Mike Rawlings on Environment

 


Parks & recreation are critical to Trinity River Project

Q: The city's Trinity River Project has run into a number of roadblocks during the last few years. Beyond upgrading the levees, what parts of the project should be prioritized, and how will they be funded? Is the toll road a viable option?

A: The Trinity River Project will transform the City of Dallas. Our first priority must be making sure the levees are sounds and the surrounding communities are safe. I also believe it is critical to complete the parks and recreation component of the project, not only for the quality of life for our families, but for economic development. At some point the traffic concerns of the city will need to be addressed in a manner that allows it to complement the other parts of the project. The roads we build must be done in a smart, cost-effective manner that does not further burden our taxpayers.
