#2: What should you do when you see a bobcat or a discarded bike?

Steve and Shannah are back with February’s edition of #InsidePlano, the City Podcast. They explore the many updates to Plano’s Parks and Recreation offerings. Steve reveals the first three acts hitting the state for the Courtyard Texas Music Series while Shannah makes plans for Book-in-Common 2018. Rental bikes have arrived in Plano, and the team talks about Plano’s plans to manage bike share. Animal Department director Jamey Cantrell joins the show to talk about urban wildlife – including Plano’s well-known bobcat population – now that breeding season is underway – and how you can protect yourself and your property. This month the team explains how to get the 4-1-1 on construction projects and lost pets. Of course, they take a moment to drool over the latest food trend in Plano.
