Cross Roads, Texas (February 2022) – In the Cross Roads Vision 2035 survey conducted in 2021, community members clearly articulated their desire for diversity of restaurants, boutique services and shops, a local/organic focused grocery store, venue for public events, and a gathering place for the community – a Town Square/Town Centre. In late December, the Cross Roads Municipal Development District (MDD) acquired approximately 2.42 acres at 1151 FM 424. This is a strategic purchase of land adjacent to the Cross Roads Police Department giving the Town many options for the future. The acquisition of this property in Cross Roads is a step towards potentially creating a community center or retail space that reflects the unique character of Cross Roads. Financing for this project was provided by Government Capital Corporation, Southlake, Texas.
“The MDD is very proud to have made this investment in providing for the future of Cross Roads. We will carefully evaluate the highest use for this property to serve the residents of Cross Roads,” says John Knox, President of Cross Roads MDD. “Government Capital’s experience and expertise in the unique challenges facing economic development corporations was of great value to us.”
“I would like to congratulate John Knox and the Cross Roads MDD on their work and foresight on this acquisition,” stated Jennifer Draper, Municipal Finance Specialist, Government Capital Corporation. “This is a great example of dedicated leaders looking towards the future to meet the goals and objectives of their citizens.”
