    Developers say the market isn't there for more upscale housing with bigger lot sizes? Why isn't effort being made to bring better paying jobs to Killeen? Average stay for soldiers is 3-5 years before they head to another duty station. Is there a need to keep building affordable homes when duration of stay is so short for military and with so many homes for sale and rentals readily available? Set higher goals as Killeen grows to south. Get decent paying jobs first that get people to Killeen and that keep people here after they leave military. Then people can afford to buy better housing and keep up house payments.
