Most Active Ideas
»The library know need to improve in cuality customer service. Better attitude and better attention without distinction (race,ages). Period
»I just continue to grow more and more frustrated about the significante expansión of fast food etearies in Frisco. Is it truly necessary? How can Frisco develop a different identity if this goles on and on and on? What messages are we sending, and very clearly, to our kids? Does healthy eating count? Can you all please reflect on this? How many more Chick-fil-As do we need? Have you considered seriously the environmental effects of having to deal with the huge amount of trash they produce? Not to mention we probably do not need any more Walmarts....
»The Comp Plan is a guidance document that sets out an overall vision. The related Principles laid out in the Plan (see Chapter 2) include:
- Guiding Principle #2
- Ecology & Natural Resources Principles 1, 2, 4 & 9The related Implementation Strategies (see Chapter 10) include G01, R02, R03, R06, F02, C03, & P10. They include updating the master plans and ordinances that define the methods for accomplishing the vision established in the Comp Plan, including the subdivision ordinance, the zoning ordinance, etc. These plans, ordinances, and policies are where the "how-to" details are worked out. The update to the Parks and Open Space Master Plan, for instance, has been underway concurrently with the update of the Comp Plan, and does address many of the details that you were looking for; the Zoning Ordinance speaks to buffers of creeks, the Hike and Bike Plan set out trails (especially along major creeks), etc.
»As the city urbanizes, I'd like to see more emphasis on green corridors and habitat preservation. The master plan has a chapter on ecology and its importance to quality of life in the city. What I don't see is a plan. In other words, the draft has all the right verbiage without actionable steps the city plans to take to create/protect green space and habitat.Streams and creeks are natural green corridors. Does the city have plans to ensure buffer zones around these corridors? Tayches Trails is an example of one such buffer, but even then, it is a much too narrow natural habitat buffer zone.Additionally, are there any plans to ensure retention of blackland prairie habitat?I see a lot of emphasis on green buildings, which is wonderful. More emphasis on green spaces would be even better.
»The future rail route shown in Figure 9-1, as currently envisioned, would go south to the Downtown Carrollton station, providing connections with both the DART and DCTA rail lines.
»Figure 9-1 Transit Circulator Plan 2015 shows the "Future Transit Route" and its planed "Stops" which coincide with the route of an existing railroad track that extends south of SH-121 into Plano. Are there any thoughts to interconnect this "Future Transit Route" with the DART system?
»PP15-0002 could not be found near Eldorado Market place. PSP14-0031 could be related to Fidelis Property
»NO - the Comprehensive Plan does not change the zoning. Most of the C-1 parcels adjacent to Eldorado MarketPlace are currently under review, with retail buildings (PSP14-0031 & PP15-0002).
»The allowed uses are listed in the Zoning Ordinance Use Chart - online at http://www.friscotex
»'Business Park' doesn't mean only those large campus-style office parks like Hall and Duke Office Parks, but can also include smaller professional office buildings and supporting uses. "Typical uses will include professional offices and limited supporting retail and restaurant uses to support a range of professional activities." The office parcels can be developed with any of the uses allowed in the O-2 district, and it is possible that they will be multiple story office buildings. Parking, building heights, and other site planning issues will be determined when a submittal is received.
»Question Received: "I love the plan in general, but have a concern about the Urban Center on the Brinkmann Ranch parcel. Why is it UC there?"Answer: That parcel has development entitlements through it's current zoning and development agreement that include single-family, multi-family, commercial, and mixed-use. The Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee elected to show Urban Center as a color to represent the variety of uses allowed, but have capped it at what is currently allowed. This brings the Comp Plan into alignment with the current zoning (no net change).
