Year In Review : 2017 (UPDATED)

Coming Improvements In Killeen

More improvements are coming to Killeen, according to the city’s “CIP” (capital improvements program), which I found here (9.6MB, pdf). Several will affect us here on the south edge of the city, initially with construction frustration and eventually with improved infrastructure:   Featherline (north-south road right next to our neighborhood, to the police headquarters) will[…]

2015.08.17: Fifth House-iversary
