I find it interesting how numbers become inflated over time. First the number of certified signatures on the petitions became 5,000, now the number of acres to be dedicated as a park in Oak Grove is 600!
Did anyone else think it completely silly for Council to be making motions on who was going to write arguments for and against and rebuttals for the Council-sponsored measure? I tuned out of the meeting then.
One thing I think important on the June 26th meeting on this topic is to pay attention to what the Greenbriar representative said. Usually things spoken by developers at such meetings can form into the basis of future litigation. We saw it happen with Oak Grove...

Yeah, you get those yellow postcards in the mail about upcoming votes at council meetings that affect you as a property owner and the boiler plate makes it clear that you will be limited in your rights if you don't speak up at the meeting about the subject that bothers you. THAT'S WHY THEY COME AND SPEAK UP. What is said is always the basis of the next lawsuit, if filed. Happened at the Oak Grove vote. Go listen to the tape of that meeting in November.

That's all we need, another developer lawsuit because of some vague initiative language and Councilmembers who are more interested in whoever screams the loudest rather than protecting the public interest from such lawsuits.
