LAW SESSION Development Processes and Building Material Ordinances after the 86th Legislature

3

I think the discussion was decent, however not every planner that comes to these conferences works for a city. I work for a home builder and I work with small cities all the time. I am able to explain the thought process of the city to my employers. In addition I find that most of us on the other side want to work with cities and comply or find a common ground. There was at least one man who was anti development and it was a turn off. I appreciated those on the panel that said they had not had negative experiences with developers but he was very negative and a bad representative of what I believe can be a good relationship between cities and developers.

MW3 – Biking the Brazos Bike Tour

5

This tour introduced me to a side of Waco I've never seen and I'm already making plans to bring my family back and share with them. The trail offers beautiful Brazos River views and provides Baylor students and others an alternative to the car by linking a number of destinations on off street routes. I appreciated the support of Bike Texas with bikes and logistics.
