The future of Plano

The future of Plano

Great things are coming as Plano looks forward to the future!

Only a decade after Downtown Plano’s resurgence began, there are many success stories to tell. 

Residents of downtown and its surrounding neighborhoods populate the streets, visiting downtown 

shops and restaurants, taking children to the park and walking their dogs. A vibrant restaurant 

and nightlife scene attracts people from throughout the region. New investors and businesses 

have diversified the retail, service and office sectors. With economic recovery, new residential 

development is under way, adding to the street life and energy of the area. Downtown Plano has 

the critical mass necessary to sustain existing businesses and attract new ones.

Goals for the Next 10 Years:

• Develop 1,000 units of housing within one-half mile of the Downtown Plano Station and a 

total of 2,000 units within the Plano DART rail corridor. 

• Diversify non-residential use and develop or revitalize 150,000 square feet of non-residential 

space within ½ mile of the Downtown Plano Station and a total of 500,000 square feet of 

non-residential space within the DART rail corridor. 

• Use redevelopment opportunities to remove blighted and underperforming commercial 

buildings. 

• Improve streets, trails and sidewalks to create a pedestrian-friendly environment and 

better connections among neighborhoods, mixed-use centers and transit stations. 

• Improve the physical condition and economic vitality of neighborhoods within the DART 

rail corridor. 

• Continue the economic and tax base growth required to provide public improvements, 

services and reinvestment incentives.

Downtown Plano and the DART rail corridor are redefining Plano’s future. As the region’s population 

grows to more than 9 million during the next 20 years and Plano matures, greater emphasis will be 

placed on redevelopment and creation of mixed-use urban development. Downtown and the 

DART rail corridor remain full of opportunities to demonstrate how density, diversity and design can 

stimulate reinvestment while improving the quality of life and sense of community.
