With the growth, congestion and air pollution we have here in Collin County, you might think that there are more than a few citizens who would interested in plans to build our transportation network.
After all these citizens voted overwhelmingly to approve the 2007 bond package - most of which is slated for roadway construction.
Many might also want to offer some input on how the half a billion dollars from the SH 121 concession might be spent.
Some might want to ask about plans for expansion of mass transit.
Some might want to offer opinions about the Outer Loop, or plans to build near their property.
You might think your elected County Commissioners would be interested enough in your opinion to make it possible for you to attend.
You might think that the new County Judge, who's campaign promised to "Move the Commissioners’ Court open sessions to a facility large enough to accommodate all fully-engaged citizens of Collin County who wish to participate in the open conduct of county business." would schedule a public hearing on the county's Mobility Plan so that citizens could attend.
You would be mistaken.
Instead the Collin County Mobility Plan Update Public Hearing is scheduled for 1:30 PM on Tuesday, January 8th, in the 6th floor closet the Commissioners like to meet in. Their closet holds about 4 commissioners, one judge, 2 reporters, 25 county employees and 6 citizens.
Some day, our voters will elect a Commissioners Court who values their constituency enough to actually WANT to hear what citizens have to say. This Commissioners Court will meet after 6PM and in a room large enough to encourage participation.
The present regime spends more time every year discussing their own salaries than listening to voters. What is more important to YOU?
