2022 Cross Timbers Conservation Development Review
As directed by the Town Council at their January 18, 2022, meeting, the Town is reviewing standards and recommendations for the Cross Timbers Conservation Development District (CTCDD) and seeking input.

What is the Cross Timbers Conservation Development District?
The Cross Timbers Conservation Development District (CTCDD) was established by the 2001 Master Plan. The purpose of the CTCDD is to preserve the integrity of the largely intact Cross Timbers ecological area in central Flower Mound, which provides the Town with its unique country atmosphere and natural environment while allowing environmentally sensitive development to occur.
In 2013, the Town's Master Plan was amended following public input to include a new form of conservation development; cluster development. Cluster development intends to maximize open space conservation, including preserving scenic corridors and vistas, on a site-by-site basis to realize a community benefit that provides the Town with its unique country atmosphere and natural environment. Special interest is given to the continuation and/or connection of open space areas between adjacent developments to protect the ecological value of the CTCDD.
