West Tawakoni EDC discuss future projects, city improvement

This month, the West Tawakoni Economic Development Corporation discussed ongoing projects and potential improvements within the city.

Also on the agenda was a discussion on the Cabela’s contract for 2019, a discussion led by Jim Turnipseed and Linda Kattner.

An EDC mixer was also on the agenda and was scheduled Nov. 8, a few days after the meeting.

Short term goals were also up for discussion and consisted of the visitor guide in conjunction with the Lovely RV Park, internet improvement, visual enhancement to create a better experience within the city with a list of ideas like bluebonnets, limit “flea market/thrift” stores, and the elimination of signs and businesses no longer active.

Also included in the short term goals list were plans to determine a liaison between the EDC and the chamber, establish schedule to visit neighboring EDC groups and establish a schedule to visit existing businesses.

Long term goals included identifying potential businesses to attract to the City of West Tawakoni, signature event, and identify land that can be developed for commercial and residential.

The Cloisters of West Tawakoni are still under construction but a lot has already been accomplished for the long awaited luxury duplex apartments.

Recently, streets have already been poured and onlookers driving along Highway 276 and Mays Lane should be able to visibly see the framing of the buildings.

Earlier June, a groundbreaking ceremony was held in the city of West Tawakoni to begin construction on The Cloisters, which is one of several projects that the City of West Tawakoni and the EDC have been working diligently to launch.

The new site for a two story duplex residential homes with garages are known as "The Cloisters" of West Tawakoni and they are located off Highway 276 and Mays Lane.  These homes are located on private cul-de-sacs with natural landscape setting for beauty and low maintenance. Terry Moore of Garrett Moore Company, a collaboration of real estate services, stated that he was delighted that the project is now under way on this exciting new development of The Cloisters of West Tawakoni, which represents a significant investment for The City of West Tawakoni and its residents.
