Current News

On Monday, March 9, by request of the City of Krum, Krum's Economic Development Corporation (EDC) took an important step in helping to shape the future of the city by committing $50,000 toward the update of Krum's Comprehensive Master Plan. Mayor Terri Wilson and planning consultant Sherry Sefko presented the request to the Krum EDC.

A comprehensive master plan is a long-range guide for the future growth and physical development of a city. The purpose of a comprehensive master plan is to create an increasingly better, more healthful, prosperous, efficient and attractive community. By setting expectations for the growth of the city, the plan both protects the property investments of existing residents and businesses and encourages future private investment and quality development.

Krum's Comprehensive Master Plan, initially adopted in May 1995, was last updated in November 2005. The potential update would build upon previous planning efforts. In addition to a focus on quality land development, particular emphasis would be given to the design of future roadway, water, sanitary sewer and drainage facilities necessary to support existing and future land development. The update process would involve substantial community input to ensure a plan unique to Krum and is expected to take 18-24 months to complete upon commencement.

Krum's City Council is expected to consider the update of the Comprehensive Master Plan update in the near future. The EDC funding would supplement city funds for the plan update.


In addition, Krum's City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission met in work session on Monday, March 16, to review and discuss a first draft of a new city zoning ordinance. The draft zoning ordinance, prepared by Sherry Sefko of Municipal Planning Consulting Services, is the culmination of a year-long effort to update and modernize Krum's zoning regulations.

A zoning ordinance typically consists of written standards and a map. It addresses the types of activities and structures and other improvements, such as residential, office, retail, commercial, etc., that may occur on property within the city limits. The intent of zoning regulations is to protect public safety, health and welfare by grouping similar compatible activities and buildings into districts or zones.

The draft zoning ordinance is the first major rewrite of Krum's zoning regulations in nearly 20 years. The current zoning ordinance was adopted in March 1997 and has had minor updates over time.

The current zoning ordinance districts and standards form the basis of the new draft zoning ordinance. The focus of the new draft zoning ordinance is to improve the quality of residential and nonresidential development in Krum by proposing enhanced landscaping, exterior building materials, fencing/screening and parking standards and better-defined land use definitions and home occupations standards.

The Krum City Council and Planning and Zoning Commission will continue to meet in work session on a regular basis to refine the draft zoning ordinance. Once this refinement is complete, the new zoning ordinance will be considered at public hearings of the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council. Prior to the public hearings, copies of the draft zoning ordinance will be made available for the public to review at the Krum City Hall and Library.
