    This has to happen, the traffic here is too much for this small place and there is enough land to get it done. With all the future projections about the population growth in the area, the city will need to expand. I must say I don't see the future growth, I see Fort Hood troop levels drawing down which will result in a exit of military families, empty homes and i think, so where will the growth come from. The new Texas A&M Campus? Will this draw others into the community? i just don't see it happening in the future, there are no good jobs in killeen outside of Fort Hood that can draw the type of growth the area needs. If the city wants growth, they need to draw some large factories who will come in here and provide good paying jobs for the community, it's time to stop living off the coat tails of Fort Hood. I come full circle, so what does Killeen have to offer for those companies who could come here, provide good paying jobs and contribute to Killeen? What's the answer, it's not Fort Hood, it's outside of Texas, draw those companies into Killeen, we are a great community with lots of History. I just hate to see the same old thing, nothing but talk and waste.

    Mayor doesn't want to do it if we can't afford it? City has been able to afford huge water waste all these years to water municipal golf course. After all these years a solution on that total waste of precious water has finally come to fruition. If its less expensive to expand Trimmier with the 190 expansion then just do it! Quit thinking of jamming businesses like proposed CVS on Trimmier if you can't spare the money to expand it. Cut the funding to KEDC which has done next to nothing to bring in jobs to the area & start looking at impact fees. These people want to grow Killeen while sticking to the old way of managing money woes. Dark Ages ended in the 15th century but Killeen's government wants to act like times of scarcity are still ongoing. Cut the waste & the money will be there. A CPA can surely offer a better solution to manage money rather than don't do it if the money's not there.
