Enhance the Unique ‘Community Oasis’ Experience

​​2040 Strategic Pillar — Enhance the Unique 'Community Oasis' Experience


Importance of the Unique 'Community Oasis' Experience

The concept of Coppell being a community oasis attracted a lot of interest in the visioning process. This was defined in people’s minds as being safe neighborhood locations, where people know their neighbors, children play on the streets and there are similarities and uniformity. This concept also supports the strong ‘heath and wellness’ focus in Coppell. To create and maintain this sense of an oasis, it is important to consider scale. As a city of over 40,000 people it will be difficult to retain that feel at a City scale. However, there is great potential to strengthen this experience and the ‘small town feel’ at a neighborhood scale. In Coppell, the neighborhoods are currently loosely defined, but appear to be centered around schools and park and recreation facilities. Deepening this neighborhood identification and feel will allow residents to enjoy the community oasis experience.​

2040 Goals​:


  • Develop ‘sense of neighborhood’ at an appropriate scale
  • Develop programs that enhance the unique feel of each neighborhood
  • Create metrics to measure the ‘health and happiness’ of Coppell residents​
  • Establish new safety awareness and training programs
