Frisco Comprehensive Plan Update
We’re looking to engage the Frisco community to solicit feedback from a broad group of residents. Suggest ideas and leave your feedback. Posts will be reviewed by stakeholders to help guide decision-making on a variety of issues.
Most Active Ideas
»This would be much better if the street were a landscaped and fountained pedestrian mall and the parking were behind the buildings.
»Rather than busses, this is the kind of thing that should connect the old downtown to Simpson Plaza, and then continuing from Simpson Plaza to Grand Park. This would help build a sense of community and connectedness in Frisco.
»This seems more like a fair or festival kind of set up. I'm sure it could be accommodated in Grand Park, once it is built out.
»My family would love a major mini-golf venue, on the order of Pirate's Cove in Orlando, perhaps in conjunction with other outdoor entertainments, such as go-kart racing. This would be best along route 380, possibly near the new development along the tollway. Such a venue would draw people to the new mixed use shopping area and would attract people from the shopping area, especially if the two were connected with attractive walking trails.
»I'd like to see something like this in Frisco, but do we have enough producers to make it a viable enterprise? With Whole Foods coming, we probably are okay with the farmer's market on Saturdays.
»I cannot see this anywhere in Frisco. We don't have a major river or other source of water to feed such a feature.
»Landscaping just for the beauty of it would make everyone even more proud to be a Frisco resident. The flip side is maintaining these features costs money. Building a park and then letting it be often poorly cleaned and ill-maintained (e.g., Central Park near the mall) is not building city pride.
»Anthony is spot on. Landscape features like this one are uplifting and make people want to enjoy the outdoors, maybe meeting neighbors in the process. Hopefully Grand Park will have features like this one. The regional parks could also benefit by having lovely landscaped areas instead of just one playing field after another.
