Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village Site Plan is Approved, Finally

Update 5/9/19: Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village Site Plan is Officially Approved. Finally!

The Lake Dallas City Council unanimously approved the site plan and amendments to the Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village Planned Development Ordinance! The council agreed to give us 24 months to install the landscaping sprinkler system.

Thank you those who showed up tonight to support us, those who have showed up in the past, those who have given us words of encouragement and those who have been following along side us on this journey.

Tomorrow we should be able to obtain necessary permits to move forward.

-Developer Terry Lantrip

4/26: Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village back on track?

The first community of it’s kind— tiny house on wheels only village, inside city limits. It utilizes the IRC Tiny House Appendix Q with an additional tie-down requirement. While originally approved in 2017, it hit a significant snag after their groundbreaking in February. The new City Manager decided out of the blue that the Developer needed a grading permit and other random hoops to jump through. Pushback on these unreasonable “requirements” ultimately resulted in the Mayor stepping in to broker a compromise. It now looks the Village is back on track to open this summer, if the City Council promptly approves the site plan, again.

Attend the City Council to Show Your Support!

It's official: The Lake Dallas City Council will hold a public hearing on the Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 9. This will include possible (hopefully) approval of our Site Plan and amending the Planned Development ordinance to allow residents to have a storage building no larger that 48 square feet if they desire to have one.

If these items are approved we can officially begin construction to include utilities and the washateria.

Thank you to Mayor Michael Barnhart and Mayor Pro Tem Andi Nolan for helping to speed up the process by a couple of weeks. Originally this public hearing was to take place May 23.

Please join us that evening!

-Terry Lantrip, developer of Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village

 

The Village will have 13 spots, each $500-550/month. One is still available!

3/1/19: Development of Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village is currently at a standstill.

 

"Move-in day for the Lake Dallas Tiny Home Village will be pushed back because the project is being put on pause for a grading permit, which land developer Terry Lantrip said he was only recently made aware of.

About 30 supporters and future residents of the development voiced concerns and excitement about moving to the area during a City Council meeting on Thursday evening."
