Place 4, Planning & Zoning Commission
Director, Stonewater Home Owners Association
What strategies will you use to ensure open communication between City Hall and residents?
Expanding areas of access and dialogue by increasing the number of Councilmember engagements outside of City Hall meetings (e.g., Manor ISD, HOA, and other community events & association gatherings; posting on official manor social media platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter; and creating a question & answer section in Manor newsletter). Additionally, establishing councilmember social media pages and councilmember email address for more personalized interaction, and having City Council and Planning & Zoning Commission meetings recorded and posted in addition to the minutes and agenda.
What are your top environmental and land development concerns and how do you plan to address them?
Sustaining a decent mixture of agricultural (e.g., crop & livestock farming, breeding, etc.) and new age housing with the use of poor agricultural locations for housing first; to include, consistent yet contemporary landscaping. Regulating the use of chemical fertilizers, fuel, and raw materials to increase resident safety measures. Ensuring the City of Manor expands with municipal services as the focal point. Also, establishing and enhancing drainage routes to reduce farming damage and traffic rerouting. By identifying key stakeholders and their interests, effective messaging is established.
What is your vision for transportation infrastructure in your community and how will you advance it?
Increasing road construction to reduce traffic congestion via data collection to persuade stakeholders. For example, creating multi-lane expansions on 290 and Gregg Lane. Re-evaluating speed limits, especially on poorly improved or low-lit roads. Adjusting the timing of stop lights for increased traffic from newly developed and expanded communities. Official turning lanes where high traffic and high-speed is common, especially on poorly improved and low-lit roads. Also, increasing the number of street lights, particularly FM 973 and improvement of bad roads.
What other critical issues will you address and how?
Increasing economic development equally across all industries for total well-being improvement via
greater utilization of City produced resources. Ensuring business diversity equality relative to the growing population for a welcoming and representative culture. Establishing multi-purpose family entertainment and activity centers given the increased number of families by supporting entrepreneurship and small business ownership. Exceeding healthcare, mental health, and educational standards by actively measuring child and adult development centers to local, state, and national standards.
