Holding land for development is not a town function

The Frisco Town Council’s decision to rezone Frisco-owned property behind Safeway is disturbing. The property’s zoning for parks and recreation use was a legitimate governmental function.

However, acquiring and selling real estate as a “revenue generating” project is not. It raises the question of which comes first: government to provide a place for people to come, or people who need a government to function as a society.

Why is Frisco competing with a private enterprise? Why is Frisco reducing open space? Why is Frisco, by engaging in commercial activity, encouraging a larger population, thereby decreasing availability of affordable housing?

Answers please! Taxpayers are forced to pay their food money to work at cross purposes through Frisco’s shenanigans.
