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.

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.

Development Site Plan Near Racetrac

Happy May to all!

I wanted to update the neighborhood about a site plan that was recently filed with the Plano Planning and Zoning Commission. The site plan calls for two restaurants to be built on the vacant lot located on the northeast side of Plano Parkway and Independence next to and north of the Race Trac gas station. The site plan locates a Golden Chick Restaurant north of and next to the Race Trac. There is also a proposed second location on the site plan that is east of and next to the Golden Chick Restaurant. That will probably be a Texadelphia Restaurant.

No zoning change is necessary as this proposed use is allowed by the retail zoning already in place on that corner. The site plan will be presented to the Plano Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday May 15, 2017. The site plan is available on our website.

If you have any questions please contact me at

Wishing all of you a Great Spring!
