The following comes from the President of Plano Citizens Coalition. This was published in their newsletter.
Change is difficult for some of us to manage, though some seem to thrive on it. For those of us in opposition to the development of high density apartments in the City of Plano, we don’t regard these additions as a plus for the City of Excellence. Working hard to obtain the Comprehensive Plan over two years didn’t draw a line in the sand to slow high density apartment growth, as evidenced by approvals of the Fry’s redevelopment and the complete re-zoning of the Haggard Farm area of the city, etc. Another large area of land in East Plano spotlighted by the city several years ago, Lavon Farms, now appears to soon be on the re-zoning list. Recently, the owner of the farm, Mr. Todd Moore, teamed up with Trammel Crow to present early plans to neighbors in that community. The following comments were received recently from an East Plano neighbor attending the second community meeting. She never heard about the first meeting but lives in the area.
There were eleven neighbors attending the meeting from three neighborhoods. Only five attended the first meeting on September 6. Todd Moore has asked Trammel Crow to help him develop a plan for his property. They are partnering with him in the multi family trust.
