Public Forum Wednesday Night included citizens input and suggestions and TXDot
Representative Emphasizing "do it our way or get nothing!"

See Video of TXDot Representative Brian Barth

Another interesting aspect of the public forum, was the Colleyville City Council members, in particular Mayor David Kelly and Councilman Mike Taylor offered the citizens no input for the reason they initially approved a Hwy 26 construction with medians.

See TXDot's Barth's answer to citizens offering alternatives to the median solution.  Note particularly the comment from  Barth, the TXDot representative, that "we don't build these without medians."  Apparently the medians on Precinct Line are invisible!  Ask why North Richland Hills and other cities turned down the median option, the answer was, "I don't know why."

Do You Want a Median Down Hwy 26?
The Colleyville City Council held a "WorkShop" on October 28, 2014 to discuss the Highway 26 Design.  A "WorkShop" is  sort of a private meeting amongst council members and their invited guests, while citizens have no input.

This “workshop” is all about financing the project, with the new wrinkle of the state dedicating the highway to the city, NOT to discuss the median.

The City of Colleyville would take on all the future costs to maintain and re-develop.  

In the meantime, the city is simply going to cram the median/zero lane expansion down the residents’ and business’ throats – no surveys, no impact assessments – apparently just because the Mayor wants a giant landscaped median – no other reason.
