Select city meetings—including those for Plano City Council and the Plano Planning and Zoning Commission—will be hosted at the Davis Library, which is located at 7501-B Independence Parkway, starting in April.

The meetings will move because of planned renovations to the Sen. Florence Shapiro Council Chamber within the Plano Municipal Center. The renovations will cost a little over $6 million and will be funded through the 2021 bond and Public Education Government funds.

According to the city’s website, upgrades are planned to make the council chambers more compatible with the Americans with Disabilities Act, more secure and more up-to-date with audiovisual technology.

Planning and zoning commission meetings will take place in the Davis Library starting April 1 while the first council meeting in the new location is scheduled for April 8. Individuals can also expect varying levels of impact to the parking lot at the Plano Municipal Center while renovations are underway.

Any other meetings that typically take place within the Sen. Florence Shapiro Council Chamber will post new meeting locations on their agendas, per the website.
