Willow Park’s water and sewer plan for future development moves forward


“The other thing that we talked about in our committee meeting was that some of these projects are going to be built by the developer directly,” Shaffstall said., adding “We’ve outlined a skeleton or a framework of how we would like to see our system developed.”

The committee recommended adoption of the capital improvements plan and offered several observations.

There appears to be no provisions to provide sewer service to the northern portion of the city, curtailing the opportunity for growth in the area, P&Z Chairman David Fritz noted in his motion.

The committee also observed that current development may cause the city to reach greater population levels earlier than anticipated in the plan, Fritz stated.

Because the plan uses projections, rather than historical data, of production capabilities of three water wells the city recently drilled, the committee also recommended the city look again at the plan several months later to see if adjustments are warranted.

Shaffstall said he does recommend the city look at the plan again but do so after a comprehensive plan is adopted.

The comprehensive plan will look at land use assumptions and they will want to make sure those two match, as well as look the well production information, Shaffstall said.
