Keller Approves Plans For Private Tennis Club

KELLER (CBSDFW.COM) – Keller city council has approved a new plan for the private Birch Lawn and Racquet, despite threats of a lawsuit from some upset neighbors.

The new plan replaces proposed bubble domes with a permanent metal building to enclose five of the tennis courts.

The redesign more than triples the size of the original clubhouse, allowing for a café, larger locker rooms, a lounge and gym.

A lawyer representing neighbors opposed to the plan sent the developer, Taylor Dent, a letter threatening “legal steps” to stop him from “ever putting a shovel in the ground.”

Dent told CBS11 Tuesday evening he hadn’t seen the letter but was relieved to have city council’s approval.

“It’s been a pretty contentious thing. That’s not what I had envisioned bringing to Keller. I was hoping to bring a project that everyone could rally behind and move forward with, but now hopefully we have a project that everyone will see sooner or later is a great benefit to Keller,” he said.

Dent said the first phase of the club could open late this year.

  1. Visiting incorporate my old mind froth topper tonight to view if that assists along with the added suppleness. Although possibly I just spent excessive opportunity on the old failed up mattress that I replaced through this one.
