Cross Roads Mission Statement
Cross Roads will be recognized as one of the best towns in Texas for families and businesses, offering a unique quality of life combining Texas Country living and quality shopping conveniences with accountable, fiscally responsible governance.
Residents of Cross Roads love living here for the country atmosphere, the bountiful trees, and the close proximity to Lake Lewisville, Lake Ray Roberts, Denton, Dallas, and Fort Worth. To maintain the beauty and serenity of our Town, there are ordinances in place regarding the protection and preservation of trees, specifics for commercial landscaping, sign specifications, residential subdivision requirements and others. Before any grading or clearing is done, specific plans must be approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and the Town Council. We designed our architectural theme of "Texas Country" to create a special look and feel for our town. The ordinance and guidelines for our Texas Country theme provide variety and flexibility while adhering to the overall look and feel we want to continue. Our local businesses tell us they receive frequent compliments about the uniqueness of Cross Roads.
No Property Tax
Cross Roads does not have municipal property tax (county taxes and school district taxes still apply) and relies on sales tax revenues and fees to fund the necessary expenditures such as road improvement and maintenance, administration, ambulance, and fire protection. Cross Roads has an elected mayor and council government. Elected representatives serve two-year terms. Our town runs on “volunteer power” with all elected representatives and committee members volunteering their time for the benefit of our citizens. See the Town Government page for the members and additional information.
We have designated our commercial corridors as the area along U.S. Highway 380 and portions of 377. Our goal is to encourage businesses to locate in Cross Roads as our area will realize significant growth over the next few years.
