To Brick Or Not To Have Bricks, That's Squarely The Question

The future of some of the bricks on the Square in Cooper were the main topic in a recent Cooper City Council meeting filled with over 20 concerned citizens.

Agenda item 7: Discuss and possible action on a resolution allowing Texas Department of Transportation to do a study on state row street maintenance involving portions of the Square that are now covered with bricks. Several concerns were raised about saving the bricks.

The streets in question are Dallas Avenue on the south side of the Square and First Street on the west side of the Square, which are maintained by TxDOT.  Cooper Mayor Darren Braddy assured the group that no underhanded decisions are being made and this is simply asking TxDOT to provide options to update and improve those sections of the Square. The resolution received unanimous approval by the Council.

In connection with the study, Mayor Braddy announced that a Town Meeting is being planned for Monday, Oct. 30 at City Hall from 5 to 7 p.m.

The Cooper Review is also gathering public feedback on the issue with a survey that can be found in both the Oct. 19 and Oct. 26 editions.
