We are entering an exciting time at the City of Highland Village. We are very close to buildout with only 78 acres of undeveloped land and we need to make sure every decision is considered in terms of economic viability and enhanced quality of life for our residents. Cities use many different types of planning documents to help guide those decisions. It is time to update Highland Village’s planning documents. The City has partnered with McAdams Company to carry out this project. It is important as we go through this project that you are involved, understand the process, and provide your input.


On February 22 the City held an open house to gather feedback from the community. We recorded a description of the requested input for each of the plans that were set up at different stations. The information provided at the open house has been replicated in the "Provide Input" section below giving you the opportunity to provide your input online at a time that is convenient for you. The input period will remain open until April 13.

    Thank you to everyone who provided input on the Our Village, Our Vision surveys. Between the all day open house, the Community Coffee and the online engagement opportunities we received over 300 responses! McAdams has compiled all responses in the Community Input Summary of Findings document. Your input, along with the input from property owners, businesses, Council, and Board & Commission members, will be used to develop the long-term planning documents. You will have an opportunity to review those documents before they are finalized. You can view the Community Input Summary of Findings here.

    The City of Highland Village contracted with McAdams to update the City’s planning documents. The City is approaching buildout, and with only 78 acres of undeveloped land, the plans will help make sure the City maximizes the economic benefit from their development and further enhances the quality of life of the residents. The process to update the plans will take approximately 12 months and will include multiple opportunities for public input from residents and the business community, both in-person and online.

    We are working with McAdams on five different, and significant, plans.

    1. The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan will include an assessment of existing parks, programs, operations, finance and level of service to identify gaps, create guiding principles and create on-going, short-term/long-term objectives based on local values.
    2. The Trail System Master Plan will include an analysis of existing trails, on-street bicycle network, ADA compliance, cross section and intersection design guidance and wayfinding to develop a ten-year action plan to meet community goals.
    3. The Village Connection: FM 407 Corridor Plan is a ten-year action plan designed to promote development or redevelopment, create a sense of place, implement multi-modal transportation options and connect to existing trails.
    4. The Opportunity Areas Plan will include an analysis of the remaining undeveloped land to identify goals for development options based on market conditions and the fiscal impact to the City, land use and zoning amendments and updates to the comprehensive land use plan to develop implementation strategies.
    5. The Thoroughfare Master Plan will include an analysis of traffic trends, a review of the City's ordinances and polices, traffic demand modeling and develop recommendations.
