  1. Pretty good job Triton. Yes, it is about "connectivity" to Columbia Tap Trail, but I have grave reservations about using Dixie avenue as it is narrow, no bike paths, no sidewalks, and is used currently by lots by Grocer Supply 18 wheelers. Dixie has potential as it sits tangent to the Catholic Diocese Retirement Center. As a 20 year runner and biker who lives in this area, it is a "long time coming" and would not be achieved without the tenacity of Bill Coats standing up to CoH Parks and Recreation Director, according to his own account at the Groundbreaking Ceremony. I wish they could have be

  2. Well, speaking as a cyclist that travels through this area nearly every weekend, I would have to say this is a smart location for a bridge. This bridge *I believe* is mainly for the people who like to take the bike trail that goes over 288 which is part of the Columbia Tap Rail Trail. This would allow people to take Dixie Dr, cross Almeda, and then take this bridge to get over to the other side fairly quickly. Why is this quicker? Well, at the moment, if you come down Dixie Dr from the 288 bridge, then you have to bike all the way down Almeda to MacGregor and once you're on MacGregor you have

  3. You can see a highway being built on this aerial view just south of Cleveland. I think it's the SH 105 bypass. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=patton+village,+tx&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=32.335236,86.044922&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Patton+Village,+Montgomery,+Texas&ll=30.320507,-95.092764&spn=0.034674,0.084028&t=h&z=14

  4. Being able to confirm your vote was counted or track others votes would entail some form of honesty, integrity, or openness from the city. You will not get that from this mayor/city council. This ordinance has been pushed in every single dirty way they could. I would not be one single bit surprised if they just decided not to count some of the votes and just declare that they were not received, or that the writing was ineligible, so they dont count it. Having not seen the ballot, if you have to fill it out yourself as opposed to them having filled the information out properly for you - it

  5. Funny to see HAIF's most infamous creator of false 'facts' accusing others of making things up. Even funnier that the poster who accuses the City of a grand conspiracy in the Walmart thread dismisses any talk of conspiracy in the historic districts, even though one need only read how the vote is taken to see the conspiracy. The fact is, we DO have good reason to believe that the vote will commense immediately after the meeting, because we have been told so. The fact that the City has not created a ballot yet means nothing. They started our 30 day petition process before they even had a peti

  6. The extent to which it is apparent that he may agree with you is extremely limited. You've said a lot of things. And all this guy said was that this number by itself doesn't mean much.

  7. The meeting is just to discuss the ballot process. What info do you have that the City will send the ballot out immediately following the meeting over the holidays? According to your leader, Bill Baldwin, the City hasn't even come up with a ballot yet. But the facts have never mattered. Any claim you all can make is fair game, like claiming that the City will have the power to determine what political signs you can put in your yard under the ordinance, regardless of whether the claim is actually true. Why don't you grow up and call Marlene Gafrick and ask her when the City plans to put th

  8. Good luck. We'll probably end up with a fat, squat, forgettable, building much like that new hotel in downtown. Ugh.
