Frisco freezes out comment from near-town residents

In regard to the July 16 meeting on the town of Frisco’s economic development plan and the relatively low turnout at that meeting, the mayor is reported to have said, “I guess nobody is interested in the topic or they feel we are doing a good job,” or something to that effect.

As a five-year resident of the community of Frisco, I am very interested in the topic, and I do not think that the town is headed in the right direction.

Although I work, shop, and otherwise contribute to the town of Frisco, I feel that my comments are not welcome at such meetings because I live outside of town boundaries by about 200 yards. Nor am I the only one.

That was made very clear during Frisco Peninsula Recreation Area planning discussions and I understand that the same sentiment arose during this meeting as well.

Basically, the message is, if you don’t live inside the town boundaries, then your voice doesn’t count. I suspect that turnout would have been higher and a greater variety of input and ideas gathered if all community members felt valued.
