The Heritage Hills/Windsor Hills combined neighborhood plan was developed through an extensive two-and-a-half year process and approved by City Council in January 2011. It says:
This portion of the I‐35 frontage road contains a variety of auto-oriented commercial uses that mostly serves a regional market. Some of the major uses along this portion of the Planning Area include: several major hotel chains, mini storage warehouses, several sit‐down and fast food restaurants, Henna Chevrolet, a furniture store, medical and non‐medical office buildings, two small shopping centers, and a variety of service‐oriented businesses (pest control, copy shop, and various auto parts and auto repair shops.) The community’s vision for this area is that it provide more neighborhood friendly services, and support the development of aesthetically attractive commercial projects.
Objective: Support the I-35 frontage road as a regional provider of
offices and commercial goods and services but also provide more
neighborhood serving uses.
Recommendation: Support and encourage commercial uses along the I-35
Recommendation: Support revitalizing and redeveloping properties along I‐35 to support a variety of attractive, locally serving businesses, which are well maintained.
