Frisco is increasingly becoming a world-class city as more major sports and business projects move to this beautiful North Texas hub, and more families relocate here to get in on the amazing Frisco real estate and lifestyle opportunities. With such upward mobility in this city, it’s only natural that amenities and recreational opportunities that state departments spend big dollars on are also popping up in the Frisco area. And a recent announcement from The Texas Department of Transportation (TDT) signals just another one of these fantastic developments for Frisco home owners.
The TDT is bestowing $516,000 to the Frisco Parks and Recreation Department in the form of a state grant that will go toward a quarter-mile addition to the Taychas Trail, which currently runs about 1.2 miles and is made of concrete. The addition falls in line with two goals. First, to eventually connect Frisco to Dallas via the trail which would end at White Rock Lake. Secondly, it is part of a plan to connect Frisco, Plano, McKinney, Allen, Richardson and Dallas via the Six Cities Hike and Bike Trail, creating a way to stay fit and take in the nature of this beautiful North Texas area.
“The trail system will eventually connect several different cities and enable residents to travel to various entertainment and recreation areas,” stated Frisco Parks and Planning Business Development Manager Dudley Raymond. “By encouraging people to ride bikes or travel on foot, we’re likely to reduce emissions and improve the environment around us.”Frisco has been working on developing such stellar recreational amenities for Frisco home owners and residents for more than a decade, and the result thus far has been 63 miles of trails for bikers and hikers in the Frisco area.

"We had a very specific set of requirements for our next house, and Tad set us up with several MLS searches which provided daily updates as houses became available or dropped in price. From this list we were immediately notified as the perfect house became available and as as a result we were able to move quickly with an offer.
The buying process became complicated and at several points looked as if the deal may fall through. However Tad and his team were always quick to react to changing circumstances to find a way to get the deal done at every turn.
Tad and his team were always available, very responsive, and thankfully proactive in making sure that every detail had been taken care of. We were able to find a house we had previously begun to think wasn't possible. Thanks to Tad and Team for all the hard work"
