Pottsboro Hires Consultant to Plan for City Growth

7-22-06 – Pottsboro is taking cues from one of the fastest growing areas in the Dallas-Ft.Worth Metroplex. Frisco’s former Mayor, Kathy Seei, led the city of Frisco through rapid growth in the late 1990s to the early part of this decade.

Saturday, Pottsboro held the first of several planned development meetings to hear ideas from Seei. According to Seei, Tioga, Gunter and Prosper have also hired her as a consultant to help the city’s leaders plan for new growth.

At Saturday’s meeting in Pottsboro, dozens of residents, county and city officials met with Seei to discuss how to plan for new residents moving into the area to be closer to Lake Texoma.

There are about 1,500 residents in Pottsboro’s city limits and nearly 10,000 near Lake Texoma.

Community leaders say they plan to meet again next month.
