November 28 City Council Meeting Recap

Major items approved were:

1️⃣ Alley Reconstruction
Seven alleys will be reconstructed with just over $404,000 in engineering professional services. Alleys impacted are:
▪️ Sunflower Alley – between Sunflower Lane and Sun Meadows Street (662 linear feet)
▪️ Sun Meadows Alley – between Sun Meadows Street and Sunflower Alley (147 LF)
▪️ Cherrywood Alley – between Chelsea Lane and Cherrywood Lane (1031 LF)
▪️ Sandpiper Alley – around Sandpiper Circle from Balboa Way to Balboa Way (1270 LF)
▪️ Winding Brook Alley – from Winding Brook Drive to Cave River Drive (1148 LF)
▪️ Oak Shores Alley – from 4563 Oak Shores Drive and 4549 Oak Shores Drive (745 LF)
▪️ Westmoreland Alley – between 4001 New Forest Drive and 2704 Westmoreland Drive (780 LF)

Approximately 500 LF of screening wall for Winding Brook Alley will also be replaced.

The project addresses deteriorating or failing pavement, reduces ongoing maintenance costs and increases the quality of life for nearby residents.

2️⃣ Cotton Belt Corridor Regional Rail Project Interlocal Agreement
The Amended and Restated Interlocal Agreement between City of Plano and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) for the Cotton Belt Corridor Regional Rail Project was originally put in place on Aug. 13, 2018.

Now known as the DART Silver Line, City of Plano and DART staff have developed design changes to benefit Plano residents and the broader public. Project elements include grade-separated crossings and at-grade crossings for the rail line and the hike and bike trail. Signal timing coordination within Plano and an additional turn lane from the President George Bush Turnpike eastbound frontage road to northbound Alma Drive have also been added.

Along with refining roles and responsibilities, the agreement now has the completion of the Silver Line set to Dec. 31, 2024. This is a two-year delay from the estimate in the original agreement.

The DART Board of Directors approved the amended and restated agreement earlier this month.

Defend Your Drains from Fats, Oils and Grease

Stop FOG from creating costly clogs this holiday season. FOG stands for fats, oils and grease: residues leftover from cooking and baking. FOG also includes food scraps and residues left on dishes after eating.

Defend your drains by:
- Wiping pans and plates with paper towels to remove residues before scrubbing them clean.
- Using a food strainer to prevent food scraps from going down the drain. Use your garbage disposal sparingly.
- Placing cooled, solidified FOG or used cooking oil in a container that you can seal and store easily. Trash it when full or call 972-769-4150 to schedule a free pickup.

Learn more at share.plano.gov/FOG.

Defend your drains from costly repairs. Remember to dispose of your fats, oils and grease properly and never pour it down the drain.

November 14 City Council Meeting Recap

Major items approved were:

1️⃣ Erosion Control – Spring Creek at 16th Street
This project is critical to protecting the west streambank along Spring Creek, north of 16th Street. The $2.6 million in erosion protection measures includes creek stabilization and a gabion basket tieback wall, approximately 500 feet in length.

While we have access to the creek, a hike and bike trail with a pedestrian bridge will also be installed along the top of the gabion wall as part of the Chisholm Trail expansion along Spring Creek.

2️⃣ Automatic Fire and EMS Assistance Interlocal Agreement
A new Memorandum of Understanding between the cities of Plano and Richardson for Automatic Assistance for Fire and EMS Service replaces a 2004 agreement. This agreement realigns support to these areas:

▪️ Southeastern Plano - Richardson Station 6 automatically assists with all structure fires and any high acuity incidents occurring within the City of Plano when Plano Engine 3 is unavailable.

▪️ Northwestern Richardson - Plano Station 2 automatically provides aid to all structure fires as well as any high acuity incidents occurring within the City of Richardson when Richardson Engine 3 is unavailable.

Plano and its neighboring cities regularly work together for the benefit of our residents in similar ways.

STAY WEATHER AWARE

Collin and Denton County are under a Tornado Watch today from 1 to 8 pm.

Remember the difference between WATCHES and WARNINGS:
⚠️ Watch = Be aware: The ingredients are in place for severe weather to happen.
🚨 Warning = Take action: severe weather has formed and is happening.

📲 Sign up to receive weather alerts by text, call or email with Plano City Call. Text PLANO to 99411 or sign up at share.plano.gov/PlanoCityCall.

📢 When it comes to Plano's Outdoor Warning Sirens, remember 4, 3, 2, 1:
4) There are FOUR reasons sirens will sound: 70+ mph wind, 1.5"+ hail, tornado warnings/tornado spotted, or other emergencies where people outdoors need to get indoors immediately.
3) The sirens will sound for THREE minutes once they are set off.
2) When you hear sirens, take TWO actions: seek shelter and seek information.
1) Even if there is an emergency in ONE part of the city, all sirens will sound.

As more and more people work from home, the city of Plano should take measures to reduce noise pollution in our community.

Primarily with respect to the equipment and gear used by landscape & maintenance crew. This directly impacts quality of life for many residents and there are many paths / options to solve this problem.

This is a also a great place to start:
The water running from the tap smells strongly of metal this morning. Is this a known issue or something that needs to be investigated?

Can you please clean up this derogatory graffiti at your “Prestigious” Park.. This disgusting language is located near the concession stand by Soccer Fields E & F... I hope not to see this tomorrow
Park by Brinker, flooded and lots of trash from weekend.
I was considering Plano as a city to move to. Now after seeing the local law enforcement too scared to uphold laws. Especially after a "protestor" pulled a gun on a person just trying to get somewhere because they arrested his movement and violated his rights.
Drive-thru life-saving shots for 12+ at John Clark Stadium in Plano. Walk-ins or appts. are happening right now.
Come and get them. They are going fast. Let's Go! 😃
A great way to protect all kids in the Metroplex and let them be kids again!
Drive-thru + get a shot and celebrate! Woohoo!
The behavior by the officer and follow up excuses by the Chief in regard to the situation where BLM blocked the road is disgusting. Where is the rule of law? Apparently, it's now a free-for-all within the Plano city limits. If Plano wants to maintain the support of the citizens for the Plano PD, you'd better get this under control. It you don't nip it in the bud, you're just going to see more and more of it until the people get tired of it and settle things on their own since the police obviously won't. FIX THIS IMMEDIATELY!
Please put your street signs on the right side of the street pole because some are in the middle of the street pole thank you
