When more regulations are increased, growth seems to suffer. Especially in small towns
morphing into Big towns with increased population.
10. Many developers are approaching suburban cities with an urban mixed use development concept
which combines commercial, retail, and multifamily dwellings in one package. What is your
assessment of the concept? Is it a good fit for your city?
Walter Clements, City of New Fairview Place 3:
It is it will bring jobs and yes water and more house tops that will help in taxes
Billy Moore, City of Rhome Place 2:
I absolutely do. Just south of Rhome, Texas is a great Community called Haslet, Texas where
we see apartments, a Walmart, several eateries, service stations, medical facilities all inhabiting
property next to one another. The biggest hindrance is that the buildings growth has far out
scaled the development of proper streets, room, to drive, and proper traffic light flow
11. Inevitably, as the city grows and new developments come which offer larger tax revenue than
single family dwellings, there will be longtime residents whose lives will be radically changed due
to displacement or loss of their lifestyles as they knew them. What is your message to them?
Walter Clements, City of New Fairview Place 3:
Some will accept some want no matter what growth offers

Be patient. Our area, outside the Frisco area, is absolutely one of the fastest growing regions in
Texas. Lifestyles are being enhanced immensely by all the developments we are being blessed
with in our area

Walter Clements, City of New Fairview Place 3:
No
Billy Moore, City of Rhome Place 2:
O heck no. No flipping way! That's what a lot of liberal Jackwagons in liberal, left wing dominated
communities during the CV19 fiasco. The liberal ones who demanded masks and closures of
schools and businesses, had people suffer the worst
13. Do you believe that the meaning of the language in our federal and state constitutions, statutes,
etc. are:
Walter Clements, City of New Fairview Place 3:
