Old Town Redevelopment Concept Plan

Conceptual Old Town Redevelopment Plan Approved

Since July, 2013, the City has been working toward completion of a Conceptual Old Town Redevelopment Plan. The Haslet Community and Economic Development Corp. Type B (HCEDC) approved funding a conceptual planning study. Then, the City Council signed off on the study and directed the city administrator to proceed with developing a conceptual urban re-development plan for the Old Town area with the assistance of the Planning and Zoning Commission.  Many meetings have been held with planning consultants, city staff, the HCEDC, and the Planning and Zoning Commission to design and finalize the conceptual plan. The City Council reviewed the final proposed conceptual plan and approved the plan on September 15, 2014. The purpose of this Concept Plan is to provide a clearer long term vision for Old Town.  The plan establishes Old Town as an urban “work-live-play” center.  The Plan will also serve as a tool to provide developers and new businesses a clear picture of the city’s desired direction in the Old Town district.  Old Town could potentially include mixed uses such as higher density residential housing, local retail, professional services, eating and nightlife establishments with a bus transportation hub.  Enhancements suggested by the plan could potentially result in Old Town becoming a tax-generating center and also a preferred destination for Haslet Citizens and those in the surrounding region.  For a complete look at the Haslet Old Town Conceptual Study follow this link: Old Town Redevelopment Conceptual Plan
