How the surrounding cities are one big family

During Southlake’s May Executive Forum, attendees got a chance to hear updates on what is happening in their cities from five mayors.

Mayors John Terrell – Southlake, Laura Wheat – Westlake, David Kelly – Colleyville, Connie White – Trophy Club and Pat McGrail – Keller all took to a panel to discuss updates within each city, mainly focusing on developments.

Mayor Terrell discussed the rapid commercial developments and retailers popping up throughout the city, including Park Village, Kimball Oaks and Trader Joe's.

The developer Richmond Group plans to open up Kimball Oaks in the fall and will remove the wall that sits along the intersection.

Additionally, commercial development is currently ruling Colleyville, emphasized Mayor Kelly.

The city recently announced a well of new dining and shopping options, including Whole Foods Market and a new shopping center known as “Colleyville Downs.”

Keller Mayor McGrail explained that the city is also in the middle of major commercial developments, including new tenants occupying Keller Town Center.

For instance, the grand opening of Legacy Studios, Champion Kick and Chick-fil-A recently took place.

Additionally, Southlake’s iconic local eatery Feedstore BBQ may be expanding to Keller after being offered and economic incentive package.

Westlake Mayor Laura Wheat highlighted the stellar accomplishments of Westlake Academy, including the Boys Varsity Baseball team winning state and the graduating senior class earning $4 million in scholarships.

However, the biggest news currently surrounding the town of Westlake is the creation of Westlake Entrada, which will feature a 3,500-seat performance hall, three hotels and more than 100 townhomes and villas to accompany retail, restaurants and office space.

Trophy Club also praised their city’s youth, who recently earned various Citizen of the Year awards, and are also receiving honors for their performance in the arts and culinary skills, according to Mayor White.

Overall, the consensus between all the mayors was emphasizing that each city works together and has — inevitably — become a family. As a result, all of them truly believe there is no better place to live than Northeast Tarrant County.
