Frisco P&Z considers Wal-Mart at FM 423 and Stonebrook Parkway

The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing Nov. 11 to discuss a proposed Wal-Mart at the intersection of FM 423 and Stonebrook Parkway.

The proposal is to rezone the southeast corner of the intersection from Agricultural and Retail to Planned Development-Retail for a big box retail store.

Of the nearly 28 acres considered for rezoning, Wal-Mart plans to have about 18 acres dedicated to the store and gas pumps. The nearly 10 remaining acres will be used for passive open space and to retain a pond on the property.

Wal-Mart representatives have held two meetings with residents in the neighborhoods near the location to present the proposed store. After the meetings, neighborhood representatives compiled a list of requested concessions for the store, including reducing the size of the store and limiting the hours for truck deliveries and pick-ups.

More than 1,200 residents have signed a petition opposing the 190,000-square-foot store, asking instead for a smaller community retail store.

As it stands, rezoning the southeast corner of FM 423 and Stonebrook Parkway would not comply with Frisco's current Future Land Use policy.

The P&Z meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. in the city council chambers at 6101 Frisco Square Blvd.
