380 Info & Updates
The Town’s Strategic Plan outlines the objective of providing an equitable level of service to stakeholders along U.S. 380. Since the original Strategic Plan was adopted in 2013, the Town has made significant progress toward this goal. Fire services have increased with the opening of Fire Station 3 and regional partnerships with Prosper and Aubrey Fire Departments. Police services have also improved with the addition of police beats and substations along the U.S. 380 corridor, as well as police services for the Paloma Creek HOA. The Town also plays an active role with regional agencies such as TxDOT to ensure traffic improvement projects along U.S. 380 are moving forward.
