FRSICO (CBS 11 NEWS) - It’s no secret that Frisco is prime for a population boom with Toyota moving in nextdoor and the Dallas Cowboys moving headquarters there.

The city is preparing by planning for the future… all the way until 2035! But not without the help of its residents.

On Saturday night in Stone Briar Village, residents gathered to weigh in on city plans at the Frisco Community Workshop with tje Comprehensive Planning Advisory Committees and Development Services.

The city wanted residents to be a part of the process of planning.

Those who already in Frisco want to make sure the building boom enhances their life-style.

But they also want to make sure it doesn’t take anything away, either — like trees.

“Both sides of the tollroad, up-and-down Preston. We just need more trees,” Rob Ziney said.

Zivney joined about 80 other residents at the workshop to make recommendations for the next 20 years.

“We’ve had a chance to have our input, because you can’t complain if you have a chance to have input, so we are taking it,” he said.

One group recommended wider streets on undeveloped land that include designated bike lanes.

“Particularly on busy roads, have it physically separated,” Dawn Perkins explained. “Have a physical barrier so the bike lane is separate and safe.”

Frisco Mayor Maher Maso weighed in on the issue of a booming population to CBS 11 News.

“It’s impossible to build as you go,” Maso said.  “If we didn’t know where we were going to end up it would be impossible.”
