City of Melissa Texas 2015 Comprehensive Plan Update Page 8.16 Chapter 8 City Center Concept Plan When Central Street is realigned to provide entrance into the Town Center it should become a top priority for improvements from SH 5 east and south into the Old Town area. This will create visual interest into Old Town from the Town Center. o TOD Area No priority projects are needed for the TOD at this time because its establishment is likely many years in the future funds are better spent in the short-term improving and enhance the Town Center and Old Town. However the first improvements in the TOD when the City has specific knowledge of when transit is going to be established should be trails and an ornamental park area. Although no more than one or two substantial projects could be completed each year a sustained and consistent effort over a five- or ten-year period will achieve a significant transformation especially in Old Town that would further the City Center as a whole. Policy 2 Encourage Development in Old Town The development of infill-type lots or redevelopment projects that involve one or more lots are often more difficult to complete than the development of a vacant land area. In addition to seed projects developmentredevelopment in Old Town should be encouraged by the City through procedural and cost- cutting measures. C2.1 The City should investigate ways in which it can streamline the development andor redevelopment process in Old Town. Lot Consolidation Given the small size of lots that characterize Old Town there may be a need to consolidate two or more lots into one lot for development purposes. This would require a replat amending plat or a minor plat. In order to encourage lot consolidation for developmentredevelopment in Old Town the City could waive fees and associated application costs thereby saving the applicant money. Shortened Approval Process The less time it takes to get a development proposal approved and completed the more profit is realized from the development. The City should investigate its approval procedures and should streamline such procedures if possible. One way of streamlining is to allow administrative approval of some types of development applications. In many cases replats amending plats and minor plats can be approved administratively. The City should consider revising the existing Subdivision Ordinance to allow administrative approval of certain plats as allowed by the Texas Local Government Code and in agreement with the City Attorney. Another way is to place approvals on the consent agenda of the applicable government body.
