The expansion of Plano’s Legacy Trail couldn’t have come at a better time, according to Shirley Barbaro, a member of the Plano Running Club. From her home, a little more than 200 yards from the trailhead, Barbaro has seen a lot more trac in recent months on Legacy Trail, which runs along White Rock Creek in northern Plano. With the addi- tion of bridges over the creek and paths from nearby neighborhoods to the trail, it’s now that much eas- ier for her to start her runs, she said. Legacy Trail has undergone two expansions over the past two years. The rst, a $3.3 million project, con- nected a gap in Legacy Trail south of Legacy Drive and was completed this spring. A second roughly $1.7 million project north of Hedgcoxe Road is close to completion, with much of it already open to visitors. Recently completed expansions along the Windhaven Meadows Park CONTINUED ON 27 Plano builds upon local, regional trails BY LIESBETH POWERS

The gym’s owner, Alexander Hilligsoe Trans, is a former jiujitsu ghter who has competed in and earned top titles at national and world championships. Trans, who hails from Denmark, recently moved with his wife and son to Texas from Brazil. It has long been their dream to open a jiujitsu school in the U.S., he said. “What we are trying to create is an environment where if people want to train hard and compete, we can help them do that, or if people just want to get in shape, learn some self defense, come in and meet some people, they can do that,” he said. The school will oer skill-level-based classes for adults and children as

young as age 4. Free trial classes are available, Trans said. “We will have a big focus on … discovering the benets of jiujitsu,” he said. “We want to make sure everyone gets the best program possible for their experience level.” 214-436-1423 www.progressojiujitsu.com

FEATURED IMPACT IN THE NEWS Jason Young, owner of Verona Villa in Frisco, has partnered with Plano- based Front Burner Dining to open Alora , a full-service event venue in Fairview, Texas. Young said he created the Alora brand at the beginning of the year and had been looking for the right opportunity to bring it to life with Front Burner Experiences President Jordan Swim. They found that opportunity in the former Noah’s Event Center location in Fairview, Young said. “There’s no doubt that some people will think that we’re crazy [to be expanding] at a time when there’s apprehension to face-to-face gatherings,” Young said. “We’re just condent that those times are coming back, and so we’re just trying to position ourselves for when they do.”

Young said the Fairview location, which is expected to open in mid- October, will be the rst of what could be several Alora locations in the area. “We’re in discussions with some other locations to add some more Aloras over the next couple of months,” Young said, noting they are looking at “Frisco-adjacent” cities, such as Plano and McKinney. Swim, whose company also operates restaurants such as Haywire, Mexican Sugar and Legacy Hall, called it a “wild time” to be expanding but noted that people are “social beings” who are “meant to connect.” “I think that as we emerge out of this that we’re going to really see just a tremendous amount of opportunity [for this venue],” Swim said. “People are going to need spaces and places that really mean something in order to connect and relate to each other.”

Although the coronavirus pandemic is ongoing, as of press time, the state maintains that all students will be required to take the STAAR exam in 2021.
