Update for Collin Creek Mall Redevelopment

Longtime developer Sam Ware has Collin Creek Mall under contract with plans to finalize the acquisition by the end of the year. Ware and his team plan to make the property more efficient until they can execute on a bigger redevelopment in two years that is expected to cost at least $1 billion. More details to come when available from the City. More information is available from The Dallas Business Journal if you’re a subscriber.

Notice of Public Meeting and Public Hearing (MSD)

The Texas Legislature in 2003 passed the legislation that allows a landowner or city to request a Municipal Setting Designation (MSD) if the ground water under a landowner’s property is contaminated. The MSD allows the landowner to not remediate the underground water if no one is using it for drinking water or irrigation.

All of the drinking water in Plano comes from the North Texas Municipal Water District which does not use underground water for anything. All of our water, drinking or otherwise, comes only from Lake Lavon and Lake Texoma.

Attend the public meetings on August 8, 2017 at 7:00  p.m. at the Plano Municipal Center Building Inspections Training Room, 1520 K Ave. and the City council meeting on August 14, 2017 at 7:00 the City Council Chambers  and ask any questions you may have.

The mailer which was sent to homeowners inside the required area is attached. Click here to view.


City Council at the August 14, 2017 meeting tabled the approval of an ordinance to establish 2300 West Plano Parkway (the old Arco then Perot Systems then Dell and now NTTData property) to their meeting on August 28, 2016.

Evasive Dogs again


Happy winter to all!

The City of Plano has asked the HOAs to alert all residents to be on the lookout for 2 dogs that have bitten several people in Plano. They have asked all residents to CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY IF YOU SEE THESE DOGS! The dogs have been on the loose for several months. One dog is mostly black & is an Australian Cattle Dog & the other is a mostly white & black spotted mixed breed. They are medium sized dogs.

DO NOT APPROACH THESE DOGS! The dogs are very stealthy & have managed to allude all attempts at capture. Please be aware the black Australian Cattle Dog has bitten people from behind on the lower leg while they have been jogging or moving. This fits with the Australian Cattle Dog’s instinct to herd cattle, which they do by biting the heels of the cattle. Please be aware of your surroundings when you are jogging or walking briskly, as the black dog has surprised many who have been bitten.

Again, if you see these dogs, the City wants residents to CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY! DO NOT call Animal Services or any other city dept. before you CALL 911! The City wants to get these dogs off the streets & needs the public’s help in locating them as quickly as possible!

PLEASE CLICK ON THE CITY WEBSITE LISTED BELOW for photos of the dogs & much more information about the dogs.
If clicking the link doesn’t work, please copy and paste the link into your browser.

Please be alert to your surroundings when you are outside & CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY if you see these dogs!

Stay safe!

Alert! Feral Dogs in the Neighborhood

Robert received the following message from a resident so please be aware and notify the city if you see:

Robert, You may already know all this but two feral dogs have been in our neighborhood for 4 days. The black one (cattle dog mix) bit a resident jogging and bit her deeply in the leg. She is undergoing the rabies shots now. A white pit bull mix is running with the black dog. These dogs have now crossed over 15th street and moving into Dallas North Estates and Pitman Creek Estates. Animal Control has been doing active patrols but no capture as yet. They are putting out baited live traps at night but no success. Residents are urged to call Plano Animal Services at 972-769-4360 if they see either dog. Option 8 for non-emergency and option 10 for aggressive animals.
