The Lewisville Economic Development and Planning Department coordinates numerous special projects. These projects are aimed at specific areas of the community or special challenges existing city-wide.
Round Grove Road (FM 3040) Overlay DistrictIn June 2018 the City Council adopted the Southwest Lewisville Small Area Plan. One of the priority action items from that plan was to adopt a design overlay for Road Grove Road.
Public Input:An Open House was held on Thursday, May 16 at New Life Gospel Church, 2488 Meadowglen Dr.
Per the adopted Southwest Lewisville Small Area Plan:
The design guidelines for this corridor should emphasize human scale, consistent identity and character. Design dominated by autos and other vehicles (extensive parking areas in front of buildings, bay doors, etc.) should be discouraged. These design guidelines should be followed by all future development and should be included in the consideration of any Special Use Permits (SUP) for uses in this corridor. The character desired along this corridor should emphasize people, with places to walk and bike safely, outdoor dining, green spaces and similar features. Uses that relate to automobiles and through vehicular traffic are generally less compatible with this future design for Round Grove, though proposals that meet the standards in the corridor’s design overlay should be considered.
The overlay should promote high quality, human-scale development, allow for creative flexibility and reflect sustainability. The design requirements for Round Grove Road should include focus on a consistent landscaped edge, parking extent and orientation, monument signage, bay orientation and building materials. These design requirements should apply to all proposals for rezoning and Special Use Permit.
