Three proposed developments did not make it past the last Southlake Planning and Zoning meeting.
Two residential developments and a commercial center were tabled after discussion on Jan. 9.
One residential project would add 63 residential lots on about 41 acres near Shady Oaks Drive and Southlake Boulevard.
Neighbors and Commission members expressed concerns about the project’s impact on traffic on both Shady Oaks Drive, and having an entrance off 1709.
Another concern from neighboring residents was the creation of a walkable trail that would be in proximity of backyards.
Chairman Robert Hudson proposed the developer get more feedback from neighbors.
“The one issue that I hear from the people is they're not being heard, their ideas aren't being heard,” he said.
The applicant proposed to return on the Feb. 6 meeting.
The other housing project, Remington Estates, aims to bring 23 residential lots off Shady Lane just north of State Highway 114.
The property backs right into Grapevine homes to its east.
The minimum lot size is 12,000 square feet, and smaller lots would be placed on the properties east side to match neighboring Grapevine residences.
Neighboring residents shared concerns about increased traffic on the already narrow Shady Lane and drainage.
Representing the project, Curtis Young, said the property will have a detention pond to avoid increasing drainage. He also said the property would not double the amount of traffic.
Commission members had issue with the project’s density.
“I think this is too many houses right there,” Hudson said.
The developers plan to return on the Jan. 23 meeting.
Though there were no neighbors for the last item, Commission members were not satisfied with the Kimball Park project.
The proposed development would bring a hotel, office building and several retail or restaurant options off N. Kimball Avenue just north of SH 114.
A major concern shared by some commission members were the lack of impression from the 175 room Cambria Suites hotel.
While the applicant spoke of it’s high level of finish, ultimately the building’s design left members wanting more.
“The renderings that have been submitted thus far in the packet there's no ‘wow’ there's no sizzle in that steak,” said Vice chairman D. Todd Parish.
The applicant plans to return on the Jan. 23 meeting.
