“We’ve got a few of these tonight that we’re trying to just clean up as we have lighter [council] agendas,” Mayor Jeff Cheney said during the meeting.
In a document prepared for council, city staff said they have begun evaluating existing specific use permits to find those that are no longer necessary because they stopped operating or were never executed.
The first specific use permit was initially approved in November 1984 to allow a day nursery operated by Frisco ISD on the south side of Hickory Street near Parkwood Boulevard. City staff brought it forward to be rescinded because a subsequent zoning ordinance change made the specific use permit unnecessary.
The second item rescinded by council was for a building materials and hardware establishment approved in June 1997. That business, which was to be on the north side of SH 121 near Hillcrest Road, was never built.
The final specific use permit rescinded was for a day care on Frisco ISD property on the south side of Hickory Street near Parkwood Boulevard. That permit was approved in August 2002. The district currently operates a day care at the location, but a later zoning change made the specific use permit no longer necessary.
