Housing Development with Green Rooftops Gets OK from Frisco City Council

During Tuesday’s meeting, Frisco City Council unanimously approved a zoning request for a housing development planned to have houses with green rooftops.

The development would be the first of its kind in the city and the region. It is planned to incorporate the property’s natural features, including a creek and trees, into the layout of the neighborhood. The planned development would be located on the northeast corner of Independence Parkway and Rolater Road.

The majority of residents who gave feedback to the council during Tuesday’s meeting were in favor of the proposed development. Council members called the development “innovative.”

During the Nov. 28 meeting, Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a request from the owners of the property to rezone 57 acres from agriculture to single family.
