What is the current status of an airport in Frisco? I'm aware that the city master plan has stated that it is interested in having one in our city. Have any new sites been looked at?

A small airport was built south of Main Street and west of Legacy Drive in the late 1980's. The airport never had the success that was predicted. And residential development occured in the vicinity that was opposed to the airport. Also, the airport runway did not have the runway length necessary for larger planes and did not have the room to expand. The airport was closed a few years ago and the runway removed.

The City does not have any plans to build an airport.
