Question: Why Should Residents of Widefield Attend Fountain City Council meetings?

Answer: The Council makes decisions that will affect us in Widefield.


Last updated 1/16/2019 at 2:26pm

At the Jan. 8, 2019 meeting, the Fountain City Council voted and changed the zoning of the park/open space land across from Mesa Ridge High School, NW corner, to commercial property. What is being planned is a convenience store.

We may be annoyed by the winding road Syracuse and the speed limit. However, the road goes by three schools and enters a residential area. If developed, this store will impact the traffic, students, and law enforcement. It will require redesigning the road; right now there are no funds for this. Developing this corner will create problems. What do you want our neighborhood to look like when you enter?

The park/open space is a habitat for deer and a hawk.

Growth? Progress? Were we asked if we want/need a convenience stone? At what price? It's all about money.

This issue will return for another vote on second reading- you can check the city's website ( to see the agendas for future meetings to watch for when this will happen!
