We were once told that the contractor that put in the underground water line would be at least reseeding the median along Eldorado in front of Dominion and Latera. As of recent, the median is still just a patch of dirt and weeds. Since Eldorado is considered a major artery for Frisco and the first major street entering Frisco from the North and from McKinney, would it not make sense to at least make the median look more presentable for the residents and visitors to our city? When will the contractor be finishing what they started? And what are the city's plan to make this stretch of Frisco more presentable?

Thanks for your note regarding the medians along ElDorado Parkway, east of Preston Road towards Hillcrest Road.
I too share your disappointment in the condition of the median along this area. We had hoped to have more results from the water line contractor in this regard, but have not been successful to date.
Based on its appearance and location along these two major thorofares, our staff has been working together with the Engineering Services Department and have placed the development of the ElDorado Parkway medians as one of the projects that we will be developing this upcoming year.
Factors that will influence development of these medians will be water availability at that time and the selection of drought hearty trees and turf material.
More information regarding this will be forthcoming over the next several months as we lead up to the fall. Development would typically begin in the upcoming late fall and early winter.
Should you have any additional questions regarding this, please feel free to let me or our staff know.
