The Main Street Parking Lot Expansion is in the final stages. Walking trails to the downtown area will be completed soon, as well as directional signs and lighting. This project is funded by the Municipal Development District that was created by the voters of Ovilla in November 2009, for the imposition of a sales and use tax at the rate of one-fourth of one percent for the purpose of financing development projects beneficial to the district.

The public can drop off potentially dangerous prescription medications at collection sites which will adhere to local COVID-19 guidelines and regulations in order to maintain the safety of all participants and local law enforcement. DEA and its partners will collect controlled, non-controlled, and over the counter medications which include tablets, capsules, patches, and other solid forms of prescription drugs. Intravenous solutions, injectable items, and syringes will not be accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens. Other sharps and illegal drugs, such as marijuana or methamphetamine, are not a part of this initiative and should not be placed in collection containers. They will not be accepted. DEA will continue to accept vaping devices and cartridges at its drop off locations provided lithium batteries are removed.
