Hi, I have not seen a recent update on the plan for Cottonwood Creek Park between Legacy and Teel. Now that the last phase of Shaddock Creek is being developed, what is the plan for the park?

I spoke to the developer and they have not started construction. He indicated that they have mowed the area but at this point they will not be in a position to start that phase of the subdivision until the housing market improves.

Thank you for your response. I guess I am thinking of the wrong part of the subdivision. There are new houses going up in Shaddock Creek immediately north of the creek and west of Legacy. I thought this was the last phase. What area is the builder referring to?

Chris,

I apologize for the confusion. When I spoke of the next phase of the subdivision, I we speaking of the new streets, utilities and pad sites, rather than houses. The next phase, which the developers agreement is tied too, is the area of land south of the creek west of Legacy Drive. If you look on an aerial map it is the triangle piece of land that is roughly bond by the existing streets and the Cottonwood Creek and the Tributary to that branches off and runs Southeast to Legacy. It does not go all the way to the creek but that should give you an idea of where it is at.

I hope this helps.

I saw an article that said there was a meeting about the park the week of August 6th. Can we get an update as to where we are in the planning/execution of the park? Many thanks!

The developer and the City are working to finalize a revision to the development agreement that will facilitate the parks construction. The timing of park construction is still dependent on when the developer will move forward with his next phase of Shaddock Creek Estates. (the construction of streets for a new phase, not construction of homes) At this time, we feel it will probably start construction next year, but it is dependent on the real estate market and how many lots and homes have sold in the existing phases of Shaddock Creek Estates.

On the Master Plan, I only see one parking lot. It is located within the SCE neighborhood. The parking lots for such a large park should be on Legacy and Teel (main roads), not within a neighborhood.

This parking lot is primarily to serve the neighborhood park that is located within the subdivision. It is doubtful that a parking lot located on Legacy Parkway or Teel Parkway would actually have as many people parking in it as one more centrally located. Furthermore, the topography, shape of the land and the flood plain limit line make it impossible to construct a parking lot in either of these locations.

Again, the main use of this parking lot is for the people that will be using the neighborhood park, so it needs to be in that same area.

The park is listed as a linear park not a neighborhood park. Should that be updated? Given the size and it is open/accessible to the public, adding a parking lot to a subdivision will generate additional traffic? Does P&R have estimated usage numbers? I hope you can see the concern. Thanks.
