Subject: Bastrop
Comment: With the people came the changes. We were saying the other day that we wished we took pictures of 71 in the early 90's when it was still a small highway in Bastrop. We still miss the little HEB and the little Walmart...and the country that lined the highway. Now it just looks like Austin. We do like having more choices but, at the same time, we liked it just the way it was. - mc

Subject: big box stores in Bastrop
Comment: I have read the comments regarding the desire to attract more "big box" stores to the Bastrop area. I think it is extremely important to thoroughly consider all sides of these initiatives. As a native Texan who grew up in a small town, I saw so many families lose their generational businesses due to what some people consider progress. What are the consequences to pay for allowing this kind of growth? Is Austin not a perfect example? Review what some smaller towns are doing to preserve their integrity. My in-laws live in Collierville, Tennessee. Read about how they are working to keep their community from being sold out. Some people may find it too restrictive, but there is a price to pay for convenience in the long run. - jm
Editor's Comment: True. Some factors though-young people had to leave to find jobs. Old people had to drive on dangerous highways to get certain services. Many small towns have lost their hospitals. Many small family businesses have closed over the years because their children have moved to the cities and they don't have anyone to carry on the business. Plus Amazon and other large mail order businesses have affected so many family businesses. Bastrop has been in both situations, but have preserved their past while looking forward to the future.
