Concerns over new Universal Studios theme park in Frisco, Texas

The people of Frisco are worried about what will come after the creation of the Universal theme park. The town hall-style gathering was held on Jan. 11 following Universal Parks & Resorts’ announcement that a new resort-style theme park will be coming to the city of Collin County in the future, but a rough date has yet to be set.

According to NBCDFW, residents living near the newly announced park met at Trent High School to ask questions and discuss the park’s impact on surrounding families.

“We just want to make sure our lives don’t completely change,” local resident Colin Berry said during the meeting.

The biggest challenge was the possibility of adding a hotel to Frisco’s already busy streets.

“We already have so much coming here with the PGA, the Dallas Stars and the like,” said Jeff Martinez.

The 97-acre theme park is likely to bring even more travelers and residents to the Frisco area. With a project this large, many city employees will be joining the planning stages to ensure that the park is as little disruptive to Frisco residents as possible.

“Our guests arrive at a time when you have already left for your jobs, and this is contrary to where flows are directed to your community,” a park spokesman said during the meeting.

While not much information has been released, we know the approximate location will be in North Frisco, east of the Dallas North Toll Road and north of Panther Creek Boulevard.

Another issue that was discussed at the meeting was noise control. Local Profile It was previously reported that park leaders would ensure silence around the park so that there were no disruptions.

“Noise levels outside will be near zero because Universal doesn’t want any sound from their own themed lands to seep into the neighboring ones,” said Frisco board member Tammy Meinershagen. “They want to completely immerse you in the history of each land, which means isolating sound even within the park.”

Frisco leaders are likely to continue to reassure residents about the decision to open a theme park.
