North Richland Hills City Council meeting

 I attended the North Richland Hills city council meeting last night and wanted to share some of the fabulous real estate information that I learned!

 Hometown NRH

 One of the desired communities here in North Richland Hills is Hometown in the heart of downtown North Richland Hills.  There are two new construction phases that were up for voting for final plats last night.  The city council passed the motions.

 Hometown will be getting a new phase along the canal, north of Bridge street.  This phase of Hometown will be 76 new homes.  19 homes were approved as casita/cottage lots which are less than forty feet wide with small yards.  There are to be 8 lots built on the canal with lake front views and then more townhomes! There is a high demand for townhomes because North Richland Hills doesn't have hardly any communities of townhomes for sale here and Hometown especially is desired. 

 This new phase will be priced at $185,000 to $210,000 for townhomes, $246,000 to 

Hometown NRH $276,000 for the casita/cottage homes and $271,000 to $336,000 for garden homes.  There were concerns brought up for more sidewalks and slightly wider streets that were addressed in this phase, particularly for parking along Bridge street by the school.

 The property in Hometown along the canal to the South of the bridge and West of the new Dolce apartment community was up for consideration for a final plat of the Villas of Hometown.  This is 37 homes that will be built on that property.  Some will have views of the NRH2O water park and also some lakefront views.   

 Smith Farm Addition

 Smith Farm North Richland HillsThere was a public hearing regarding changing the zoning of land off of Douglas just south of Crosstimbers park to R2 single family use from agricultural.  The Marvin Smith family have planned a small 21 home development in the $500,000 range to be built there on 8 acres.  There are plans for open space within the community as well.  This is an ideal location and will flow nicely in the neighborhood.

 

Cambridge
The newest North Richland Hills TX community that is getting underway off of Iron Horse and Liberty was addressed again last night for final plat approval for 60 homes in Cambridge Place, north of Liberty Way and 77 homes in Cambridge Village.  These homes will be south of Liberty way east of Iron Horse along the back of  a current development.  The issue of the builder making sure that homes were going to be better soundproofed within 150 feet of the current railroad track was addressed.  The first homes in this community won't be ready until next year per a builder representative.

Richfield Park

Richfield Park improvementsRichfield park south of Chapman and Graham Ranch will be getting a much needed play structure face lift.  A bid was awarded to WeBuildFun for the purchase and installation of new shade structures, playground equipment and fall surface materials.  The pictures of the new park are beautiful and I can't wait to bike down there with my family and play. 

 

Ecigarrette/smoking alternative ordinance

 From here on out if a proprietor wishes to open one of these types of shops in North Richland Hills they will require a special use permit and have to go before the council for approval.  The main reason for this is so that the council can decide that these types of shops are not going to be opened next to areas that cater to kids and families.  They also passed an ordinance that prohibits the sale of ecigarrettes to minors and the use of these devices anywhere smoking of tobacco is normally prohibited such as restaurants, stores etc.  I am glad that they passed this because I have seen people smoking these inside of Walmart, Ross and other stores.  I know that this isn't a typical cigarrette and are supposed to be much safer but I feel that they should still be confined to areas where my family and I don't have to be breathing it in. 

 

I hope that you have all had a wonderful day and thanks for reading my North Richland Hills TX update!
