In its Tuesday meeting, The Colony City Council will consider an ordinance authorizing a site plan for Live Oak Logistics Center’s Phase IIB development.
This 26-acre tract is one of multiple phases of the Live Oak Logistics Center’s 886,000 square feet of industrial space. The Dallas Morning News reports that its cost is expected to exceed $33 million.
Concerns have been raised by residents amid discussions of this development. In an Oct. 26 Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Commission Chair Karen Hames told the developer that lighting at the industrial property could adversely affect residential neighborhoods. Residents have also expressed trepidation on how the project would negatively impact traffic and the visual appearance of the area.
