I am currently building a house in a new neighborhood off of 720. One of the main reasons that we choose Frisco, was the passing of an ordinance requiring housing to be 100% brick. Much to our dissappointment, there seem to be several houses currently under construction with hardyplank instead of brick.
The hardyplank is located on the front portion of the second story. Does this unsightly construction meet Frisco's building standards?

Thank you for your inquiry. The Ordinance states that exterior facades in residential districts will be (100%) masonary, unless otherwise specified in Comprehensive Zoning Ord. No.00-11-01. Cementatious fiber board may constitute (50%)of stories other than the first story. It may also be used for architectal features, roof dormers, garage door headers on rear entry garages,columns,bay windows,chimneys not part of an exterior wall,and other architectal features. All continuous walls from the foundation to the roof are required to be masonary. If you have other questions, please call this department at 972-335-5580.

What about the David Weekly homes being built off 2943 in or near Griffin Park? Many of them are one story but seem to not have a masonary facade.

You are correct. This planned development was approved by P&Z and the City Council. PD-155, Ordinance 00-09-33 allows the exteriors to be 100% Hardiplank siding or similar cementatious siding material approved by the Building Official.
