COMMUNITY DESIGN Policy


Plano will incorporate community design components within public spaces and streetscapes and will promote compatible design components within new developments, to enrich areas throughout the city, create distinctive visual character, and encourage a pedestrian-friendly environment where appropriate. Plano will also promote Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) and Universal Design within all of the above.
