   October 06, 2014, 03:08:59 PM  guest-32df: ... and my vote counts.

   October 06, 2014, 03:09:13 PM  guest-804b: I am not suggesting they be free with money 

   October 06, 2014, 03:09:21 PM  guest-32df: Right.

   October 06, 2014, 03:10:15 PM  guest-804b: I just want them to stare down those who only want to gripe 

   October 06, 2014, 03:10:53 PM  guest-32df: Tough spot for them to be in though

   October 06, 2014, 03:11:06 PM  guest-804b: Downtown has value

   October 06, 2014, 03:11:34 PM  guest-804b: If its to hot then get out, its not a easy job

   October 07, 2014, 09:23:15 AM  guest-0bec: The reality now is there are alof of ppl who want downtown redeveloped, and alot of ppl who

   October 07, 2014, 09:23:22 AM  guest-0bec: want to see the development happen around the birdge

   October 07, 2014, 09:23:42 AM  guest-0bec: Personally, I don't know if there is enough money for both at this time

   October 07, 2014, 09:24:01 AM  guest-0bec: The fight between these two is going to be what the next local election is all about, IMO

   October 07, 2014, 09:24:16 AM  guest-0bec: Even if it is isn't said publicly.  It will be the behind the scenes fight.

   October 08, 2014, 11:46:35 AM  guest-32df: I have had the idea that development around the bridge will happen of it's own accord

   October 08, 2014, 11:46:52 AM  guest-32df: I could be just w/o any knowledge on that.

   October 08, 2014, 11:47:54 AM  guest-32df: I just never thought it needed much help from the City, because it's not IN the City

   October 08, 2014, 01:16:13 PM  guest-804b: The agreements at the bridge have already been made. The developer get part of his money back based on the developments

   October 08, 2014, 01:16:36 PM  guest-804b: preformance. 

   October 08, 2014, 01:17:39 PM  guest-804b: The city can drive that development, but for now is appears they are letting the developer drive it.

   October 08, 2014, 01:18:59 PM  guest-804b: The development at the bridge will attract different businesses than downtown will, they can both happen at the same time

   October 08, 2014, 01:40:44 PM  guest-77f7: who on the council is for and against???

   October 08, 2014, 02:46:38 PM  guest-804b: I dont know if any of them are against, I just think downtown costs are uncomfortable.

   October 08, 2014, 02:47:54 PM  guest-804b: As far as the bridge development, Meadow Ridge, someone has to take the bull by the horns and drive it.

   October 08, 2014, 02:50:11 PM  guest-804b: Be the consistant voice, pushing it, visioning it, demanding a plan, offering ideas.

   October 08, 2014, 02:51:56 PM  guest-804b: I think the Hunt focous is else where and not on Meadow Ridge

   October 09, 2014, 03:10:30 PM  guest-32df: I see and agree w all

   October 09, 2014, 03:11:26 PM  guest-32df: I still think once the initial 'drive' is in place, it will more or less drive itself.

   October 09, 2014, 03:11:38 PM  guest-32df: The initial part is the bull.

   October 09, 2014, 03:13:05 PM  guest-32df: (not 'bull' - but THE bill) :)

   October 09, 2014, 03:13:17 PM  guest-32df: THE bull

   October 09, 2014, 09:47:28 PM  guest-6312: Does the Council represent EVERYONE, or just a few??  Are there any good ones left???

   October 10, 2014, 08:38:43 AM  guest-6c47: lol all they have ever done is let developers lead it... 

   October 10, 2014, 08:39:07 AM  guest-6c47: the leadership in this city is being nothing but ran by the developers... not vision or actual acheivable plan

   October 10, 2014, 08:39:40 AM  guest-6c47: and definitely not what is best for the city and the future...  started when they bent over for 

   October 10, 2014, 08:39:55 AM  guest-6c47: wal mart and of course the hUnts and many others get what they want

   October 10, 2014, 08:40:08 AM  guest-6c47: while others are marginalized or made to seem crazy for pointing out inconsistencies

   October 10, 2014, 08:40:32 AM  guest-6c47: its quite entertaining and funny how easy people are to just follow the crowd  nothing new there realy

   October 10, 2014, 08:59:00 AM  guest-804b: 6312, good question, there has been lost of drama in the resent past, not sure if it getts better without a clean sweep over 

   October 10, 2014, 08:59:08 AM  guest-804b: the next 2 years

   October 10, 2014, 08:59:59 AM  guest-804b: 6c47, it has not appeared to me the city has bent over for the developers

   October 10, 2014, 09:00:29 AM  guest-804b: the packages the developers has gotten have been preformance based

   October 10, 2014, 09:01:01 AM  guest-804b: they dont get money unless their development produces

   October 10, 2014, 09:01:41 AM  guest-804b: I realize anytime a developer comes to a small town the fear is they will run over

   October 10, 2014, 09:02:29 AM  guest-804b: or pull the wool over the eyes of the city, I think they have done a good job thus far

   October 10, 2014, 09:02:47 AM  guest-804b: that is the city has not been taken

   October 10, 2014, 09:03:08 AM  guest-804b: Forney was going to grow, its to close to Dallas not to

   October 10, 2014, 09:04:13 AM  guest-804b: Small town, rural community was going to go away

   October 10, 2014, 09:04:59 AM  guest-804b: it must be sad to the life long, mulit generation families

   October 10, 2014, 04:08:05 PM  guest-32df: It is. What they do - what a lot of them are doing is moving further out. Post Oak Bend, Mclendon-chisholm, Royse City, etc. 

   October 10, 2014, 04:08:28 PM  guest-32df: I know. 

   October 10, 2014, 04:08:48 PM  guest-32df: They do this to maintain their rural lifestyle.

   October 10, 2014, 04:58:07 PM  guest-804b: Mclendon-Chisholm and Royse City are developing and growing also

   October 12, 2014, 07:56:14 AM  guest-2977: Heath Carroll, Scott Reagin and Ray Stevens are great ambassadors of our city. Very personable leaders that listen, imo. We 

   October 12, 2014, 07:56:57 AM  guest-2977: Need to get the bridge area going. What will it take???

   October 12, 2014, 09:38:16 PM  guest-32df: Heath Carroll? Really has nothing to do w the City. You know this.

   October 12, 2014, 09:39:19 PM  guest-32df: ... and to 804b: I want to see the Mullet generation families. :D

   October 13, 2014, 08:01:11 AM  guest-804b: not sure who the mullet families are 

   October 13, 2014, 09:47:09 AM  guest-5179: You just messed up the word multi. Welcome to Forney where nothing gets by those who have nothing to do 

   October 13, 2014, 11:38:40 AM  guest-07a2: Mr Carroll has been a great addition to our school board.
