With just a few short months until the grand opening of Windsong Ranch, a 2,030-acre master-planned community 2.5 miles west of the Dallas North Tollway and north of Highway 380, a $5.1 million infrastructure project in the Town of Prosper is complete. The project, which was announced in 2012, was a joint effort with The Town of Prosper, Prosper Economic Development Corporation (EDC) and major landowners including Terra Verde Group and Greater Texas Land Resources.
"With the utility infrastructure in place, you will really start to see things take shape," said Ray Smith, Mayor of Prosper. "It paves the way for the accelerated growth of non-residential development north of Highway 380, west of the Tollway. You will see a lot of commercial development over the next several years including retail and restaurants."
The water and sanitary sewer service sets the stage to serve 20,000 residents in the west part of town, or 4,700 households, and about 1,000 acres of non-residential/commercial development. The cost was shared with adjacent property owners with planned developments in the area. Approximately two miles of sanitary sewer lines and approximately five miles of water lines were constructed.
"The timing of the utility project coincides with the grand opening of the first phase of Windsong Ranch, which will have 323 single-family residential homes," said Martin. "We are excited to see this part of town taking shape and welcome the first residents to our community, which encourages an active, healthy lifestyle for growing families and active adults."
