The Coppell Independent School District (CISD) Board of Trustees initiated the first steps toward acquiring 125 acres of land for schools on a 355-acre tract of property sold by Texas Utilities (TXU) to Crow-Billingsley, a real estate development company in early November 2005.

In December, Dallas' Planning & Zoning Commission voted 11-1 to grant Crow-Billingsley's request for a zoning change from what was originally zoned agricultural to M3 multi-family housing. The recommendation of the Planning & Zoning Commission will go before the City Council on Wednesday, January 25th at 1 p.m. While there are high expectations of coming to a mutually beneficial agreement regarding the density being planned for the area, CISD leadership feels they have a duty to plan for the potential regional impact such a development will have on the school community and will continue to move forward with condemnation proceedings.
