Big things are on the horizon for Denton. We’re talking about tackling broadband access and addressing the digital divide. We’re making strides toward addressing homelessness, mental health, and at-risk students as we work with community partners toward big goals. We’re embarking on innovative ideas to build into our economy and reignite entrepreneurship among our citizens. We are working to spark new life into areas of our town that haven’t seen investment in decades.

Today’s city council agenda continues this trend of pursuing big things for Denton. We’ll be discussing our Renewable Denton Plan, an ambitious energy plan designed to scale our already laudable portfolio of 40% renewables to 70% within 5 years. We’ll also be discussing a plan that brings a Convention Center and higher end hotel project to Rayzor Ranch at virtually no financial risk to the Denton taxpayer – a stated goal of the city for the last couple of decades.

We’ll meet at 2pm at City Hall to address these topics. Click here for the agenda with backup material.

I look forward to discussing both of these items with my council colleagues. As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns. Contact me at kevin.roden@cityofdenton.com or 940-206-5239.
