No development on Peak One parcel

Marc Gregory
Frisco

I strongly oppose any plans regarding development of the Peak One parcel. This parcel is the only remaining open space south of Main Street and serves all of the residents of this area of the Town for this purpose. The Town Council and staff have unilaterally determined that the Peak One parcel should be developed. There has been no vote or decision by the Town residents to develop this property.

I urge every resident of the Town of Frisco to oppose development of the Peak One parcel. Not for trophy homes, nor for subsidized homes. The Peak One parcel should be used for no other purpose than as open space or park space for the residents of the Town.

To illustrate the absurdity of the proposal for development of the Peak One parcel, imagine for a moment that the proposal was to develop housing on the property that is now the Walter Byron Park. The outcry would be loud and unanimous to immediately halt any such plans. Your reaction should be the same for any discussion of development of the Peak One parcel.

The issue of subsidized housing is separate from any discussion regarding the use of the Peak One parcel. The Town Council and staff have attempted to make a discussion of housing needs into a discussion of development of the Peak One parcel. The issue of affordable housing does not require the use of the Peak One parcel. Other Town-owned property is available that is more appropriate for development, including the 9.4-acre parcel near the Transportation Center.

Please voice your opposition to any development of the Peak One parcel, and insist that the Town instead allocate funds to create a true park setting commensurate with the Walter Byron Park on the north side of Main Street.
