Business Developments and Community Events

The Greater Hidden Hills Overlay Zone will be expanded to include part of a parcel that’s up for rezoning.  The owners of 7 acres at the northeast corner of Redan have agreed to the request to put the entire parcel in the Greater Hidden Hills Overlay District. This property makes an “L” shape around the Citgo strip center; the portion on the east side of the strip center is already covered by the overlay, but the three residential properties along Panola are not.  The agreement means that the prohibited business list will apply to all of the property. In addition, the property will have to meet the Overlay Zone sign and design guidelines.  It’s really good news, and we have Commissioner Mereda Davis-Johnson to thank for making it happen.  The actual vote on the conditions will take place at the 9 a.m. Board of Commissioners meeting June 26.

At this time, the owners have only one proposed development for the site: a Waffle House.

And that brings us to the other Waffle House announced for our area: this one next to Los Arcos on Redan Road (just west of S. Hairston). We are told that construction will begin in early July. This is exciting news because Waffle House has agreed to make streetscape improvements to its section of Redan Road, including the bus stop.

Please make a note of these upcoming events and Join the fun!
