Multiple Conroe residents shared concerns with a proposed 150-home development, Colliers Pointe, at City Council’s workshop July 21. Citizens' main issues center around the main access road, safety and flooding.
The proposed main access road to the development is on Old Country Club Road off of FM 2854. Resident Betty Rice, who said she has lived in Conroe for 40 years, said at the meeting it would make the road unsafe, and it is not fit to be an access road for 150 homes.
Rice suggested the main access road be on Brown Road instead.
Kari Schmidt, who first brought concerns about the development to the council June 24, said the development would worsen flooding in Wroxton Estates, where she lives. She presented to council a video of flooding in Wroxton Estates after rainfall in June.
Rigby Owen Road, which runs through Wroxton Estates off Hwy. 105, is another proposed access road for the development. Schmidt also suggested Brown as the main access road for Colliers Pointe, instead.
“I hope that’s what’s considered,” Schmidt said. “For the citizens of Conroe, please hear us.”
The council did not discuss Colliers Pointe during the meeting as the development was not on the agenda. However, council members had discussed it during its July 7 workshop.
“I feel like we do need to take care of our neighborhoods. I feel like we do need to be proactive,” Council Member Marsha Porter said in response to multiple citizen concerns.
Director of Capital Projects and Transportation Tommy Woolley said at the July 7 meeting he would speak to the developer of the community about moving the main access road to Brown.
