Seems the City is working on plans to extend Bourland Road north to the new Marshall Creek Subdivision. To me, that is fine and dandy, the road extension is on the thoroughfare plan and residents up in that part of town knew one day the road would be built.
It also seems the City is thinking about putting a round-a-bout at the corner of Bourland and Mt. Gilead, and in doing so, would take some residents back yards and one persons front yard in the process.
They have reached out to the City Council and the Mayor with hopes of finding a resolution. What I’ve heard is that they have been asked to delay any meeting with the City Council until after their next meeting after they are briefed during an executive session (which is not open to the public).
Maybe if some of the individual City Council members could reach out before the meeting, then they would be up to speed when the city attorney briefs them about their options of stealing buying their right of way from these tax paying residents.
