With a new town manager, a new initiative has launched in Flower Mound.
Since assuming the role of town manager in January, James Childers has wanted to get out in the community and see how residents feel about their town.
As residents have gotten out of their houses more, there seemed to be no better time than July to invite residents out for a series of town hall meetings to hear their thoughts on the town. Representatives from the Town of Flower Mound gathered at Argyle High school on Wednesday and at the Community Activity Center's Pecan Room Friday to hear what residents love about Flower Mound and what they would like to see more of.
After introductions from Childers and Assistant City Manager JP Walton, residents answered survey questions and broke out into small groups to discuss the answers to those questions.
“We’ve hosted two of our four FloMo Convos community meetings at this point, and we’ve seen several themes emerging,” Communications Director Melissa Demmitt said. “In both sessions, participants said they love Flower Mound’s safety and recreation opportunities and feel it’s a great place to raise a family. When it comes to improvements, participants most often stated traffic, and we also heard that they’d love more shopping and dining options, as well as entertainment amenities and things to do. Looking to the future, participants stated they want Flower Mound to continue to be family friendly and retain its country feel and attention to open space.”
The town will hold two more meetings on July 20 at the Flower Mound Public Library, 2 p.m. and July 25 at the Flower Mound Senior Center, 6 p.m.
