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
»Agree with both Joyce & Phyllis. We have a lot of great roads in Frisco but Main street & 423 look like they will always be problem spots for us. If we want a vibrant downtown/Frisco Square/museum district, we need to find some better solutions for the East side to travel west, especially once Brinkman Ranch develops. No easy solutions to this problem.
Even after 423 is widened by the state, the population growth in Little Elm and along 380 will clog 423 because so many people will try to travel down the only major N/S thoroughfare between I-35 and DNT. No easy solutions here either.
Also, based on current state plans, 380 will be a future congested highway with many frequent stoplights. Need some creative road solutions to allow Frisco citizens to drive along south side of 380's future developments without having to get on 380 and without clogging Rockhill.
»As people mover technologies improve and become more cost effective, we must have planned ahead for the time when they make sense for Frisco. If not, we run the risk of 20 years from now having no where to add them and losing job centers to other cities that planned better for these future technologies. In the future we want our citizens and visitors to be able to move easily among all of the awesome developments we currently have and those that we attract to Frisco because we have a plan to take advantage of new technologies when they become cost effective. Buses & trolleys are only a stop gap measure, not a long term solution because land owners & developers want the certainty of fixed routes, not a bus route that can be easily changed or cancelled.
»No matter how dense we develop along the DNT, the vast majority of Frisco's land will always be great single family neighborhoods, which most citizens seem to support. The advantage will be great suburban living, but close to the new suburban version of more "urban like" amenities - a vibrant, connected downtown/Frisco Square/Toyota Stadium/Grand Park central business district, Wade Park, Cowboy's Alley, and future mixed use along the northern stretch of DNT. Even if we have to drive from our current neighborhoods, it should be a relatively short commute versus having to drive south to other cities.
»Being in the path of growth & a great place to live, large numbers of people will move to Frisco and to our neighbors to the north and west. Someday we will need more transportation options besides the car. We must keep the door open by preserving corridors for future mass transit, possibly using future technology that is better than today's commuter rail and more cost effective than light rail. If we grow as an employment center and entertainment/eating
»Yes, continue to encourage developers to create more car-optional areas. Instead of traditional strip malls and stand alone fast food, we want more mixed-use areas where we can drive to, park once, and walk among all of the restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues without having to walk or drive across parking lots. Even better, design more neighborhoods around these areas so we can walk or bike to them without getting in a car.
»Many of us make a longer drive for our commute so we can live in a more rural, open, and friendly Frisco. "If we wanted to live in Plano, we would have moved there." Perfectly stated Anthony.
»This is key. It is critical to develop below the limits of the environment and it's resources. It won't matter how many green spaces, trees, and "landscaped" business parks are planned if we don't have enough water to keep them alive, (let alone our homes and families).
