Richardson project is example of “everyone wins!”

The recent decision by the City of Richardson to double the size of the Spring Creek Nature Area in order to protect a valuable ecosystem and preserve a site with a rich history dating back to the early pioneers is an example of how local governments, developers and conservation organizations such as Connemara can all work together to meet the needs of a growing community.

Instead of building thousands of multifamily units on the property as planned, the developer is selling the land to the city in exchange for the right to develop the units on land near a light-rail station. Everyone wins!
