Thank you to all who attended, supported and promoted the Community Meeting!
We had a full house at Canyon Ridge Middle School and made a strong impression on our guests and elected officials. We heard from a comprehensive panel discussing transportation and related issues and learned of a path forward to get the next round of RM620 improvements into plan. It seems we have a window where the money will be there, the plan options are there from TxDOT, and everyone in the room supported taking the next steps beyond the “bypass” project to improve safety and mobility for years to come (6 lanes with median and eventually express lanes). Now we need to cement support for moving forward aggressively by keeping up the pressure until we get a comprehensive plan to build out the improvements TxDOT presented for RM620 in a timely manner. We will need to work with our elected officials, surrounding communities and CAMPO to get this done – but based on the turnout this evening we are up to the task and we have support from our representatives.
For these improvements to happen, we will need your help as a community, so please take the time to do the following:
