Proposed 54-home Subdivision Rejected by Planning & Zoning Commission

The Planning & Zoning Commission of Southlake recently declined plans by acclaimed builder Toll Brothers to construct a 54-home development on the northwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Shady Oaks Drive. The new neighborhood would have encompassed 49 acres.

The decision to reject The Glenmore, as reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Feb. 4, came from a disagreement between the builder and the commission for the entrance of the new subdivision.

Nearby residents were already in opposition to the subdivision, which would combine four estate properties, due to its potential to cause increased traffic and density to the area, according to the article.

The commission's proposal was for the builder to remove one or two lots at the entrance of the subdivision to give it a more "park-like" look and feel. Toll Brothers division president Rob Paul did not budge, according to the article, saying, "Every lot counts."

Paul plans to regroup, which could mean this is not over yet.

Toll Brothers' properties in Carroll ISD include Southlake Woods, Shady Oaks, Southlake Glen and Southlake Meadows. They also have a presence in Colleyville with The Overlook at Colleyville and Whittier Heights.
