CEDAR HILLS – On May 1, 2018, the Cedar Hills City Council approved a settlement agreement to resolve a lawsuit with developer Cedar Hills Farmland, LLC regarding the development of land located in the city’s commercial zone at approximately 4600 West and Cedar Hills Drive.
Under the terms of the settlement agreement the parties agree in concept to a proposal to develop the property as a single-family planned unit development with up to 80 single family lots, 14,000 square feet of open space, and a 7,000 square foot commercial pad with associated parking.
“We are pleased to have reached a mutually agreeable settlement with the property owner and developer,” stated Mayor Jenney Rees. “We look forward to welcoming a new neighborhood to our city and adding some additional retail space to our commercial zone.”
As part of the agreement the city will consider formal action approving a new zoning district to accommodate the development, a development agreement, and preliminary and final subdivision plats. These items will be on a future agenda for the Planning Commission and City Council.
