Construction on the Cowboys’ new giant multi-use facility will begin in June. If, that is, Frisco city leaders today vote to approve the plans.
The Cowboys announced last year they will be leaving Valley Ranch for Frisco, in a 91-acre development along the Dallas North Tollway. Plans call for a state-of-the-art training facility, a 12,000-seat indoor stadium, two practice fields and a surrounding development that will include offices, retail stores and a fitness club.
Frisco’s Planning & Zoning Committee will meet tonight to vote on the project, and most of the focus will be the parking and access to the attraction. The plan, which includes approximately 1,500 underground parking spots, is expected to be approved.
So while the Cowboys begin OTAs at their old home, their new home could take a big step toward getting shovels in the ground.
