There is a sign on a dirt road behind the Frisco Airport. It states future site of Frisco City Park. What is the time table to complete this park?

Thank you for your message regarding the park site that is located near the former jetport property.
If I am correct, this property is our Southwest Community Park. Located at the eastern edge of Lone Star Ranch, this 137 acre community park is bordered by Lebanon Road on the south and Fourth Army Memorial Road on its eastern perimeter.
A park master plan for this park was just recently completed by the planning firm of Newman, Jackson and Bieberstein. Approved by the Community Development Corporation and the Parks and Recreation Board during their April 11, 2002 joint meeting, this park's master plan will be considered by the City Council in May.
Once the master plan has been approved by the City Council, development of the park can be considered by the Community Development Corporation. While there are not funds currently assigned for the Southwest Community Park, staff is currently looking at initial trail development at the park for this upcoming fall. Our staff hopes to be working with volunteer assistance to develop some initial trail improvements until permanent development has been determined.
Should you have any additional questions regarding this or any other park site in the city, please let us know.

The park that I believe you are referring to is the "Southwest Community Park". The Master Plan for this park was approved by the Parks & Rec Board and the Community Development Corporation (CDC) at a joint meeting last Thursday April 11. The City Council must now approve the Master Plan before the park is placed on the "To Do" list.
Funding then becomes the main concern to allow construction. A proposed fall bond election may provide funds for this type of development. If this is something you believe should be included in a proposed bond election you should contact your Park & Rec. Board and City Council representitives to let them know it should be included.
