Big Changes For Ward 1Apr 19, 2016
Last night’s, April 18, 2016, Moore City Council meeting included the swearing in of newly elected Ward 1 Councilman, Adam Webb. Mr. Webb defeated incumbent, David Roberts in a runoff election earlier this month. Webb’s election signals a big change for Ward 1 as David Roberts served its 20,000 residents for the past 16 years.
“The thing I look forward to most is just meeting the citizens and talking with them. I love interacting with them. That’s my favorite part, just representing them and getting to know the people,” said Adam Webb.
Adam Webb will have plenty of opportunity to make an impact within the Moore community as City Council Members also have leadership roles in the Public Works Authority, Risk Management Board and the Economic Development Authority.
Also on last night’s agenda was the 17th and Janeway development. The multi-family development will not only bring new housing but also recreation and retail space to Moore.
“I’m really excited about this project. This will be a destination project for the whole metro. It’s going to be a new urbanism project,” said Webb. It’s going to be a high density living space. It’s going to more of a natural place to live with a lot of landscaping and park area. It’s going to be an awesome place to live.”
This is just another example of growth and development coming to Moore. The layout of the 17th and Janeway project will incorporate extreme walkability as one of its key selling points.
“If you live there, you can walk to your local grocery store and take care of your errands and stuff like that,” said Webb.
