What we reported: Fulshear has grown about 270 percent over five years, according to U.S. Census data. Prompted by the growth, the city is reviewing and updating all city ordinances, including those for development. Additional measures to manage development include renegotiating developer agreements so the city can issue bonds to fund infrastructure development and designing the city’s first strategic plan for economic development, Mayor Aaron Groff said.
The latest: The ordinance review began in December and will last up to 18 months, Assistant City Manager Brant Gary said. The review will incorporate data from the city’s livability study and parks and mobility plans, Gary said. Identifying unclear information in development codes and procedures is a priority. Fulshear’s economic development plan, which should be completed in July, will help guide development. Updating the city’s comprehensive plan will follow.
