I am in the process of planning a County Facility that will be placed just outside of town. We have assurarnces it will be annexed so I don't believe that will be a problem.
We are currently have some offices in a historic downtown; Courthouse, tax office, county records, juvenile etc. We also have offices three miles away in an old walmart; DA, Public Works, adult probation etc. A facility committee has met for the past three months, at least twice a month all of these meetings posted and notice given in the local papers. They have presented twice to the COmmissioners Court.
The location is currently rural with roughtly 6000 lots planned in the next five years with very little retail or commercial. The location is just 2.5 miles for the current courthouse. WE plan to have a planned development with mixed use, office, commercial, retail, parks, etc. I know at some point the public will say we planned this without them.
I guess to make a long story short, how do you know when enough notice is enough?
