BURLESON – The Burleson City Council approved 1611 Golf Club’s application to develop an indoor golf club in the Old Town district and discussed Burleson Police Department headquarters-expansion updates Monday at City Hall.

1611, which offers Trackman golf-simulators and a full-service bar and kitchen, will develop its third location in the suite Dollar General used to operate on Renfro and become the first entertainment-use in Old Town.
With City Council’s approval being the last step for 1611’s development application, 1611 will begin remodeling the suite by June 30 and open by December 31.
Burleson public works and engineering director Errick Thompson presented to City Council updates to the expansion of BPD’s headquarters at the meeting Monday.
Major updates to the headquarters-expansion include adding a second story to the main building, increasing the building’s size to 28,170 square feet from 24,215 square feet, correspondingly decreasing the asset building’s size, moving the public safety communications department to the second floor of the main building and moving property and evidence out of the asset building and into the main building.
Thompson said moving property and evidence to the main building was important to BPD.
Not included in the updates was adding a sally port, but city manager Tommy Ludwig told City Council the city will add a sally port and use Burleson’s debt-capacity to pay for it if necessary, upon councilmember Adam Russell’s suggestion.
City Council will meet again February 5 at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
