Frisco City Council on Jan. 4 approved a zoning change to support Hazelwood, a single-family neighborhood focused around dispersed open-space tracts and a floodplain area.

The nearly 158-acre neighborhood on the southeast corner of FM 423 and Rockhill Parkway will include 327 lots for patio homes and townhomes, according to a blueprint submitted to the city. The density is listed as 2.1 units per acre. An amenity center and a 4.4-acre, central swath of open space are included in the plans.


The nearly 64-acre flood plain area was dedicated to the city in the Jan. 4 meeting, and city officials have worked with the applicant, Kimley-Horn, “to develop standards that lend themselves to attracting people, encouraging social interaction and creating community," city documents stated. Development Services Director John Lettelleir said the flood plain could be an extension to the Frisco on the Green Park, which is located to the east of the site.

Mayor Jeff Cheney praised the neighborhood’s incorporation with the upcoming PGA Frisco development and nearby parks, such as Frisco on the Green and Northwest Community parks.

“When this whole part of the city’s going to be built out, it’s going to be known for that, its trail network and open space,” Cheney said.
