North Star Pointe Grand Opening Sales Event

Oscar Rohne, president of North Star Pointe, asked me to let our readers know that this coming Saturday and Sunday, November 19 & 20, will be a heavy traffic day as many people come in to visit NSP. Please be very careful and courteous on the roads. Let’s show our potential new neighbors just how warm and friendly we all are here in Wise County.

North Star Pointe Changes Plans for Cozy Cove Estates

When the property owners of Cozy Cove Estates learned of North Star Pointe plans to put in an exit road from NSP on to Cozy Cove Ct., they sent a letter to NSP protesting the plans. Cozy Cove Estates is a very small development with only one road ending in a Cul-de- Sac. Property owners were concerned that the construction of a road through Cozy Cove would significantly alter the characteristics of Cozy Cove Estates, which in turn would have a negative impact on Cozy Cove property values and on the quality of life of its residents.

This past Monday I received a call from Oscar Rohne of North Star Pointe. After having received the certified letter, and feedback from neighbors, he has decided to revise his plans. He said that he wants to be a good neighbor and does not want to cause problems for Cozy Cove Estates. He said that he has decided that there will be no road connecting NSP into Cozy Cove.

Cozy Cove residents are delighted with NSP’s positive response and look forward to a continued neighborly relationship with the new gated community.

More Trans Texas Corridor Sites

One of our readers was kind enough to send me links to some additional Texas Corridor Web Sites:

Trans-Texas Corridor

Excerpt: "Porkus Maximus Tex: A giant, voracious subspecies of pork-barrel cronyism inhabiting the Lone Star State. Will thrive in a climate of apathy, or when given little or no attention by citizens, who are unwittingly consumed.”

On Eminent Domain
"Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, an El Paso native, laid it out: 'Any property may now be taken for the benefit of another private party, but the fallout from this decision will not be random. The beneficiaries are likely to be those citizens with disproportionate influence and power in the political process, including large corporations and development firms. As for the victims, the government now has license to transfer property from those with fewer resources to those with more. '"

You can easily send a message to your state representatives regarding the TTC.

Here’s an excerpt from the message:
“Taking one-half million acres of Texan's land, to exclusively generate revenue at the expense of open government, private property rights, and thousands of Texas communities will not stand.”

It will consist of four truck lanes, six vehicle lanes, two high speed passenger rail lines, two commuter rail lines, two high speed freight rail lines and 200 feet of corridor designated to house underground pipelines for utilities such as water, natural gas, oil and fiber optics. This same 200 feet area will also accommodate overhead tower electric lines.This series of toll roads or “four priority corridors will parallel:1-35, I-37, I-69 (proposed) from Denison to Rio Grande Valley;I-69 (proposed) from Texarkana to Houston to Laredo.1-45 from Dallas-Ft.
