FRISCO – In light of a still struggling economy and many financial unknowns, Frisco town officials will likely delay the “Step up Main Street” redevelopment project.

The Town of Frisco is currently focused on redeveloping the area between Summit Boulevard and Madison Avenue on Main Street to create a cohesive, historic look for its main drag.

Town manager Michael Penny said at a Tuesday council work session that construction on Frisco’s Main Street project should be pushed back to 2012, instead of 2011 as initially planned.

“We’re going to have to get real about when we can do that,” Penny said, noting that the town must be able to support its current infrastructure before it does anything new.

Town staff will to wait to see how 2010 finances pan out before moving forward on the large-scale plans to revamp Frisco’s Main Street design.

Designer Mary Hart has already drawn up a tentative vision for the town’s Main Street – a pedestrian-friendly street complete with tree lanes next to side walks, pocket parks, a pedestrian corridor by Third Avenue and public art.
