Prosper City Council members passed a development proposal for a new food truck park to be built at Silo Park at their meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 10.
The original proposal was discussed shortly in the council’s previous meeting. They officially approved it to be in business for three years, with continued use available with the acquisition of a specific use permit. The park will include a stage for performances, a beverage center, patio cover and fencing.
A lengthy discussion was centered around an ordinance regarding parking on South Craig Road. The end of the road, south of Judy Rucker Elementary School, is under review to become a “no parking zone” to clear traffic in the area. The council tabled the ordinance and will revisit soon.
An item was passed to allow the construction of Mahard Parkway to serve a new location for Longo Toyota. The new road will be off Highway 280 and was authorized by the Town Manager to execute a Roadway Impact Fees Reimbursement between the town of Prosper and the dealership.
The meeting closed with a discussion on proposed rental fees for use of Prosper’s new football stadium, expected to be complete for use in the Fall of 2019. Cities in the Dallas area and schools as far as Round Rock each have different proposed rates. On average, use of the stadium will cost $35 an hour for Prosper residents and $45 for non-residents. Synthetic rates are doubled per hour, and lights will be $20 an hour, on average.
Consent agenda items that passed included an amendment to a resolution regarding a grant application for the development of the Whitley Place Trail Extension Project, as well as an act authorizing the construction of FM 2478 (Custer Road) from US 380 to FM 1461.
The next bi-weekly council meeting is at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 24 at 108 W. Broadway Street.
