Envision Oak Point will shape the future of an important gateway into northeast Plano. This 730-acre area is generally bounded by Legacy Drive to the north, Spring Creek Parkway to the east, Shawnee Park to the south and the DART right-of-way to the west.
Residents and businesses are invited to help develop a unified vision for this section of Plano rich in community, character and culture. Residents who live, work, socialize, learn or worship in this area are especially important to this discussion. Building on the initial analysis completed by community stakeholders, the Envision Oak Point Community Design Workshop will gather fresh ideas, while addressing opportunities and constraints within the Oak Point study area.
All three meetings will be held at the Plano Centre at 2000 E. Spring Creek Parkway. For easy access, park on the east side of the building. Participants are not required to be at all three meetings but RSVPs are encouraged through EnvisionOakPoint.com/rsvp.
Here’s the schedule to plan which day or days to attend:
- Tuesday, March 28, 6-8:30 p.m. – Community Design Workshop: Hands-on exercises will help participants visualize and share plan ideas for the future of the Oak Point area. Discussion wiil focus on how we can create a sense of place for the Oak Point area, addressing key elements like land use, open space and transportation. If you have just one day, this is a good session to attend. Your input will be very valuable, because ideas shared during the workshop will get the wheels turning on the planning process. (6 p.m. check-in, 6:30 p.m.workshop kickoff)
- Wednesday, March 29, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. – Community Drop-in Session: In this session, observe the team at work.

- Thursday, March 30, 5-8 p.m. – Community Open House: View and comment on the scenarios created over the two previous days. This is a good session to attend to tell us what you think of the results so far.
