In 2009, the City of Keene wanted to annex seven parcels of land to its South, but was met with strong opposition from the parcels' residents. Judge John Neill of the 18th.

On March 10, 2010, 25 residents petitioned a specially called meeting of the Johnson County Commissioners Court to become incorporated as a municipality. The name "Coyote Flats" was submitted at the meeting.
