Applications are available for download or may be picked up in the Economic Development Department, 317 College St., 75050

 


City Hall Civic Center Project

Several years ago City leaders made a commitment to keep City Hall downtown. A new connector building is being planned that will connect the existing City Hall and the Development Center under one roof. Amenities include a “plaza” that will contain a Grand Lawn and Grand Paseo. These areas will allow for green spaces that may be utilized for events and daily outdoor activities so employees, visitors, and the community can enjoy a park-like setting on Main Street. The campus improvements will help provide a cohesiveness not only to the city buildings but to downtown.

 


Unified Development Code 

Staff is consistently reviewing the Unified Development Code, a guide for development within the city, to allow for establishments to open and operate under more inviting categories for Downtown.
