We know there’s always buzz about grocery stores, so we thought we’d address the bee in everyone’s bonnet. 1. Coming to our town is entirely up to the grocer. We know you attract more with honey than vinegar, so we have programs (tax incentives, grants, etc.) set up to make ourselves as sweet-smelling as possible. 2. Part of making our land of milk and honey as sweet as possible has to do with having an ideal location for a hypothetical grocer. Our hive doesn’t have a sweet spot for a grocery store, yet, but we are working on this. (We already know what you’re thinking. “Excuse me, Queen Bee! Right off I-35 on FM 407 would be a honey pot!” or “There’s a nectar spot on the south side of FM 407 before Cleveland-Gibbs!” Unfortunately, both of those spots are not in Town limits, so that’s none of our beeswax.) 3. Lastly, potential grocery stores will be attracted by a town full of busy bees. Our growth has already shown so many other businesses that Northlake is the bee’s knees, but, like our first point, it’s entirely up to the grocer to decide if Northlake is busy enough for them.
⚠️DANGER, DANGER, DANGER⚠️ Town water demand has been flirting with water restrictions as of late. To prevent Town wide water restrictions and excessive use charges, please only water your lawn between the hours of 6 p.m. and 10 a.m. More water saving tips can be found on our website by searching for “water efficient lawn.”
