The Rowlett City Council convened an Executive Session during the August 7 City Council Meeting "to consult with and receive legal advice from the City Attorney relating to the Bayside project and the Development Agreement."
At the conclusion of the session, Council released the following statement:
“We have adjourned the Executive Session and there is no formal action to be taken at this time. Contrary to published reports, the City has not scheduled a news conference. This is our public statement regarding the Bayside project.
City Council is not in agreement with the plan presented on July 26. Bayside is a legacy project. We have to do this right. The stakes are too high.
Council is seeking additional information from the developer to see if collaboration is possible.
We will continue to keep the public informed.”
