WAXAHACHIE

The Waxahachie Planning and Zoning Commission will consider a final plat for the second phase of The Cove subdivision at its Tuesday meeting. The step will contain 94 lots and one open space.

The development is part of the North Grove residential development that will have a total build out of 2,200 lots. It is located south of North Grove Boulevard.

Waxahachie City Council members approved phases three through seven of the project at the Nov. 21, 2016 meeting. The landscape plan for The Cove will also be considered.

One of the developers already building in The Cove is Antares Homes. Homes constructed by Antares start at $279,366 and range from 1,991 to 3,421 square feet.

The commission is also reviewing the preliminary plat for the Buc-ee’s convenience store that will be located at the southwest corner of Interstate Highway 35E and Butcher Road.

City council members approved a 10-year tax-abatement agreement with Buc-ee’s at its June 18 meeting. Under the agreement, the city will return 70 percent of its sales tax, rebate $500,000 in impact fees, and provide assistance up to $500,000 for roads.

Commissioners will consider a final plat for the first two phases of the Pioneer Point subdivision. The development will contain 20 lots. It will be located west of the Richard Road and Farm-to-Market Road 66 intersection.

The planning and zoning commission meeting is at 7 p.m. Tuesday at City Hall in the council chambers. City hall is at 401 S. Rogers Street in downtown Waxahachie.
