The reduction in multifamily presented at Monday's Plano Planning and Zoning Commission meeting corresponds with a 30 percent increase in the number of single-family residential uses in the plan. The changes were made after the city staff analyzed feedback from Plano residents, as well as elected officials who offered direction to the staff in a joint work session in January.
Planning and zoning commissioners seemed satisfied with the latest proposal and offered little additional direction at Monday's meeting. The revised draft will then be presented at the April 2 planning and zoning meeting for consideration.
The proposal highlights the reduction of the number of multifamily units in the Oak Point area, which was 1,600 units in a previous draft. The new proposal reduces that number to 990 units, while increasing the number of single-family units by 30 percent from the previous draft.
A map included in the proposal does not include an east-west thoroughfare that would have connected Legacy Drive and Los Rios Boulevard—an item that had been included in the previous draft. The future of that proposed roadway has not been determined. Council members and planning commissioners in January failed to reach a consensus on whether it should be part of the final plan.
