In October 2014, the Keller Economic Development Board and city staff began focusing on North Main/Hwy. 377 as the next commercial corridor, following plans for Old Town Keller - West, that city leaders needed to target for strategic development plans.
The KEDB then took a lead role in reviewing and considering recommendations for the area; the analysis and resulting recommendations, which will now go forward to Planning & Zoning and then City Council for their consideration, are included in the North Main - Mount Gilead to Johnson Road Planning & Economic Analysis Study.
