Q&A: Aledo City Council Place 2 candidates

(Continued)

This is not only a problem for everyday traffic and may hinder development, but it may also be a major issue in an emergency evacuation of the area. Planning of future streets and rights of way for the city is a function of the planning and zoning commission and the city council.

Having experience in both offices, as well as knowledge of development of real estate, I believe I can assist in the development of future roadways to alleviate this issue.

Future development on the northwest side of the city must include a thoroughfare reaching to the city limits.

Q. What makes you the best candidate for city council?

A. I am the best candidate for city council due to my prior experience on the Planning and Zoning Commission, as well as my experience as a current council person. In addition, I bring my experience in real estate, development and law, all of which benefit the city and its residents.

Q. What steps should be taken to make Aledo the best that it can be?

A. Aledo is on the verge of great things! The city council and staff have worked hard over the last several years to improve the infrastructure of the city: building a new city wastewater treatment plant, adding to the city water system by bringing in water from the City of Fort Worth, and the current widening of FM 1187 and the creation of the “Aledo Trail.”

The city is poised for an influx of development, not only residential, but also commercial and industrial

 It is important that the City of Aledo not promote development merely for the sake of development, but take an active role to encourage development that supports and promotes the city and its citizens, while bringing in much needed tax dollars.

It is vital that the city not become merely another bedroom community for the Metroplex, but retain its character and history into the future.
