Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is Dean Ranch?
Dean Ranch is a 1,825-acre, mixed-use, master-planned development to be located along the Fort Worth/Aledo border at Bailey Ranch Road and FM 1187. About 238 acres of that development will soon be voluntarily annexed into Aledo, enabling it to serve as an appropriately designed eastern gateway to Aledo. The Aledo portion of the project will contain approximately 325 high quality, single-family homes, as well as up to 35 acres of commercial development, buffered from the single-family homes by up to 100 townhomes.
2. Isn’t this entire Dean Ranch area outside Aledo?
Not for long. The plan is to annex 238 acres in the southwestern portion of the development in the fall of 2022, to ensure Aledo has more control over the portion of this project right at the city’s eastern gateway. The City of Aledo and City of Fort Worth previously announced, in June 2021, a Joint Resolution and Boundary Agreement through which a portion of the subject property was released from Fort Worth’s ETJ (Extraterritorial Jurisdiction) into Aledo’s ETJ – making it subject to annexation by Aledo. This 238-acre parcel is located along the eastern side of FM 1187, just north and south of the intersection with Bailey Ranch Road.
