Terrell: Gaining Unprecedented Momentum as a High Growth Region

Housing restoration, preservation, in-fill residential housing construction, newly-platted housing developments and commercial and retail development is surging in Terrell. The city’s Municipal Development Department is seeing valuation increases that demonstrate clear evidence of sustained development. For example, the department has seen an increase in permitting activity related to renovations in existing housing stock and structural repairs. The department also is working closely with developers of the Creekside Addition, bound by Poetry Road, Terrell High School, Long Elementary School and Arlie White Park. City Council approved a Residential Partnership Development Agreement on November 8, 2017; and city staff is currently reviewing the first phase. Additionally, Calvary Oaks housing development, which has been dormant for the last several years, now has record construction near West End Street in the Southwest area of town. Camden Homes, a developer in Town North Estates, is nearing completion of their build-out of three and four-bedroom brick homes within walking distance of Terrell High School.

“I am seeing the value of the City Council Comprehensive City Planning Efforts all coming together to strengthen core city neighborhoods and grow the local Terrell economy,” said Terrell Mayor D. J. Ory. “City planning efforts are driving the local economic growth.” ~Terrell Tribune~

City of Terrell Seeks Public Input to Address Drainage Problems

TERRELL, Texas — February 14, 2018 —

 The City of Terrell is developing a Drainage Master Plan by evaluating problems that occur during rain events. The plan will identify drainage concerns and provide a prioritized plan for improving drainage conditions within the community.

As part of the process, the City will create an inventory of the existing drainage system and identify projects that can be implemented in the near term. Areas of known problems will be analyzed. The City is evaluating drainage along creeks, other open drainage ways, and the pipe/culvert infrastructure. Once the situations are assessed, the City will identify potential solutions and develop a prioritized capital improvement program.

To develop and adopt an effective plan, the City is seeking input from stakeholders and the public. Share your drainage concerns and get involved:
