Proposed Project on Cockrell Hill

Greetings Neighbors,

We recently had a board meeting (minutes will be posted soon) and we had a guest, Krisha Morris, from Assured Development tell us about plans for her company to purchase the vacant land on Cockrell Hill to build a storage facility. The total lot space is 9 acres, and they are proposing to build on 8 of those acres. It is expected that 650 one-story units will be built with access until 9 pm.

We would like your feedback on this matter. The proposal needs to be approved by DeSoto City Council. In order to ensure that the council knows how our community feels about the development, whether good or bad, we need to here from you. Please send us your comments below or through our Contact form. We urge you to attend our next Community Meeting scheduled for October 26th at 11 am at Metro Southwind Fellowship Church. Representatives from Assured development will be present at the meeting.

You can review what the proposed development will look like by clicking here.
