Lewisville City Council unanimously adopted the Lewisville 2025 plan in 2014. The plan, which was drafted by city staff after more than a year of public input and professional consultation, details the steps that need to be taken to make Lewisville an inclusive and diverse community. It also outlines plans to foster growth, increase connectivity and to revitalize Old Town Lewisville.
City Manager Donna Barron said at an Oct. 21 City Council workshop that it is time to update the Lewisville 2025 plan and to start looking forward at the city’s path forward to 2035.
“We want to go back out and re-engage with our public and make sure we’re on track—to make sure there aren’t other things that we should be focused on in addition to what’s already laid out for us,” Barron said.
Barron said the city will begin community outreach to gather public input in January. She said residents of Castle Hills will be included in the city’s outreach, as the master-planned community is set to be annexed into Lewisville sometime in 2021.
“Castle Hills is another major issue,” Barron said. “They need to be a part of our 2025 process.”
Staff will give City Council a report on the 2025 update in February and another one on the 2035 by the end of April, she said. Barron said the city aims to adopt the final plan in the summer.
