The Frisco city council and the planning and zoning committee were originally scheduled to vote on the permit on February 7. The vote was postponed to February 21. It has now been postponed a second time to March 7, Kera News reports.

Some Frisco residents are concerned about the new theme park and the effects it will have on crime and traffic. Resident Melinda Preston said, “I do not want my city to become a destination city. Can you name one city that is a destination city that does not have high crime?”

Several residents who have been speaking out against the new park live in the Cobb Hill neighborhood, near the park’s proposed location. Steve Cone, a member of the planning and zoning committee and Cobb Hill resident, said it’s important to educate Frisco’s citizens about the theme park as well as listen to their concerns.

“Universal is asking us to do something really big,” he said, “to be the research and development city for where they’re going to try this big, bold project.”

More information about the park will be made available during a public presentation at the following city council meeting, Mayor Jeff Cheney said.

A traffic analysis regarding the new park was released and updated this month.
