Shape the future of the Interstate 35E Corridor in Farmers Branch

The IH-35E corridor is an important employment center for Farmers Branch and the region. New development within the DART station area, such as the Shops at Mustang Station, will continue to be a catalyst to spur additional development within the IH-35E corridor, creating an opportunity to transform this corridor and create an impressive gateway into Farmers Branch.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which broke out in the middle of this planning process, has already had a profound impact on our community that we are only beginning to understand. As the crisis subsides and we begin to turn our attention to recovery, the opportunity exists to assess how to move forward in a way that both addresses our situation now and envisions long-term goals later.

To that end, the City is working to understand the health and resilience of businesses in the area as we emerge from the government-mandated shutdown as well as look to how the study area could change in the future to best represent Farmers Branch.

The City is seeking input from a wide range of stakeholders - residents, businesses, employees, property owners - to gain a clearer picture of what the corridor on both sides of Interstate 35E through Farmers Branch will look like in the next 20 years.

You can weigh in and help shape the future of this important corridor by taking a look at the slideshow to review key analysis of the corridor and then taking a brief survey.

Forme el futuro del corredor de la Autopista Interestatal 35E en Farmers Branch

El corredor IH-35E es un centro de empleo importante para Farmers Branch y la región. Desarrollo nuevo en la área de la estación de DART, como Shops at Mustang Station, continuará siendo un catalizador para estimular desarrollos adicional dentro del corredor IH-35E. Esto está creando una oportunidad para transformar este corredor y crear una puerta de entrada a Farmers Branch impresionante.

La pandemia de COVID-19, que surgió en medio de este proceso de planificación, ya ha tenido un profundo impacto en nuestra comunidad que apenas estamos comenzando a entender. A medida que la crisis disminuye y comenzamos a centrar nuestra atención en la recuperación, existe la oportunidad de evaluar cómo avanzar de una manera que aborde nuestra situación ahora y más adelante visulaizar objetivos a largo plazo.

Con ese fin, a medida que emergemos del cierre ordenado por el gobierno, la Ciudad está trabajando para comprender la salud y la capacidad de recuperación de las empresas en el área de estudio. También para ver cómo el área de estudio podría cambiar en el futuro para representar a Farmers Branch mejor.

La Ciudad está buscando la aportación de una amplia variedad de partes interesadas (residentes, empresas, empleados, y dueños de propiedades) para obtener una imagen más clara de cómo se verá el corredor en los próximos 20 años en ambos lados de la Autopista Interestatal 35E a través de Farmers Branch.
