Developers Rosewood Property Co. and KFM Engineering & Design requested a public hearing for a later date during a Jan. 4 Plano Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. Commissioners approved this request unanimously.
The public hearing relieves the developing companies from having to obtain application signatures for the adjustment. This is a difficult task with large number of property owners within the development's 156.3-acre plot, the request said.
The public hearing will be paired with a request to modify the zoning of the urban mixed uses of the land located at the southwest corner of Plano Parkway and Alma Drive. Developers would like to change the zoning of the undeveloped western portion of the property, a spokesperson for the two companies said. This would allow for the developer to redistribute some of the planned uses for the land into the undeveloped portion of the property. The request would also include adjustments to proposed heights and modifications for office spaces, he said.
The public hearing and request for zoning adjustment will be heard by the planning and zoning commission at a later date. The approval of the public hearing does not show support or a lack of support for the zoning petition, city documents said.
The long-term construction of the Heritage Creekside development includes a mix of single-family and multifamily housing, restaurants, stores and office buildings. Started in 2015, Heritage Creekside had built out roughly half of its 156-acre property in 2019.
