Southlake City Council brought in the new year by hearing a pair of plans to bring more homes to the city.
Council members reviewed two plans at the Jan. 6 meeting.
Two Homes Near Estes Park
One plan aims to bring two homes on about two acres along East Dove Road north of Texas 114.

The homes would neighbor the existing Estes Park neighborhood. They are so close that the developer and and Estes Park’s Homeowners Association have had talks of making the two homes park of the neighborhood, which would include fees and building standards.
Council members decided to hold voting on this item to the Jan. 20 meeting so the developer and homeowners association could get a written agreement.
“I still believe the HOA is going to be excited to have you build,” Mayor John Terrell told the developer. “Get with those folks and work out an agreement.”
Homes proposed along Southlake Boulevard
A plan to bring 14 homes along Southlake Boulevard needs more work, council members said.
The leadership asked for developers to spend more time with a plan to bring 14 new, low-density homes on the city’s main roadway in between Shady Oak Drive and Ginger Court.
The council had concerns with the plan to have the homes on an aerobic system rather than sewer. The developer said to have a sewer system the development would have to negotiate with two land owners.
Mayor Terrell said city staff will look into safety concerns about the development having left and right turn access from the neighborhood onto a busy 1709. Council members questioned whether the proposed neighborhood should have full access or right-turn only.
The proposal is scheduled to return at the Jan. 20 meeting.
