City of Colleyville, Texas
Maintaining a Premier Community
From its rural beginnings, Colleyville has become one of the premier communities to live in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) Metroplex. The city is well known for its great neighborhoods, excellent schools, and well-maintained parks and amenities, all located with convenient access to regional employment destinations such as DFW International Airport, Downtown Fort Worth, Las Colinas, etc.
Making Colleyville a â€œDestinationâ€
This comprehensive plan update builds on the strengths of the city today and identifies the framework for key decisions and actions that will guide Colleyville over the next two decades to make that vision become a reality. The focus is on making Colleyville the destination of choice for those seeking a vibrant place to live, work, or play with a high quality of life. This plan reinforces and builds on the principles and values that have always guided decisions in the city, but also establishes a fresh perspective that responds to changing dynamics.
A Vision for Colleyville Boulevard (SH 26)
More specifically, this Plan explores the future vision for Colleyville Boulevard in more detail. Colleyville Boulevard is not only the cityâ€™s main economic engine, but is also the key to defining the character of the city. As the main commercial artery of the city, it is critical to maintain and enhance this corridor as a thriving address for destination businesses, specifically sales tax-generating businesses.The goal is to create a cohesive development character along the corridor while recognizing key nodes or areas as special places with greater concentration of commercial/retail uses in a more pedestrian-friendly context. To this end, this planning effort creates a market-based framework that combines a strong physical vision, regulatory structure, and public infrastructure investment into a business plan for the Boulevard.
Ms. Narayana was responsible for developing the recommendations for the Colleyville Boulevard Corridor and regulatory implementation recommendations. The Plan was adopted in December 2015.
