The Court of Appeals for the Fifth District of Texas has dismissed claims against the City of Plano and City Council members. The lawsuit asked the court to suspend Plano Tomorrow, the City’s comprehensive plan, replace it with the 1986 comprehensive plan, and require City Council to call an election. The court dismissed those requests. The appellate court also ruled Thursday that a State District Court has the authority to hear the case involving a petition calling for a referendum on the Plano Tomorrow plan. The question of whether this petition is valid has not been decided.
City Staff will be briefing City Council members Monday to consider the next step in this ongoing process.
