Frisco City Council members tabled an ordinance that would rezone a 75.8-acre plot of land from agriculture to highway during an Aug. 16 meeting.

The item was tabled until the council's Sept. 6 meeting. When council members reached the item, Mayor Jeff Cheney recommended tabling it. He said questions about the item were asked during executive session, and city staff members need time to follow up on those questions. According to the council agenda, City Council had received legal advice regarding the zoning request during their executive session Aug. 16.

Council members approved tabling the rezoning request unanimously without further discussion.

The request to rezone what the owner called a “high-end-type development,” was first approved by the Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission during a July 26 meeting. Located between the Dallas North Tollway and Frisco Street, highway zoning allows for a variety of land uses, such as office and retail space, according to the council agenda. The planning and zoning commission initially voted 4-0 to approve the zoning ordinance.
