  • Harbor residents want promised landscaping improvements

    But the trees are gone. Now the view is of a hotel and a parking lot, with bits of lake on either side.

  • Collin, Denton debate future Dallas North Tollway extension

    By ED HOUSEWRIGHT / The Dallas Morning News

    A simple line on a map could translate into billions of dollars for either Collin County or Denton County.

    That line represents a proposed extension of Dallas North Tollway, and the adjacent counties are squabbling over the alignment because of the economic bonanza it could bring as homes and businesses spring up around it.
