Linking Existing Developments with Future Expansions
Our firm developed a comprehensive Master Plan and partial contact documents for this trail system within the City of Plano that would better integrate the Spring Creek greenway and the Chisholm Trail into the various land uses along the trail alignment. Goals of the master plan were to provide trail linkages to existing developments and to suggest redevelopment options in vacant sites that would encourage new retail and multi-family developments within the context of the Spring Creek greenway. The plan links major existing retail nodes with single and multifamily residential developments, existing city parks and civic buildings such as the Plano Senior Center and a Plano branch library. Our work included an extensive site analysis phase and as well as a lengthy public input process. Contract Documents included bridge improvements at two city street crossings as well as Big Lake edge improvements and two overlooks along the existing trail, adjacent to the creek.
