As we settle into 2012, we may find ourselves wondering what’s in store for us in the coming year. Some may be looking to change careers, grow their families or generally better themselves.
In a sense, our communities are hoping to accomplish the same goal. The Woodlands Township will continue its expansive governance study in order to better inform its residents of the potential effects of a possible vote for incorporation in 2014. The City of Oak Ridge North is revamping its economic development efforts in order to increase its revenue so that it can provide better services to its residents. The City of Shenandoah will see at least one high-end residential development open its doors this year, and possibly two if plans go through.
This month, Community Impact Newspaper examines those efforts and why they are important to residents.
This year also marks a personal milestone. In 1982, 30 years ago, my family moved from the FM 1960 area to the Village of Panther Creek. As a child, The Woodlands was my playground: endless miles of bike paths, parks, forests, and sports fields. As an adult, not much has changed: in many ways, The Woodlands is a playground for adults, as well.
What’s most important to us is that we provide the news and information that is important to you, so we encourage all feedback.
Be sure and check out our revamped website at www.impactnews.com. It is a work in progress, so let us know what you think.
