The North Texas Municipal Water District’s use of eminent domain to lay pipeline through the Heard Museum’s meadow and wet lands preserve will be discussed in the McKinney City Council work session next Monday, the 17th, and will go before the McKinney City Council on Tuesday evening, May 18th. The public may not speak at the work session but they can at the City Council meeting on Tuesday. Residents are encouraged to attend on Monday to be informed and again on Tuesday to put your thoughts on record. You can fill out a comment card if you are not comfortable speaking before the Council. The mayor will read them out loud for you. Be sure to include your address or else it can’t go into the record. Councilman Ray Ricchi will present a Resolution in support of the Heard during the Tuesday City Council meeting. Citizen comments are limited to 3 minutes a piece.
The Heard really needs a public show of support. Right now, the situation does not look good.
Also to be heard at the Monday City Council work session is the request by the First United Methodist Church to demolish the Lamar Street post office. My understanding from the Executive Director of the church is that they are wanting to build a building in their current architectural style either in place of the current post office or in place of the parking lot across the street from it. I have heard some conflicting information about whether it will cost more to replace or renovate so the working session should be interesting.
