Where do you all see the future of Fort Bend County ? Our population has reach 627,293 and is growing more and more everyday with no signs of stopping. I live in Sugar Land and I can definitely see the growth. If we were a city we would be the 7th largest city in Texas, just after El Paso ! I'm starting to wonder if Fort Bend is going to have to start thinking like a big city rather than a suburban area. For example, with transportation, Hwy 59 (I-69) is always backed-up and needs relief. Highway 6 is a nightmare, Highway 90 is starting to get crazy. Thankfully the Grand Parkway is being built out to 59. Maybe turn highway 90 into a tollroad, connect the Fort Bend Tollroad to South Post Oak in Houston, Commuter rail that reaches all the way to Richmond and Rosenberg, and maybe turn the Fort Bend Transit System into a full bus service system. Thats just one area of concern. I even see the day when the Sugar Land Airport turns into Houston's third major airport. It's just a Regional airport now but flights are constantly coming one right after another, even at night. It's the busiest small airport I ever seen. What do you guys think in other areas as well like education, real estate, economic development, crime, health care, etc. All these issue are coming up fast in this county and we have to find some answers soon.
A young woman from Houston successfully landed her plane in a Conroe street after an engine failure. http://blog.chron.co...owntown-conroe/ The pilot, Sarah Chantal Rovner, was doing a Civil Air Patrol flight from West Houston Airport to Lone Star Airport. This was at night, with few visual aids. She had completed around 100 hours of training before the accident flight. It was a very skilled, successful emergency landing. She has been compared to Chesley Sullenberger by one news story: http://www.39online....0,5920169.story A video about the event is here:
