Cove needs more family restaurants. I was hoping the resurrection of Ches's would fit the bill, but the experience there was so, so bad. Something we maybe already have in Killeen or Harker Heights but a branch in Cove. Chili's? A steakhouse? Olive Garden? I also agree with those requesting another grocery store on the other side of town. I find myself using Walgreens more often for groceries which is more expensive but less hassle.

Our area needs a Project Lifesaver program for children with autism and adults with dementia. Not only is this a FREE program through grants, it enables law enforcement to recover loved ones in a safe and timely manner. The closet PLP is almost 50 miles away and does not reach into Bell & Coryell counties. Please help bring the Project Lifesaver program into our area!
Coffee shops are too loud and it still makes it hard to study or work in the library without an enclosed room. Home is a distraction of chores and other obligations. Why not have the city move all the computers out of the enclosed glass room next to the other computers and make that room a quiet room?
During the Workshop there were 2 comments that I found appalling and 1 I found spot on. Although I was given the opportunity to voice my opinion to the Council I didn't because I did not feel I could maintain my composure after hearing some of the profound statements coming form our city officials.
1: A City official noted that they've opened Pandora's box. True statement. However, you (City Council) we're elected to represent THE CITIZENS of this city, not your own agenda. It's your job to make those hard decisions that require effort. If it's too hard for you, step down.
2: A Councilman noted when questioned to move discussion to next months agenda, (and I summarize,) is there a need to? His question came across (in my opinion) as if he felt that they had enough information to vote and his vote would be no.
This statement was made after the presenter noted that "it was close" referring to the "for & against" comments that were procured via paper and electronic survey to citizens. I beg to differ but the "fors" outweighed the nay sayers. I myself have no interest in having chickens but feel that it's the citizens choice and our Councils job to uphold the majorities choice.
3: A citizen commented to the Council concerning a comment made by a Council member concerning noise. He countered it with a comment about Dogs barking. Extremely valid point! How many of us have neighboring dogs that bark throughout the night and you're concerned with a few cackling chickens? Please... Wish the Council would put in half the effort concerning our current code on domestic animals (with emphasis on dogs) as they are apparently putting into this "chicken bill."
The "city" is noting that they're getting relatively little input from its citizens concerning chickens in the city. Why not open up the "discussion" portal of this site thereby allowing the citizens one additional channel to make their voice heard?
I saw a FB where someone suggested a day where everyone in the community put their "trash" on the curb and if you see something you like, you take it. Trash to Treasure concept. I would plan this the same time the bulk pickup is scheduled that way, whatever is not picked through, will be picked up. It would have to be done by Area obviously. Something like this may keep some items from landing in the landfill.
Add on patios should be built from at least 60% new material and conform to certain standards of construction.
I would like to see some bike paths close to where I live.
I think we should have a Day of Community Service, similar to what Austin does, each year. Groups, clubs, organizations and individuals gather to cover the city and do a day of service helping others. Clean up yards, parks, streets, helping with exterior painting touch ups for those that are unable to do so, graffiti clean up, and anything else we can do to help our neighbors and community.
Beef up the ordinance on trash in yards such as old tires,old lumber, inside furniture and appliances that are not hidden by a privacy fence.
