Plano City Council to Decide Haggard Farm Development Proposal – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth


A new mixed-use development proposal on land owned by one of Plano’s oldest families could get the green light on Tuesday evening.

Plano City Council will review the project plan on Haggard Farms in a meeting on Tuesday evening. The land has been owned by the Haggard family since 1856.

“Our goal is to have signature development across the farm. We don’t want anything that is detrimental to anyone, ”Rutledge Haggard said at a meeting of the Plano Planning and Zoning Commission last month.

He sought to reassure residents who have expressed concerns about the development plan, which includes entertainment and green spaces, a hotel, restaurant, commercial buildings and housing.

Some residents do not want to see the apartments and are concerned about the traffic and traffic jams in Plano.

“This proposal represents yet another divisive fire against homeowners and taxpayers in our city,” a resident said at the planning and zoning meeting in November.

At one point, former city council candidate Steve Lavine, who sits on the board of directors of the Avignon Windhaven Homeowners Association, was against the project – the development is adjacent to Haggard Farms. But after seeing other plans, he said it was the best they would get.

“We actually saw a lot denser of it, including a lot more apartments, a lot more office development, a lot less green space,” Lavine said.

The Planning and Zoning Commission approved the plan by a 5: 3 vote. Plano city council has the final say at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
