THE CITY WOULD LIKE YOUR HELP!
The City of Ovilla will be updating its Hazard Mitigation Plan (HMP) in the upcoming future. The HMP identifies natural hazards and vulnerabilities, assesses risks and identifies mitigation initiatives to reduce or eliminate future losses resulting from those hazards. We want our community to participate in this process by taking this quick 5-minute survey. All the information collected from this survey will be anonymous.

CITY PROJECTS !
Founders Park Development Underway
During the fiscal year (FY2021-2022) budget process Council approved improvements to Founders Park, the area behind the city facilities. A park enhancement project is currently underway, to include a new pavilion, public restrooms, and walking trails through Founders Park. January 2022 was the target date to break ground for the installation of a pavilion. How exciting! Public restrooms are installed and set between the two baseball fields, near the Cindy Jones playground. The smaller baseball field is also a girls’ softball field that includes a baseball field for 10-years old and under players. New fencing was rencently installed around the smaller field. The next phase following the pavilion and restrooms, is planned for new walking trails beginning at the childrens park playground connecting to the public restrooms and proceeding around Founders Park area and the new Founders Park Pavilion, and eventually connecting to the city parking lot located at Cockrell Hill Road and Main Street. This is a huge enhancement to Founders Park, adding beauty and opportunities to the public for planned events, and providing a place for children to play and families to connect with nature and enjoy the outdoors. Walking trails will not only offer a connection to all of the downtown area but also offer a means for residents to maintain health and stay fit. This is a tangible reflection of the quality of life to our Ovilla community. The photo is a concept plan of the pavilion. Actual photos are forthcoming.
