»These are some pretty lofty ideals. They could be very difficult to attain with the rapid rate of growth Frisco has, and the choices that have been made to lure businesses to Frisco may not be in line with the goals listed here. While I applaud them, and hope maybe to see some of these actually happen, What I've seen in the past 5 years doesn't demonstrate any of these to me, and cities cannot turn on a dime to uphold new guidelines and mores. For example, I would love to see the city insist on the use of electric or renewable fuels for city vehicles, and for its contractors- specifically trash and recycling pickup going on throughout the city every day. But those long-term purchases and agreements were made without such provisions in place. So it will take many years before any new plan, focusing on maximizing natural resources, can be acted on in large and effective ways. However, I still wish it comes to be, and that it informs and affects future decisions.
»We need to look at allowing more business development on the east side of Preston Road on Main Street so that live on the east side have easier access to fine dining, kid activity locations, similar to what has developed west of the Tollway on Main Street. The traffic jam through historic downtown Frisco makes it difficult for those on the east side to get to Frisco Square as well as businesses west of the Tollway.
»I agree with Anthony. Its about the quality of living in Frisco, not the quantity of stuff you can cram in. Beautifully tree-lined streets, beautiful park areas are reinvigorating and healthy in a number of ways. I would love to see this added to the mix use, high pedestrian areas. I also want to see higher level shopping and dining options! The LAST thing Frisco needs are more fast food places, bland food chains and another Walmart. I would personally love to have an HEB Central Market for grocery shopping! Whole Foods is a step in the right direction and a Central Market would compliment that. (Maybe it could go at the other end of the tollway in the development going in on 380?)
