The Town of Frisco is embarking on a project to develop master plans for four of our community parks: Pioneer, Meadow Creek, Walter Byron, and the Old Town Hall & Community Center Parks. These plans will guide future investment and improvements. We need feedback from citizens to ensure that these plans reflect the desires of the community.
In the 2019 budget, Town Council approved funds for park improvements. As part of the community outreach process for the Community Plan update, a special public meeting was held on November 7, 2018. This meeting was focused on defining the character, opportunities, and challenges at each of Frisco’s community parks. Outcomes from the meeting included a prioritization for improvements at four parks including: Walter Byron, Meadow Creek, Pioneer Park and Old Town Hall and Community Center Parks. In order to thoughtfully plan for upgrades and improvements, staff is conducting a master planning process for each of these parks. Frisco has contracted with Norris Design to help facilitate the planning process.
Major planning efforts for both the Frisco Marina and the Peninsula Recreation Area have taken place over the past couple of years and facility improvements for both of these areas are currently underway. More information on planning and development at these facilities can be found below:
The Town will be hosting a series of open houses to solicit community input on enhancements for four neighborhood parks. The open houses will be held on location in order to focus attention on the specific conditions of that park. Participants will be asked to share their opinion on current facilities and ideas for enhancements. The meetings will be held from 4:00 – 6:00 pm on four consecutive Wednesdays during the month of May beginning with Pioneer Park on May 8, 2019.
Attend one park event or all four, your ideas for each area are important! As a thank you for your time, for each event you attend, you will be entered into a drawing for a free pontoon boat rental at the Frisco Bay Marina for summer 2019.
If you can’t make it to one of these park “side” meetings, then please provide your comments and ideas to Susan Lee.
