Plano, Texas, August 1, 2017 – HomeTown in North Richland Hills has been designated a Great Neighborhood by the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association.
The chapter’s Great Places in Texas program selects communities which exemplify exceptional character and highlight the role planners and planning play in creating communities of lasting value. HomeTown, a 650-acre master-planned neighborhood, features a wide mix of uses, a diverse and multigenerational housing options, abundant open space and public art displays, and a model road and pedestrian pathway network.
“HomeTown has the amenities of an urban community integrated seamlessly with the charm of a classic neighborhood,” said Lori Schwarz, AICP, Chair of Great Places in Texas Selection Committee. “Community events and neighborhood involvement provide a sense of pride for residents and the city, which was apparent in the nomination.”
With a little over 65 acres left to develop, the neighborhood is continuing to adapt and thrive. HomeTown is perfectly situated within a half mile of the TEXRail’s new commuter rail station and improvements are under way to establish pedestrian connections to the station platform.
Schools and the community library are all nearby the neighborhoods, offices, and commercial locations; all of which are monitored by an architectural management team and process to maximize the aesthetic pleasure of the built environment. Neighborhoods feature a variety of fitness and recreation facilities, such as, its 3 hockey rinks, water parks, and 86 acres of public parks.
The Texas Chapter of APA recognizes unique and authentic characteristics found in three essential components of all communities — streets, neighborhoods, and public spaces.
