Richland Hills continues to welcome new businesses, the latest being Buyers Barricades. Their large attractive building and landscaped grounds are a great asset to our city. With their use of an exterior of Austin Stone, they are continuing a similar look in newer buildings already established in this way, creating a more unified “town square” effect.
Baker Boulevard (Highway 10) is the city’s main street, and the use of a common, but different, look in our businesses makes the city stand out in a positive way. However, the city needs a rule that prohibits a business on Baker Boulevard from painting a building in any garish color.
Ours is a desirable small city in which to raise a family or to retire. It is a safe area for walking and biking; has many large lots, some containing horses. We have our own station for the Trinity Railway Express. People from other cities drive here to commute to their jobs. More businesses are locating on Baker Boulevard, with others on Handley-Ederville Road. In minutes, residents can drive to shopping, recreation, doctors’ offices and hospitals and still reside in a rural-like setting.
