In 2014, the City of Cedar Park held a comprehensive planning process known as “Imagine Cedar Park.” During that process, residents expressed a desire to see Bell Boulevard revitalized, as well as the need for a unique destination in Cedar Park that could be somewhere “special” to go. The Bell Boulevard Redevelopment Master Plan, which was finished in 2015, sought to address both of these concerns.
Beginning in 2014 and running through 2019, the City embarked on a robust public engagement process that included multiple large public workshops, numerous small stakeholder meetings and presentations to targeted groups. Collectively, more than 2,000 people attended these events, marking the highest participation level for any project in the history of Cedar Park.
In 2020, the City of Cedar Park and RedLeaf entered into a Master Development Agreement that governs development of land, the deconstruction of existing improvements, the construction of infrastructure, financing agreements, phasing and expected timeline of the project, and numerous other development obligations and responsibilities.
With public agreements and zoning finalized, RedLeaf assumed leadership of realizing the community’s vision for the project, now officially known as The Bell District.
