City of Rockwall seeks resident input for I-30 corridor expansion

(ROCKWALL, TX – April 12, 2017) The City of Rockwall is looking for input from residents about what they’d like to see for future commercial development along the I-30 corridor. As Rockwall continues to grow, the City Council is guiding planning and preparation to continue growth in a positive direction. There will be an open house next Tuesday, April 18, for people to learn more, participate and offer feedback on current suggestions for future land use in the area.

Last October, the Rockwall City Council directed staff to study the I-30 corridor and provide recommendations about tax base, land use and development patterns. The open house next week offers an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to learn more about existing conditions within the corridor, and to identify any potential issues concerning current and future development in the area.

Several activities are planned for the open house event, including a brief introduction and general overview of the project, along with recommendations for future land use. Additionally, a survey has been created to help gather information about present and desired retail trends in Rockwall. The goal is for the public input to help design an action plan that will help guide the future direction of development in that vital commercial district. The meeting will take place at City Hall, located at 385 South Goliad Street in Rockwall next Tuesday, April 18, at 6 p.m. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend. Feel free to access the survey here prior to the meeting to provide your feedback. If you have any questions, or need additional information, please contact the Planning and Zoning Department at 972.771.7745.
