From the Desk of Dianne Edmondson — January 2019

Dianne Edmondson, Precinct 4 County Commissioner

As you read this, the wheels of my first tenure as your Precinct 4 County Commissioner will already be rolling down miles of roads along west Denton County.

From every pothole to each crack in the asphalt surface, it is imperative that you know we are thinking about you. We want you to feel free to reach out – whenever, however.

Communication is a two-way street. Your voice is important to me. All it takes is an email to [email protected]. In turn, I promise to keep you informed about road projects and other county-related matters through email blasts, newsletters, columns and even on social media.

Precinct 4 represents 18 different communities with many experiencing tremendous growth – recently, now or on the horizon. This growth brings more industry, retail and homes, which equates to more traffic.

With 2019 now here and 2020 just around the corner, there’s much to do. Our fast-paced growth is bringing new issues to the forefront. While some welcome the growth, others prefer slow growth or, in some cases, little to no growth. One community might prefer additional residential development while another seeks commercial expansion to diversify the tax base or bring more job opportunities. That is what makes this precinct so unique.

I also look forward to meeting with mayors, council members and other area officials to hear your concerns, listen to your ideas and help develop short- and long-term plans.

It is an exciting time as new housing developments sprout in Argyle, Ponder, Justin and Flower Mound, new businesses move into Double Oak and Denton, and Charles Schwab opens and expands in Westlake. Lantana is working on the last of its neighborhoods just as Northlake is seeing a development boom. Roanoke continues to build on its reputation as the restaurant mecca of the region while Bartonville and Copper Canyon prefer to keep their rural flavor intact. Southlake continues to support its shopping destination title as Krum continues to lure convenient businesses to the precinct’s northern corner.

Every community has different challenges, different goals – each as important as the other.

As your representative on Commissioners Court, I look forward to planning future projects with your input. Together, we can tackle any issue and create solutions that best serve you.

After all, that is my job – to serve you.

It is such an honor to be your Precinct 4 County Commissioner – an honor taken very seriously. I am excited for this opportunity to work for and with you in the years to come.

Contact Precinct 4 Commissioner Dianne Edmondson at (972) 434-3960. Her office is located in the Southwest Courthouse, 6200 Canyon Falls Drive, Suite 900, in Flower Mound.
