Council approves zoning for college

The Frisco City Council paved the way on Nov. 19 for the possible construction of a private Bible university on the southwest side of Preston Road and the future Rockhill Parkway.

Dallas-based Criswell College is looking for a place to expand to a university model, and the council approved a request to amend the zoning to allow for a college to be constructed on the 181 acres of land currently zoned for single family/patio home/urban village.

If the college decides to build, the preliminary site plan would go back before the council for approval.

The property will not be allowed to be a mix of zoning. It will be zoned for either the college or single family/patio home/urban village.
