Hurst Sustainable Neighborhood Plan 2017

Hurst is a first-class city with great assets, resources and city leadership. However, to maintain its status, the city recognized that it needs to be proactive to remain resilient and competitive. As a mature and built-out suburban community in the DFW Metroplex, Hurst is beginning to experience some of the challenges that come with an aging suburban community. The goal of this initiative was to develop a market and community-based redevelopment strategy that can stimulate private investment and prioritize public involvement. Below you will find the Hurst Redevelopment Plan that was done with the help of Catalyst Commercial, planning consultants, who were hired by the city.  These consultants and city staff met with representatives of the residential and commercial property owners to discuss and help produce the plan.  It includes discussion of the entire city with special focus on south east Hurst.  The city will now work with these same representatives to work towards enhancements that the private sector will need to support as well as the city and it's residents.
