The Villages of Melissa is a development project that combines municipal services, neighborhood retail, and parks with town homes and single-family homes to create a neighborhood environment for the City of Melissa.
Melissa is working hard to attract new projects and developments while preserving its history and charm.
The Villages of Melissa will include a new city hall and public library. The project will focus on a town center with retail, parks, and other services surrounding the area.
This project is a master planned development that will include a variety of housing options from town homes to one acre lots.
There will be civic gathering places with a Farmer's Market Pavilion and a Music Pavilion.
In an attempt to retain some history in the new development there will be historical markers, naming the streets and parks after original Melissa families and preserving historic buildings.
The Villages of Melissa broke ground in May 2008 and is progressing at a steady pace.
Melissa is only 5 minutes North of McKinney and a great place to raise a family or retire to a quieter lifestyle.
