By now, you all should have received a notice from the City regarding the development of a storage facility on the empty lot adjacent to the neighborhood on Cockrell Hill Rd. We have sent out information via the website, our Twitter, and Facebook page and only received two responses from a neighborhood of 300+ homes.
Please respond to the City’s request, indicating whether you approve or disapprove of the proposed development . Please contact us if you have questions.
On Friday, December 6th at 7:30pm the community is invited to join the DeSoto Youth Advisory Board and Mayor Sherman as we light the huge 25 ft. Christmas Tree in the DeSoto Town Center Plaza.

Assured Realty would like to present information and take questions regarding a “Proposed” Self-Storage Facility near Cockrell Hill Road. Since neighborhood is adjacent to this location, the developer would like to meet with residents of our community and answer any questions we may have. This meeting is held by the developer and not the City of DeSoto.
The meeting will be Monday, November 11th at 6:30 p.m. at the Civic Center in Bluebonnet Room I. Please pass this information on to your neighbors, so they can attend.
Be safe everyone.
Don’t forget that our community meeting will be held on Saturday, October 26th at 11 am at Metro Southwind Fellowship Church on Belt Line Rd. Councilwoman Curtistine McCowan may be present to listen to your concerns regarding the proposed storage facility on Cockrell Hill Rd.
Remind your neighbors.

Reports came in to Fox 4 that some in Cedar Hill heard a loud “boom.” It’s been confirmed.
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.
