    i think the traffic on 190 in copperas cove will be a lot better once the bypass is open, but i agree that the community could suffer as many of the small business will close. i lived in copperas cove over 20 years ago and finally was able to return here and retire. i loved this area, but upon my return nothing had changed, now since all the new construction is happening and i'm very excited to see this. i hate to drive to Killeen to get things I should be able to buy in Copperas Cove. i think as a lot of the business close on 190, the city needs to try and obtain a Lowes, or Home Depot and the city should try expand the business park, attract some companies who would build a factory that could provide good paying jobs for the community. There is a lot that could happen to grow Copperas Cove in the positive way. I just feel there is something holding back the City from leaping from the past into the future. We need new ideals, a new passion for growth and more for families with small children to do. Just watch as the cars leave the City limits and think, where are they going, i can tell you, to spend their time and money outside of Copperas Cove and thats a shame. The City needs to crete a panel that can seek what the community wants and needs, things that will make the living experience in Copperas Cove one that you never want to stray from. i know this would cost money, money the city will say it cannot provide. i say it it better to extend and expand than to wither and die. i love this community and want only the best for it's future, i drive through Texas and see things I wish we had here, maybe one day we will have city officials that are bold enough to make the change.
