A three-year annexation plan for Lake Rockwall Estates, also known as Happy Country Homes, was adopted Feb. 6 by the Rockwall City Council.Located along Horizon and Tubbs roads, there are two phases in the development. Phase I is the area north of Rockwall Lake with single-family homes that includes 440 lots. Phase II is the area south of Rockwall Lake with mobile home units. It has 642 lots.

According to state law, the Council cannot formally vote on the annexation of Lake Rockwall Estates until 2009. The Council will soon be notifying all of the property owners in the area that they have been included in the annexation plan. The city will also be developing an inventory of services and facilities currently available in the area.
