Habitat for Humanity Project Gets Zoning Go-Ahead

Earlier this month, the city of Mansfield Planning and Zoning Commission approved the zoning for the Habitat for Humanity Mansfield Cottages development. A public hearing continuation was granted for a change of zoning from single-family residential district to PD planned development district for single-family residential attached townhome uses on 2.997 acres, Mount Zion Estates, located at 301 Sayers St.

The zoning change would increase the density from low density, with a maximum of five units per acre, to medium density, with a maximum 11 units per acre. This would equate to a total of 33 units on the 2.997-acre lot.

Castle Ranch is a 45-acre multifamily development scheduled to begin pre-development in late 2021. A decade ago, Wildcat Management worked with city of Mansfield staff to put a plan in place for this development project. Wildcat Management has acquired multiple properties that stretch along W. Broad Street, spanning between Man’s Best Friend Dog Park and Sayers Street, to prepare for this future development. Wildcat Management donated the frontage to help spur development on the west side of Mansfield, and was instrumental in the development of the right-of-way on W. Broad Street, which increased accessibility to properties on either side of the street.
