What are the plans for the large empty lot next to (north of) Isbell Elementary? It appears there may be some sort of park or athletic fields going in. If so, when will they be completed?

Thank you for your note regarding the Hunters Creek neighborhood park that lies adjacent and north of Isabell Elementary School.

The master plan process for this park will take place during this year (2005). Our staff will be working with a landscape architectural firm to develop the master plan for this park site. We anticipate that these services will begin within the next 2-3 months and that the actual time frame in which the master plan is developed will be an additional 3-4 months.

During this period of time, the consultant will conduct various meetings with staff and the Parks and Recreation Board as well as conducting a couple of public meetings at Isabell Elementary in order to seek input from nearby residents of the park.

The consultant will also provide information to the Board on potential cost for the park elements that are placed onto this master plan.

Because this is a neighborhood park site, there will be no lighted athletic ballfields or game fields that would be placed on this site. Typical neighborhood park elements would include, but not be limited to such things as practice backstops, practice soccer goals, a pre-school playground system to compliment the older child playground at the elementary school, pavilion, picnic tables and grills, sidewalk trail around the perimeter of the park, paved parking, landscaping, etc.

Development of this neighborhood park is identified for 2006, with a proposed funding level of $1.0 million dollars.

For more information regarding the timing of the master planning process or the development of the park, feel free to contact me or our staff at any time.

I live in Hunters Creek and have never been notified of a meeting for the planning of a park near Isbell Elem. Is the planning process completed?

Ms. Ortega,

Thanks for your note regarding the master planning process for the Hunters Creek park site. Your note is actually very timely as we will be having a public meeting on Thursday, August 18, 2005 to begin discussions on the park and seek input from residents of that park site.

This first meeting will take place at the Frisco Chamber of Commerce (6842 Main Street) beginning at 6:30 pm. At that meeting there will be staff members and the landscape architect consultant who will be designing the park (Halff and Associates).

This meeting will be a great opportunity to provide input on this neighborhood park and we look forward to seeing you at the meeting. Should you have any questions regarding this, please feel free to let me or our staff know.

Thanks again,

Rick Wieland
Director of Parks and Recreation
