“With the opening of The Star, the development of major mixed-use projects along the Dallas North Tollway, the commencement of Mayor Maso’s final year in office, and the pending retirement of City Manager George Purefoy, every business needs to be aware of how these changes might impact their operations,” said Tony Felker, President/CEO of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce.
