i see a lot of construction of new communities happening in Frisco. I was wondering, how many new houses are being built in Frisco and whether the permit has been given for these to be built by 2013 or staggered for couple of years.

In 2012, there were 1,579 new single-family homes permitted, some of these are still being built today. These homes typically require 3 to 6 months to complete. There has been 330 single-family permits issued for the first two months of 2013. The number of permits issued for construction are driven by the market demand and are only limited by the developed lots available.

Thanks,

Does this mean that no consideration is given to infrastructure capabilities or the availability (or lack of) of water? I had thought that some capacity planning played into how many new construction projects could be authorized?

Thank you,

We have a total pumping capacity of about 127 million gallons per day (mgd). We are currently averaging about 20 mgd. Last summer our maximum daily usage was about 55 mgd. We have another pump station on our master water plan for an additional 50 mgd of daily pumping capacity when needed. Current capacity and expansion capability will provide enough water for Frisco for our build out population of about 280,000 people.

Thank you for sharing that we have the pumping capacity. That is very good planning on the City's part. However, at issue is more the availability of water to be pumped rather than the ability to pump it if it were available. We are going into Stage 3 restrictions very early this year. We obviously do not have enough water to sustain the current population. Yet, we continue to expand. My question is more along the lines of why are we expanding our need for water when we don't have enough water for the current need? It would seem prudent to postpone expansion until additional water resources become available.
Thank you

We are taking all water conservation measures into consideration during time. Frisco joins its neighbors and other member cities of the North Texas Municipal Water District by moving to Stage 3 water restrictions and employing similar response strategies.
NTMWD has a long range water supply plan that will meet future needs through 2060.
