County to look at laws for growth

Jack County Commissioners voted to retain the legal services of Allison, Bass and McGee for professional services regarding establishing subdivision regulations and ordinances in the County. During Monday’s regular meeting of the commissioner’s court, County Judge Keith Umphress said that Precinct 2 Commissioner James Brock has had a pair of land developers contact him recently concerning possible new subdivisions in the southeastern portion of the county.

Umphress said the developers are used to working in Parker County. Umphress said it will be an educational process to go through this but suggested the county talk with Wise County officials, which reportedly has some of the toughest rules and ordinances on this.

“Everyone wants to be more restrictive on this,” Umphress said. “This is something we really don’t want to play around with.”
