Information about the Plan
Residential Development within the Plan
Education is an important characteristic of the Plano Tomorrow plan and is stated within the plan’s overall vision statement. Two specific policies are provided within the Quality of Life and Regionalism components of the plan, which state:
Educational Opportunities Policy: Plano will assist with local educational initiatives and opportunities to ensure high quality learning within the city.
Regional Education Policy: Plano will partner with local and regional education institutions to provide quality educational opportunities to retain students in the region and for economic development opportunities to attract businesses seeking universities to provide research and development opportunities.
The two education policies contain 12 action statements, with 7 already in progress. These statements help ensure the city remains a vested partner with the school districts and higher education institutions to continue high quality learning within the city. All notifications for zoning changes are provided to PISD prior to the public hearings. A public meeting was conducted with the PISD Board of Trustees on Tuesday, September 15th to discuss the draft Plano Tomorrow plan.
