Regarding Main Street. I had understood that the city wanted to keep this part of town historic and have the same appeal as downtown McKinney. Is this still the plan? Should we expect more dollar stores and gas stations along this road? Are you planning on trying to become a "Main Street City?"

We are working with the downtown merchants to enhance the historic nature of the downtown. Coordination with property owners and downtown merchants is a key part of the job duties of a new grants coordinator position approved for the FY2005 budget which was just approved. Part of that will be working towards the 'Main Street' designation you referenced.

I recently moved to the exquisite City of Frisco and was interested in opening a night club on Main Street. Who would I have to talk to to make this happen or does Frisco not have zoning for such a venue?

I am not sure if you are planning on just a club or if this will be a restaurant and club so I will try and answer from both aspects.

Restaurants that sell alcoholic beverages are allowed by right in the Original Town Commercial, Retail, Commercial-1, and Commercial-2 zoning districts. The term "by right" referes to the fact that no special zoning or specific use permits are necessary. These districts are located in various places along Main Street and FM 3537 from Custer Road on the east to FM 423 on the west.

If you are referring to a club with alcohol sales but without foods sales, this type of business can locate in the same districts as indicated above. However, an application for a specific use permit must be approved by the City Council in order to do so. If you are interested in finding out more about this please feel free to contact the Planning Department at 972.335.5580 and talk with any of the planners on staff. Thank you.
