Krum should focus on expanding their roadways. The town is growing at a rapid pace, but it's small 2 lane main roads has trouble keeping up with the population at busy times. It would be nice to see Krum add sidewalks so kids aren't walking in the ditches on main road. With all the expansion, a small grocery store, like Aldi, would be a perfect addition to Krum!

Krum is a really small town. This is a really good thing sometimes, but a bad thing sometimes. The good thing is everybody knows just about everybody. And the bad this is also everybody knows everybody. Life seems kind of routine here. There are only like 5 stores in Krum. This is something I'd like to see change. I'd like for us to grow, and work on adding more to Krum.
This is a small town with the city nearby. It is for people who want a relaxing hometown experience with the amenities of the metroplex at your fingertips. It is a good old-fashioned walk home from school, play in your neighborhood, or out in the country kind of little American town. People love one another here.
