The Waxahachie City Council will revisit a pair of development projects during Monday night’s semi-monthly regular meeting.
The council will resume a public hearing on a planned development amendment for a 10.4-acre property, to be known as Phase II of The Mark on Conquest, located at Conquest Boulevard and U.S. Highway 287 adjacent to Waxahachie High School.
Councilmembers tabled it on July 20 after city planning director Shon Brooks noted that a number of plan features didn’t meet the city zoning ordinance and representatives from The Mark argued that their plan is consistent with other developments of theirs in the city.
The first phase is currently open and consists of six buildings. The new phase would consist of nine buildings with 188 total units and an amenity center.
Also continued to Monday’s meeting was a request for a detailed site plan review for the proposed Dove Hollow subdivision, located adjacent to and south of Grove Creek Road. The item was tabled at the council’s July 6 meeting and continued again on July 20.
A third continuation, for a zoning change from single-family to a multi-family planned development at the southeast corner of Parks School House Road and East Main Street to be known as Gala at Waxahachie, is expected to be continued again by request.
Other items on the council’s agenda include a bid award for pavement replacement on Northgate Drive to J&K Excavation; professional engineering design services with Kimley-Horn Associates, Inc, for the reconstruction of Monticello Drive between Pensacola Avenue and Cumberland Road; an ordinance approving the football field usage fee at Penn Park; a variance for a beer and wine retailers off-premise permit for the Old English Merchant’s Parlour at 109 N. Rogers St.; and an ordinance approving an amended Order of Election to be held Nov. 3.
Consent agenda items include the approval of minutes from previous meetings and a request by Tony Rieper of The Breadhouse at 108 E. Franklin for funding assistance for repairs.
The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber at City Hall, 401 S. Rogers.
