Frisco looks to lift outdoor establishment moratorium

Frisco Town Council will consider adopting the final version of the outdoor commercial establishment regulations at its meeting tonight.

The approval comes after significant conversation among council members who wanted more clarity in the policy upon first reading. It was passed with the expectation their concerns would be addressed.

If passed, the Feb. 28 moratorium placed on approving new applications for outdoor retail and food sales would be lifted.

Revisions to the policy include greater specificity on what may and may not be allowed, limitations on the number of uses at a given time and place and other limitations related to the impacts on the town’s public and adjacent property owners. Operations must be located on private property, the ordinance clarifies.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Frisco Town Hall, and is preceded by a 3:15 p.m. work session in which council members plan to discuss progress in the planning department, refresh on current and potential water issues, receive an update – with action alternatives – on the Main Street redesign, and receive training alongside the Frisco Planning Commission on open meetings law.
