How is it that even with 1% of sales tax marked specifically for these purposes Frisco is unable to attract bluechip corporate offices to the city whereas Plano keeps winning Toyota, FedEx and the likes? Aren't we better off attracting 5000+ jobs with Toyota rather than 100 jobs with the Cowboys?

Frisco made a significantly larger offer to Toyota than Plano. It is apparent that Toyota was attracted to the environment being created in the Legacy Business Park, like the Shops at Legacy and the new development on the Penney’s property. The new Cowboys’ project will provide a similar development in Frisco and will serve as an equally appealing environment which will help in the recruitment of corporate headquarters similar to the ones you mention above.

What is Frisco doing to create a better environment? I mentioned months ago that Legacy Drive in Frisco is in poor shape and only two lanes. This easily could have been a factor. I was told it does not get enough traffic and no plans to expand it. Here we are months later and Legacy is getting worse. So what is the plan? When will Frisco stop being focused on projects that can't be supported by infrastructure?

The City of Frisco has no immediate plans to widen Legacy between Warren and SH 121.

With respect to the last question in the posting:

The City of Frisco constructs, or requires to be constructed, all infrastructure that is necessary to support development, including roadways and water/wastewater facilities.
