How Do You Envision Oak Point?

Envision Oak Point

Be part of Envision Oak Point. This collaborative effort will shape the future of an important gateway into Plano.

The 730-acre area in northeast Plano is generally bounded by Legacy Drive to the north, Spring Creek Parkway to the east, Shawnee Park to the south and the DART right-of-way to the west (see map of the study area).

This interactive planning process focuses on the future of the Oak Point area. Participants will help develop a unified vision for a section of Plano rich in community, character and culture. If you live, work, socialize, learn or worship in this area, we especially want to hear from you!

Envision Oak Point kicked off in early February with the creation of a project committee. The members include stakeholders from adjacent neighborhoods, area property owners, faith-based organizations, city leadership and partners such as PISD and Collin College. Over the last month, they have examined existing conditions and discussed key themes influencing the future of the Oak Point area.

Now the initial analysis is nearly complete and it's time to work with the Plano community. We're looking for your input on how this study should address both the opportunities and constraints within the Oak Point study area.

Please join us as your schedule allows March 28 through March 30 at Plano Centre's Northbrook Room (2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway). For easy access, park on the east side of the building. No RSVP is required. Just come and participate during any or all of the sessions.

Here's the schedule, so you can plan which day or days you'd like to attend:

  • Tuesday, March 28, 6-8:30 p.m. - Community Design Workshop: Hands-on exercises will help you visualize and share your plan ideas for the future of the Oak Point area. We'll discuss how we can create a sense of place for the Oak Point area, and key elements like land use, open space and transportation. If you have just one day, this is a good session to attend. Your input will be very valuable, because ideas shared during the workshop will get the wheels turning on the planning process. (6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m. workshop kickoff)

Wednesday, March 29, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. - Community Drop-in Session: In this session, you observe the team at work. Watch the project team absorbing your ideas, weaving them together to develop potential development scenarios for the Oak Point area. If you like details and process, you will love this session!

Thursday, March 30, 5-8 p.m. - Community Open House: View and comment on the scenarios created over the two previous days. This is a good session to attend to tell us what you think of the results so far.
