1. Plano City Council to consider new Mustang Square proposal
The council on Monday will consider a zoning change for Mustang Square, the site of a proposed mixed-use development that failed to get the necessary number of votes from the Plano City Council in 2017.
The new proposal has ditched multifamily apartments in its concept plan and has opted for 95 single-family townhouses instead.
The new concept includes plans for a food truck park, movie theater, office space and an assembly hall alongside the townhouses.
The original concept proposed roughly a year ago would have offered a mix of office space, retail, restaurants, hotels, single-family residences, apartments, townhouse and an assisted living facility.
The council will convene for its regular meeting Monday evening at the Plano Municipal Center, 1520 K Ave., Plano.
2. Bike-sharing ordinance to go before council
The Plano City Council will consider an ordinance that would require bike-sharing companies to obtain a permit before stationing their bikes throughout the city.
If approved, the bike permits would expire at the end of 2018, and the city would then reevaluate the bike-sharing permit program, a letter addressed to the city manager from Director of Special Projects Peter Braster said.
3. Plano Senior Center to close March 1 for renovations, expansion

On March 5, the Wellness Center offices will relocate to a trailer outside of the senior center during the construction of the new facility.
