Plano Chamber Public Policy Newsletter
CHAMBER
The Plano City Council is set to consider the Envision Oak Point Plan on Monday, July 23 at 7:00 PM. The Plano Chamber will be there to support the plan and we encourage local citizens and business owners to join us.

Envision Oak Point is a long-term, strategic plan to ensure that the inevitable development of that area is cohesive; in line with the existing and surrounding communities' visions for green spaces, social hubs, and recreation opportunities; and provides a variety of housing options for students, seniors, young families, and more. Projections show this plan will boost job growth in the area, allow opportunities for additional transportation hubs, and result in an overall positive economic impact of more than $5.6 billion.

Please email your council members TODAY at mayor@plano.gov and citycouncil@plano.gov . You can also sign a card of support and choose to speak, along with the Plano Chamber, at City Council on Monday, July 23. Get there early to submit a card. Talking points on the key highlights of the plan are provided to use in communicating with City Council.
