Monday, January 13 Frisco Hosting Open House About Public-Private Housing Partnership

From 4:00 – 6:00pm on Monday, January 13, 2020, the Town of Frisco is hosting a community open house regarding the potential for a public-private housing partnership. This open house will be at the First and Main Building at 108 Main Street, and community members are invited to drop in anytime during the two hour open house to participate.

The Town of Frisco is seeking public input, feedback and ideas about a potential public-private partnership for housing on Town and privately owned properties on Granite Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. The private property owner at 207 Granite Street has indicated an interest in partnering with the Town to develop the privately owned lot and the Town owned lot together.

Frisco Town Council made housing one of their highest priority strategic goals for 2020 and beyond. They have long been invested in meeting our community’s housing goals through many different approaches, including public-private partnerships, which saw significant success in the Peak One Neighborhood,” stated Frisco Town Manager Nancy Kerry. “The Town Council and Housing Task Force identified these properties for a potential project, and we’re excited to be moving forward from a proposal. We want the community to be involved at the very beginning of this potential project; so please come to the open house on Monday.”

In 2017, this vacant land on Granite Street was identified by the Town’s Housing Task Force and Frisco Town Council as a high priority site for potential housing. This open house will be an opportunity for community members to participate in this project very early on and weigh in on how this potential project could meet community goals.
