Mayor Mike Foreman and city council are seeking volunteers to put together ideas for what Friendswood needs in 2019 and beyond.
The mayor asked for community volunteers through his latest video that is sent by email to city news subscribers and placed on the city website for anyone to view at any time.
His latest video released on Feb. 12.
He is seeking citizens to volunteer for the Citizens Advisory Committee. Foreman and council members want to hear what the committee feels is needed in the city.
Foreman recounts successful committee work that brought about changes for the city. He mentions Woodlawn Dr. in Friendswood as one of the past advisory committee suggestions for improvement. The bond of 2013 paid for this to be completed.
It also paid for expansion of Fire Station 4, the building of a new fire station, and the renovations and expansion of Friendswood Public Library. The bond also assisted with the acquisition and improvement of park land that brought the city Lake Friendswood.
The mayor feels that drainage will definitely be an issue the new committee will discuss but encourages more ideas along with deciding what is needed in 2019 and the city’s future.

“It’s a big commitment but that’s part of dreaming big in Friendswood,” Foreman said.
