Colleyville City Council unanimously approved a special-use permit Nov. 5 for Joe Hudson’s Collision Center, located at 6804 Colleyville Blvd., Colleyville. In a separate item a resolution was also unanimously approved for the city to enter into an economic development incentive agreement for up to $35,000 with Joe Hudson’s Collision Center.
The building previously operated as Lone Star Collision, but since ownership of the business transferred to a new owner the building will be upgraded and the name will change.
Assistant City Manager Mark Wood said the applicant plans to invest more than $130,000 in improvements to the building, and the city has contributed the $35,000 to offset some of these costs. The building will be repainted to complement the existing red brick. The garage will be painted an earth tone to match the other colors and will have new gates installed, the roof will be painted a chocolate brown, and there will be a proposed new sign and new landscaping, according to city documents.
“It’s part of our strategy … to see what we can do to work with the property owners to try to enhance these properties [along SH 26],” Wood said. “Especially as [SH] 26 is reconstructed, the city is investing … to really improve that roadway and the visual aspect of that. … That’s what we’re doing in this case.”
