This plan will identify current uses and capacities for the different user groups and serve as a guiding document for future development and improvements. This comprehensive plan will detail and map current and future land use allocations for operations, trails, pathways, parking, storage, recreation, and services. It will include a specific and prioritized implementation framework for the Town to use over time. Overall, the plan will create a long-term vision and plan that will position the Town to manage these resources and funds in such a way that the Peninsula Recreation Area (PRA) and surrounding areas can grow and be managed to the highest level of economic, social, and environmental sustainability for future generations to come.
Vibrant Recreation is one of the strategic priorities for Frisco Town Council; this includes evaluating current and future use of the PRA. The Lose Design will evaluate the current facilities, amenities, programs and revenue streams; they will also seek additional opportunities for new revenue streams, futures uses of facilities and propose recommendations to present to Frisco Town Council for short and long term prioritization.
There have been a variety of planning efforts of the PRA over the years. There is value in each of the individual plans, however, there is not one comprehensive plan and vision for the PRA. In August of 2019, Lose Design Firm was hired to complete this project.
Lose Design Firm will review the previous plans and project files that have been assembled over the years, including:
Stakeholder/staff interviews consisting of a variety of users including citizens, stakeholders, staff, concessionaires, etc. were held on September 25, 2019. An advisory group was identified from these stakeholder/staff interviews and this group met two times with Lose Design; November 5, 2019 and January 16, 2020. A Community Conversation was held on March 11, 2020 to gather the community’s reaction to the initial concept design presented by Lose Design. You can see the presentation from this meeting below. Prior to these dates, community conversations, charrettes and outreach took place during many of the projects and plans listed above.
Lose Design presented initial concept design plans/maps at the community meeting on March 11, 2020.
