Plano's historic Collinwood House could soon be relocated to a nearby property, putting to rest speculation the building could be demolished after voters last year voted down a bond item to save it.

Plano City Council on Monday approved a bid to relocate the Collinwood House from its current site near Windhaven Parkway, which is planned to be converted into a new public park, to an undeveloped property owned by the Haggard family. The city would pay $250,000 to Haggard Enterprises to move the 19th-century building.

The city has planned to develop the property into Windhaven Meadows Park, a sprawling project that is expected to include an all-abilities playground, among other amenities.

Plano residents voted down a bond proposition in the May 2017 elections to preserve the Collinwood House at its current site. Since then, the city has been determining whether to relocate or demolish the building.

The city has outlined two potential paths along which to move the house to its new site. They are depicted in the map below.
