Please read and share this urgent message from our friends at BurytheLines.org:

DEADLINE of 2:00 PM TODAY (Tuesday, December 1, 2015) – PLEASE SEE BELOW AND FORWARD TO ALL FRISCO RESIDENTS

Thank you for your continued support for Burying The Lines.  CoServ/Brazos Electric is still considering 120-foot power lines down Main Street or Stonebrook Parkway.  Our City Leadership committed to burying these lines in their resolution filed in September 2013, please see the below link for the resolution:

http://interchange.puc.state.tx.us/WebApp/Interchange/Documents/41808_335_767752.PDF

Our City Leadership is currently considering matters relating to the settlement of this issue.  The deadline to agree to finance the project is 12/17.  City Council will be meeting tomorrowevening (Tuesday, December 1st) in an Executive Session to discuss.   It is extremely important that we let our elected officials know that we hold them accountable to honor their commitment and to provide full financial support.

We are so close to getting these lines buried but we need to let council know that it lies with them to get this resolved successfully. 

Please email the Mayor, Frisco City Council, and Senator Jane Nelson’s office to let them know how important this is to you and your community.  Please see the below for email addresses.  If you are unable to send your own personable email, A Call To Action Email will be sent out tomorrow with instructions on how to complete.

Frisco’s Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee (follow them on Facebook) is hard at work! You may remember a previous post about the committee, and I hope you participated in their survey at the time. According to this informative article by Allen Biehl for NeighborsGo Frisco, we have another chance to have our voices heard.

This online survey gives us the opportunity to prioritize top issues for Frisco’s future development. It only takes a moment to complete, and you don’t have to fill in any of the personal information requested if you prefer to remain anonymous. After you complete the survey, you can see the results and learn how your priorities compare with your fellow Frisco residents. Please, participate in the survey!
