Flower Mound Action Alert. Important Planning and Zoning Meeting UPDATE

NOTE: The agenda is available for the P & Z Public Hearing Monday night. If you wish to speak about the Waste Water Collection Facility, you may do so when it comes up on the agenda.

Monday, December 14th @ 6:00 Planning & Zoning will be reviewing Zoning for the Centralized Collection Facility.

LDR 04-09
Centralized Natural Gas Production Facility

Public Hearing to consider an amendment to the Land Development Regulations (LDR 04-09), by amending Section 98-2 (Definitions), Sections 98-952 (Use Classifications), and 98-273 (Agricultural District Specific Uses), to provide for a Centralized Natural Gas Production Facility definition, use regulations, and special use conditions.

Currently, Flower Mound does not have a zoning that includes this industrial type of activity. (Not even in our Industrial Zones). The intent is to create a Special Use Permit (SUP) to 1) Create a definition 2) Create a use classification 3) Allow the Special Use to be permitted on Agricultural zone land. This would include regulations and special use conditions.

Planning and Zoning will help define the criteria for this type of zoning. Once they have completed this, they will pass on their recommendations to Town Council.

Having the zoning is one step closer to allowing it into our community.

Our position is that the Planning and Zoning along with the Town should table this until the EPA & TCEQ come out with their report and recommendations before moving forward on any review of our ordinances.
