Garland City Council OKs Eastern Hills Country Club Conversion
The Garland, TX City Council approved a concept plan to convert the shuttered 178-acre Eastern Hills Country Club into a 300-home community, with trails. My Possibilities, a nonprofit organization in Plano, TX, is overseeing the housing development, of which one-third of the homes will go to My Possibilities’ special-needs clients. The remaining homes will be put on the market for between $350,000 and $425,000.
Located at 3000 S. Country Club Rd. in the northeast Dallas suburb, Eastern Hills once held an 18-hole golf course, tennis facilities, pool and a clubhouse. The owners declared bankruptcy in 2014. The property was vacated the same year. My Possibilities will pay $12 million for the land. The organization provides vocational education for North Texas adults with intellectual and cognitive disabilities. The development’s homeowner’s association will have on-site, on-call security and basic landscaping.
The council needs to approve a detailed plan before construction can start.
