Cole Ranch Neighborhood Park #1
On September 12, the Parks, Recreation, and Beautification board adopted the conceptual master plan for the neighborhood park of Cole Ranch, phase 1. The City of Denton annexed Cole Ranch in 2006 and was classified as the Cole Ranch Master Planned Community district in 2008 (Ordinance 2008-030). In April 2020, City Council approved the developer agreement for Cole Ranch (Ordinance 2020-760).
Per the development agreement, Cole Ranch is required to build, maintain and dedicate 60 acres of parkland to the City of Denton. In addition, Cole Ranch will provide access easements to numerous other parks and trails in the City of Denton as development occurs. Public meetings were not held for the planning of this parcel as the amenities were pre-determined by the development agreements, and residents currently do not live in the development.
Cole Ranch is currently working on the approval of their Phase 1 Plat. The proposed neighborhood park will feature a playground and trail access. It is anticipated that infrastructure construction could start in 2023.
