for city programs, incentives, regulations, and special districts that are important in the targeted area but are not needed citywide.

Action Steps may include:

  • Branding and identity
    • Gateways & signage
    • Amenities
    • Marketing
  • Development regulation changes
    • Rezoning, zoning overlays, form-based codes
    • Design guidelines or requirements

  • Financial incentives
    • For development/redevelopment
    • For business attraction & support
    • For clean-up, repair
  • Parks, trails, recreation, open space
  • Infrastructure investments
    • Water, sewer & stormwater
    • Streets, streetscape, parking

  • Code compliance
  • Community capacity-building
    • New area support groups
    • Leadership training

  • Events and programming
