Collin County Needs Your Voice & Your Involvement on June 26

Collin County is booming. Those of us who live here and do business here see it firsthand as we watch the massive influx of top-notch retailers, service businesses, home builders and professionals into Plano, Frisco, McKinney and so many other great cities.

But with growth comes growing pains. As the Dallas Morning News’ Brandon Formby reported in its May 24 story, ensuring Collin County has the transportation infrastructure to support rapid, substantial growth is a concern. Similarly, Formby pointed to the pressing need for additional quality schools in these high-growth cities, quoting Frisco Mayor Maher Maso as saying: “The secret isn’t in chasing numbers, but in providing ‘the quality of services and education’ that people want…Seventeen years ago, we had five schools…Today, we have 61.”

81 Business Organizations Support $200 Million Appropriation for Texas Enterprise Fund

The Collin County Business Alliance recently showed it's support for the Texas Enterprise Fund in a letter to Gov. Abbott, Lt. Gov. Patrick, Speaker Straus, Comptroller Hegar and the Senate & House Budget Conferees. Here is an excerpt from the letter: "We represent more than 20,000 member companies throughout the state. Our people and our companies have benefited from Texas' economic strength. Despite tremendous job creation in the last six years, we are mindful that Texas lost 25,000 net jobs in March 2015. As Texas' economic growth moderates, the importance of recruiting blue-chip company relocations and expansions grows. Please make all efforts to achieve a minimum $200 million investment in the Texas Enterprise Fund.

CCBA_proposition1Allen American

As Texas, in particular Collin County, continues its rapid growth by attracting new businesses to the area, it is vitally important that our community has the infrastructure to accommodate this growth. It is for this reason that the Collin County Business Alliance (CCBA) urges the passage of Proposition 1, which would allow for more than $1.6 billion to be transferred to the state highway fund to help in the construction, completion and maintenance of our state’s roads and highways. Our county has taken center stage in recent months, following the decision by Toyota Motor Corp. to move its North American headquarters to Plano from California.
