|Commercial Redevelopment in NRH
Formerly known as Northeast Plaza, the property at
8703 Bedford Euless Road
in North Richland Hills, is being revitalized into Warren Plaza, a commercial center featuring restaurants, professional services, shared office space and retail.
Once home to Furr's Cafeteria and a Segway store, this area is just south of SH 183 and north of North East Mall on the NRH border with Hurst.
The property is receiving a modern facelift and new public patio, achieving the developer's vision to create a space for visitors to eat, drink, shop and talk. With completion expected in Summer 2019, some confidential uses have already signed up, as the center is currently leasing. For more information, contact our NRH Economic Development Department at 817-427-6090 or Debbie Mullins with Ready Real Estate at email@example.com.

|Be Mosquito Free
If barbecues, picnics, or other outdoor fun are part of your July 4th plans, remember to apply insect repellent. Using insect repellent
every time you spend time outdoors is one of the most important steps you can take to protect your family from mosquitoes and the diseases they carry.
You should also remove stagnant water where mosquitoes breed from flower pots, trash containers, children's toys, clogged rain gutters and other places around your property. Place environmentally friendly Bti briquets in stagnant water that can't be drained. Any amount of standing water can give mosquitoes a place to lay their eggs.
