The wide medians on Eldorado Rd. between Preston and Hillcrest appear to be mowed pretty regularly; however, they look to be very weed infested. Are/will the medians be weed treated shortly?
Also, with regard to the Eldorado median closest to Turf road at the east Dominion at Panther Creek entrance, a large chunk of concrete is missing near the beginning of the left turn lane onto Turf. Can the City please repair it? Both the median weeds and damage are real eye-soars and don't reflect well on Frisco. Thkx in advance.

The City does not apply post or pre-emergent herbicides to medians for weed control. This policy is in place for both environmental reasons and budgetary considerations. With well over two hundred acres of developed medians throughout the city, the cost to treat medians effectively would be a huge expense. I will add that a lot of the weeds present now are still cool season weeds that will be naturally abated as the temperatures warm up.

Re:Curb Section: The streets department in Public Works has been informed of your note about the 'chunk of concrete missing' and will have someone review it to determine the right course of action. Thank you.
