Development board to meet

A board of directors for a massive development planned for just west of Greenville will be meeting for the first time this week.

The board of the Hunt County Municipal Utility District No. 1 is scheduled for an organizational session, which will be open to the public, at 1 p.m. Tuesday at 3401 Private 1173, which is north of U.S. Highway 380 about halfway between Greenville and Farmersville.

 The district has also been referred to as the Walton Development Municipal Utility District (MUD), and is an approximately 6,635 acre tract of land, located partially with the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the city of Greenville.

The district is expected to consist of industrial manufacturing and distribution facilities, single family residential and some commercial development.

The board is scheduled Tuesday to hear a report from the developer, elect officers, adopt a resolution designating a location within the district to post notices of meetings, designate an administrative office and meeting places inside and outside of the district and consider approving a developer reimbursement agreement.

Last summer, the City of Greenville announced it was planning to provide the water and sewer service to the district, which eventually will cover an area of almost 13,000 acres, generally bounded by FM 1080 to the north, County Road 1073 to the east, FM 3211 to the south and FM 36 to the west.
