GREAT NEWS!!!! A resolution opposing toll roads and the SH 249 Toll Road project in Grimes County was passed by Grimes County Commissioners Court on Tuesday morning, February 10th. This is a huge step, and follows on the heels of the Town of Anderson passing a resolution opposing the SH 249 project last month. In a further indication of support, the City of Iola passed resolutions against the SH 249 Toll Road and the BVC/CTT electrical transmission line projects on Tuesday evening. Iola issued a letter opposing the Texas Central Railway HSR project in January. THANK YOU IOLA!!!!!!! Also, a special thank you to County Commissioners Pam Finke and J.R. Green for sponsoring and supporting the toll road resolution in Commissioners Court. Commissioners Barbara Walker and David Dobyansky voted in favor of the resolution as well. THANK YOU COMMISSIONERS!!!!!!

 

WE ARE STILL TRYING TO ORGANIZE OPPOSITION TO THE BRAZOS VALLEY CONNECTION/CROSS TEXAS TRANSMISSION LINE PROJECTS!!!

If you want to help, we need to hear from you. Send an email to grimescitizenadvisory group@gmail.com and indicate a desire to be involved. If we do not achieve a certain level of community participation, we will NOT be able to STOP this project. Do not count on someone else to stop this project for you. 




If you own property in Grimes County, it is in your best interest to become involved to stop eminent domain in our county.  Grimes has 4 threats to our land:
