Today the Texas A&M University System provided further details behind their request for Senator Creighton to file Senate Bill 1964. Looking to the future, the system envisions an opportunity to develop up to "only 178 acres" of the state forest for the purpose of establishing what amounts to a campus in the region.
Texas A&M believes that the best route to begin the discussion around this concept is to seek legislative authority to move forward with the project... Before a project is even planned, budgeted for, or presented to the community it will purportedly serve. It's almost like asking us to go steady before we have a first date.
We think this may be putting the cart before the horse, but would appreciate hearing from our neighbors. Share your thoughts below and on our Facebook page. And stay tuned as we plan for more opportunities to have your voice heard by Texas A&M and Senator Creighton.
