A new rail for Dallas Area Rapid Transit (Official DART page) Silver Line project has made its way to Plano.

The 26-mile Silver Line Regional Rail Project is under construction between DFW Airport, Grapevine, Coppell, Dallas, Carrollton, Addison, Richardson and Plano and includes 10 new stations.

When completed, the $1.2 billion Silver Line will connect with the Trinity Metro TEXRail commuter rail line at DFW North station providing access to Downtown Fort Worth, Grapevine and various other Tarrant County locales.

The line will also connect with the Denton County Transportation Authority A-train commuter rail line providing access to various Denton County locales and DART's Green Line providing access to Dallas Love Field and Downtown Dallas via Downtown Carrollton station.

DART anticipates beginning service in early 2023.

Plano Animal Services urges Caution in Wake of Second Rabies Case

Animal Service Director Jamey Cantrell reports Plano Animal Services had a second bat in the last week test positive for rabies.

This bat was tested after it came into contact with a resident in the area of W. Parker Road and Independence Parkway.

Rabies is a viral disease that occurs in warm-blooded animals and can be contracted by humans through bites from infected animals. “This positive test highlights the importance of being cautious around wildlife and always reporting any contact with them. It also shows why keeping all pets’ vaccinations current – especially rabies – is important since there is no way to predict when a pet may come into contact with a wild animal,” says Cantrell.

Both State of Texas and Plano city ordinances require that animals receive the rabies inoculation along with subsequent booster shots for the duration of the animal’s life.

Plano Animal Services urges Caution after Recent Rabies Case

Plano Animal Services Director Jamey Cantrell reports a bat tested positive for rabies this week after it came into contact with a resident in the area of W. 15th Street and Custer Road. Rabies is a viral disease occurring in warm-blooded animals and can be contracted by humans through bites from infected animals.

“This positive test highlights the importance of being cautious around wildlife and always reporting any contact with them,” said Cantrell. “It also shows why it’s so important to keep all pet vaccinations current, especially rabies. There is no way to predict when a pet may come into contact with a wild animal.”

Texas law and Plano city ordinances require animals receive rabies inoculations along with subsequent booster shots for the duration of the animal’s life.

The Plano Animal Shelter does not routinely test wild animals for rabies unless they have had contact with a person or pet and are one of five high risk non-domestic animals: bats, foxes, skunks, coyotes and raccoons.

This particular incident involved a resident who had contact with a bat. The bat was ill and died before Animal Services could pick it up. Due to the nature of the situation, the animal was tested and subsequently found to be rabid.

Rabies is preventable. The Shelter hosts low-cost rabies vaccination clinic on the third Friday of every month. The next clinic is on Friday, September 18th. We urge all pet-owners to take advantage of this opportunity for their pet’s health and the health of their human family. View more vaccination options at https://bit.ly/3msz37s.

Why is Forman omitted from this data?
City Council and Police, I have lived on Baxter Dr. for going on 21 years. During this time I and my neighbors have not only addressed city council, but have also made repeated complaints about the excessive speed on the street. We recently had a pickup and car totaled. I have seen a car flip. I have seen cars end up in the park. My neighbor has lost a mail box. Trees have been knocked down. I have had three different vehicles damaged. People have almost gotten hit while crossing the street. Fences have been knocked down, houses have been hit. What does it take for the police and the city council to take action? Do we have to have a kid killed for you to understand what we see on a day to day basis. We asked for 2 speed humps strategically placed. The ones you can drive 25 to 30 mph over, but you have said no. But you do not offer any other solution. It is really get out of hand, and those of us that live here are beyond frustrated. With the new repairs there is not even a pot hole to slow them down. Some one needs to enforce the law by making examples out of someone, or give us a method to slow people down. Respectfully, Bobby Finn
Hi Plano. Does Plano have any similar plans? How about dimming the Legacy and Granite Park areas in particular since they are our tallest buildings?
This shelter is the worst animal shelter ive ever seen. They literally gave a part of our family away.. The staff knew we came to claim our dog Chakooh.. We did everything we was told to do to get our baby back. My daughter presented several pics and videos of our dog and the lost and found lady even confirmed that our dog was there! They refused to let my daughter have him because he had to be nuetured.. Friday morning my daughter went to pick him up and pay fees.. Place opens at 9am they adopted my dog out by 9:15am knowing he had been claimed and was going to be picked up!!! Said the worker said she only saw a black blob when she looked at the picture my daughter shown her.. Also the employee stated she would put a note on his file to NOT BE ADOPTED!!!! He is my best friend and has a family that will fight as hard as possible to have him home.. I will add the pictures that they was presented to them... They act like its no big deal and their staff messed up and lied!!!! And whoever adopted him Please bring him back. He has a family!!!

This is a review for Legacy Hall as it should be the city of Plano's responsibility to take care of it's citizens during this pandemic. Please don't go to Legacy Hall if you are concerned with COVID. None of the seating is socially distant with barely any space between tables. Thankfully all the staff were wearing masks but the customers were not at all. It's a place to eat so you can't do that with a mask but most people were not even wearing a mask when walking around. I went on a Friday and it was absolutely packed in there. The staff were doing a good job with cleaning the tables regularly but I didn't see the door handles or railing being wiped nor the bar area where customers were leaning on. Also customers kept taking their mask off to tell out their order to bartenders while they were making drinks right in front of them. That should not be allowed. I get that people have to make a living but the fact that Legacy Hall management has not put up any sort of precautions is very concerning. Go at your own risk.
