Placemaking & Public Spaces Policy
Plano will create memorable and unique public spaces to enhance community character and build neighborhood identity.
Evaluate the cost and other resources needed to create active programming in parks and along trails to create multi-use destinations that support both formal and informal activities.
Participate with national PARKing Day where artists, designers, and citizens transform parking spots into temporary public parks.
Create a public space activation guide that provides guidance to the city and developers on activating public spaces.
Identify areas for food truck events.
Explore the addition of complementary facilities on the Plano Event Center site or surrounding properties that would enhance its ability to attract regional and national events.
Evaluate current facilities in terms of hosting regional and national events which could attract visitors to the city and determine the costs required to complete the necessary improvements.
Review development regulations as needed to ensure site design requirements support and encourage public spaces.
Coordinate with the Historic Downtown Plano Association to support active programming for McCall Plaza.
