Plans submitted to the city include 327 lots and a density of 2.1 units per acre. Previous plans for Hazelwood included 405 lots and a density of 2.6 units per acre. Alongside reduced lots and a lighter density, larger home lots are now planned. WATER TOWER IMPROVEMENTS Frisco began restoration work on the elevated water storage tank on Eldorado Parkway near Granbury Drive. The tank is one of the last ones in the city with the blue city logo on it, and it is due for its lifecycle painting, said Kevin Grant, Frisco’s assistant director of public works. He said it should take about six months to complete. The city has plans to add another elevated water storage tank on Preston Road near Rock Hill Road, but that project is still probably two years out, Grant said. This water tank will help provide pressure and water service to the Professional Golfers’ Association and Fields projects, he said.
