FRISCO — The future of The Arts of Collin County is in jeopardy after Frisco residents voted to pull out of the $16.4 million project.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting 53 percent of voters said they favored ending Frisco's participation in the multi-city performing arts center.

The facility has been in the works for nearly a decade.

Back in 2002, voters in Plano, Allen and Frisco voted to approve $19 million dollars' worth of bond sales for the arts center. McKinney's vote fell short.

The project is expected to cost upwards of $80 million.

Phase One includes a 2,100 seat performing arts center, a seven-acre outdoor meadow and stage along with a sculpture garden.
