I think I remember a guy from college named Stacy Green, I wonder if he's the same one in Allen. oh, wait, different, not the same.

Anecdotes like this are common, and I would think a big part of the backlash in Plano to increased density. Establishing firm urban/suburban growth boundaries is reaching the point of no return. The future of Hwy 360 from McKinney to Denton has been argued off and on for decades; a 50 year decision will have to come pretty soon. The best case scenario for that decision is balanced upon Urban/Suburban growth boundaries AND Rural, ranching-wilderness preservation.
