A new park in Frisco could play a role in the pres- ervation of the monarch butter ! y population and its biannual migration across North America. Construction on the 13-acre Monarch View Park New park to aid monarchmigration BY ELIZABETH UCLÉS

started in April along Teel Parkway. According to city sta " , Frisco is in the migration path for the mon- arch—awidely recognizable insect known for its black and orange markings—and to assist with their trip, the park will include the restoration of native plants and landscape. “This is a really unique opportunity for us to be able to do some restoration to make sure that those butter ! ies still come through,” Parks and Recreation Director Shannon Coates said.

FROMVICKI: With early voting starting Oct. 13 and Election Day coming up on Nov. 3, Frisco voters have a lot of research to do. Beyond the presidential election, we have important choices to decide who will represent us at the federal, state and local levels. Two Frisco City Council seats and one Frisco ISD board of trustees seat are on the November ballot. Decisions made by these two governing bodies have a direct and signi " cant in ! uence on the future of our fast- growing community. I encourage everyone who is eligible to vote to make your voice heard. We invite you to review our Voter Guide (see Page 17) and to make a plan to vote. If you choose to vote in person, make sure you identify your polling location, block out time on your calendar, arrange transportation and " nd an accountability buddy to check in with after you’ve both cast your votes. Happy voting! Vicki Chen, GENERALMANAGER

FEATURED IMPACT COMING SOON Four years after opening Verona Villa in Frisco, owner Jason Young plans to expand his event venue o ! erings with a new brand called Alora at 351 Southwind Lane, Fairview, in mid- October. The full-service event venue will be a joint venture between Verona Villa and Vestals Catering by Front Burner Experiences. That company is a division of Front Burner Group Dining, which operates restaurants in Plano, such as Haywire, Mexican Sugar and Legacy Hall. 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. The Fairview location will be the " rst of what could be several Alora locations studio o " ers barre workouts focused on low-impact and high-intensity move- ments to improve strength and ! exibility. 214-469-1147. www.purebarre.com/ location/frisco-tx MERGERS 13 Cook Children’s Ear, Nose and Throat opened in July at 11445 Dallas Parkway, Ste. 240, Frisco, after merging with Frisco ENT for Children.

in the area, Young said, noting they are looking at “Frisco-adjacent” cities, such as Plano and McKinney. Swim called it a “wild time” to be expanding but noted 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,” Swim said. “People are going to need spaces and places that really mean something in order to connect and relate to each other.” 972-837-8034 www.veronavilla.com

TRANSPORTATIONUPDATES

City works with Waze to provide construction updates and routes

BY MIRANDA JAIMES

Frisco’s Public Works Department has incorporated information on city roadway projects into Waze, a GPS navigation software application. The system allows motorists to stay up to date on roadway and lane closures and o ! ers alternative travel routes, according to Frisco documents. The integration was performed in mid-August. With the update, when a construction order is entered into Frisco’s work log, a message is automatically sent to Waze. Waze then collects the location informa- tion from the work order and alerts motorists of the project start date, the time indicated on the work order and any possible travel delays, according to Frisco documents. With the new system, Waze will be able to provide information for various items, including concrete repairs, foam injection, joint sealing, pavement replacement, repair brick pavers, road repair for asphalt overlay, road repair for asphalt reconstruction and road repair for asphalt sealing. Documents noted that the Waze integration project applies only to city projects and does not include lane closures conducted by franchise utilities or projects that are part of private development. To help the program stay up to date, the city of Frisco’s IT Department will scan the city’s work log about every 30 minutes to check the status of roadway projects, after which the programwill send any updates directly to Waze.

at the food hall, Farr said. The Taste Buds Group plans to open a french fries-focused concept at the food hall that will serve 15-20 gourmet dipping sauces, he said. The remaining eight vendors are still in progress, but Farr said the food hall plans to feature “unique” and “eclectic” vendors. “We don’t necessarily want big brands coming in,” he said. The food hall’s o ! erings will extend outdoors as well, Farr said. “We have multiple properties around the food hall that we can use,” he said. A beer garden that can hold 250 people will be located between the food hall and the Frisco Fresh Market, Farr said. The space can also serve as a music venue for smaller acts. “We want the community to be proud to have this space,” Farr said.

A new food hall in Frisco is expected to bring eclectic vendors, bars, a beer garden and concert spaces next year. Main Street Food Hall, located on John W. Elliott Drive near Toyota Stadium and Frisco Fresh Market, is expected to open in early 2021, said Doug Farr, the vice president of The Taste Buds Group. “It’s going to o ! er something for everybody,” he said. The food hall will span 10,000 square feet over two " oors, Farr said. Both levels will include a bar, but the second " oor will serve as an upscale sports bar that can host Sunday brunch and transform into an acoustic space for smaller music acts. The # rst " oor will hold 10 ven- dors and over 30 TVs broadcasting local sports. Fast-casual restaurant Fatburger is expected to be a vendor

EDUCATION BRIEFS

Frisco Education Foundation pivots fundraising efforts

BY ELIZABETH UCLÉS

Academy. Cheruvu said the foundation is aiming to raise at least $175,000 in scholarships this year to meet a wide range of needs within the district. “We have to be able to adapt to what’s going to be coming up, whether it’s our teachers or our students trying to bring up the next great entrepreneurial idea or those others trying to reach for higher education,” she said. Fundraising will “directly impact” scholarship amounts this year, Miller said. The foundation’s minimum scholarship is $500. “It de " nitely takes the whole city, not just a village, to make this happen for all of our FISD students,” Cheruvu said.

FRISCO ISD Changes to fundraising this school year could a ! ect student scholarships from the Frisco Educa- tion Foundation. “The class of 2021 is going to take a hit, too, when it comes to our scholar- ship program because of fundraising,” FEF Director Allison Miller said. Many of the foundation’s fund- raising events are typically held in person, and as such, they will look di ! erent this school year, Miller said. For one, the annual FEF Gary Burns 5K and Fun Run, a major fundraising event for the foundation, will be virtual and take place Oct. 17-31, Miller said. FEF recently celebrated its 20th year of o ! ering scholarships, teacher grants and programs to the FISD community. When the coronavirus pandemic arrived in the spring semester of 2020, FEF initiated a fundraising campaign for the year’s graduating class. In total, $685,000 in foun- dation and corporate scholarships went out to 784 FISD students. Over $239,000 came from FEF. “We’re hoping that the community will continue what they’ve started this spring for the class of 2020 when it comes to our scholarship program for class of 2021,” Miller said. The foundation was able to award teacher grants at this school year’s “new teacher welcome” event, Miller said. Teachers can decide when to use those funds. “Teachers are working so hard to make sure their students have the best and most meaningful school experience,” she said. Some of FEF’s annual program- ming also shifted in the spring. The weeklong summer programMind- bender Academy hosted around 200 students through a virtual platform and at reduced costs. FEF President Sunitha Cheruvu said the foundation will continue adjusting programs as necessary this school year. “When we talk about adapting and innovating, those are the kinds of things we’re going to continue to do,” she said in reference to Mindbender

News from Frisco ISD Young Entrepreneurs Academy in Frisco to begin 10th year remotely

BY ELIZABETH UCLÉS

FRISCO ISD Young Entrepreneurs Academy will soon kick o ! its 10th year in the city with students partici- pating virtually. The educational program through the Frisco Chamber of Commerce helps students ages 11-18 start and run businesses and social movements over the course of an academic year through mentors, events and classes. But this year’s class is going to look di ! erent, said Peter Burns, one of YEA’s programmanagers. “The impact with COVID[-19] forced us to re-look at how we were deliver- ing everything,” Burns said. The programwill be conducted virtually this school year, which could allow for students outside of Frisco to join, Burns said. In the spring, YEA’s 2019-20 class pivoted to virtual instruction after schools were closed due to the COVID- 19 pandemic. Burns said continuing classes in the " nal months of the school year was an
