As the political landscape changed and fiscal spending increased, we knew that tax increases were in our future. There will be some wrangling in Congress but it is clear that in the end we are likely to see income tax rates go up and taxes on capital gains and estates become more punitive. Before the year is out it would be a good idea to schedule a visit with your estate planning attorney. Of course, tax changes will affect your investment portfolio and how it is structured. Now might be a good time for a complete review of your portfolio. If you are not already a client of ours, feel free to contact us to schedule a complimentary review of your investment game plan. Let us help you prepare for the changes ahead. MONTHLY COMMENTARY

WORTHWHILE CONVERSATIONS LIFE AFTER MARRIAGE DEVELOPING A PLAN B…

WE’RE DISCUSSING THE FINANCIAL CHALLENGE FOR NEW WIDOWS AND DIVORCEES… There is a gender gap in family financial planning. According to the regularly updated study on Financial Experience & Behaviors Among Women , a minority of married women are “taking the lead” or “taking control” of financial planning decisions. A tilt to ceding this leadership to a male partner could leave them feeling unprepared if they find themselves suddenly single by death or divorce. WHAT SHOULD THEY BE DOING DIFFERENTLY? In having worked through this several times over our 50-year history, we think there are three keys. First, get involved. This applies to men or women who are in a habit of leaving financial management to their partner. It is OK to delegate but don’t be completely disengaged. Be aware of the financial accounts and investment assets that represent the “engine” that is pulling the financial train. Attend meetings with financial advisors to be aware of what strategies are being considered.

OKAY, THAT IS NUMBER ONE. WHAT ELSE? Second, have a back-up plan for succession of financial management before the non-involved spouse suddenly finds themselves alone and in charge. A relationship with a fiduciary wealth advisor can be the wealth management succession plan for the family should the fully engaged spouse die or become incapacitated. Call it a “Plan B.” In one recent survey, 78% of widows and widowers described the loss of their spouse as the single most difficult and overwhelming life experience they could remember. Not the optimum time to be crafting a new financial plan or picking an advisor… AND NUMBER THREE? It is a good idea to “take a vacation” from any crucial decisions during transition. Get connected with a reliable source of advice and counsel, an advisor who in addition to being a legal fiduciary, is backed up with a team possessing four key specialties: Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Financial Analyst ® charterholders, financial planners, and attorneys familiar with estate planning. We have that team in place and are ready to meet with families that need to develop a “Plan B.”

J. Harold Williams, CPA/PFS, CFP ® , and Lauren Rich, CFP ® , consider potential financial challenges faced by new widows and divorcees.

TRANSPORTATION Montgomery County collects local feedback on thoroughfare plan predicting future trac, growth

BY ANDREW CHRISTMAN

thoroughfare plan may aect trac, particularly with proposed projects going through residential communi- ties such as a proposed collector road at Alden Bridge Drive to Egypt Lane. The board of directors agreed to request trac studies regarding how the proposed plan will aect The Woodlands following the June 2 meeting. According to a news release from the township, the board commended the removal of some proposed roadway projects it had previously opposed, including the extension of Branch Crossing Drive north of Research Forest Drive to FM 1488 and the extension of Gosling Road north of Hwy. 242 toward the city of Conroe. Regional perspective The county is working with rm Brown and Gay Engineers Inc. to update the plan. BGE representative Megan Siercks told county commis- sioners during an April 27 meeting that the new plan includes more than just thoroughfares. “There are collectors; there are local streets that all make up your mobility,” Siercks said. “We want to make sure we are capturing what is happening in the county today.” According to a news release from Noack’s oce, the updated plan will incorporate ndings from the 2016 Precinct 3 South Montgomery County Mobility Study as well as the ongoing Precinct 2 and Precinct 4 mobility studies. Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley has been working with the Houston-Galveston Area Council on a mobility study focusing on how growth around the Hwy. 249 toll road will aect trac and crashes in the area. The mobility study began in September 2020, and initial results indicate congestion, school trac, hospital access, and the lack of north-south and east-west connec- tivity are factors, Barbara Koslov, senior transportation consultant with Gunda Corp., previously said. Following the public comments, commissioners will consider nal approval in July.

available online through June 11. The interactive map showed amendments to the previous plan, such as roads that were added, removed, realigned or reclassied from 2016 to 2021. Local reaction The Woodlands Township board of directors held a special meeting to discuss the proposed plan June 2. Gordy Bunch, chair of The Wood- lands Township board of directors, said at the meeting he was concerned about some proposed changes. The board as a whole expressed concerns about how the 2021

Montgomery County ocials sought community feedback on the county’s thoroughfare plan through mid-June, updating the previous plan from 2016. According to information from Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack’s oce, the new plan will pro- vide a map of proposed and existing thoroughfares and collector roads throughout each of the four precincts in Montgomery County. The study helps the county identify trac ow patterns and predict future growth. In an eort to increase public feed- back, Precinct 3 made the information

about $8 million and it will take two years, according to WMPID, which also said developers may partner on funding the project. Right of way clearing has begun, and the county is handling construc- tion plans and engineering, Precinct 2 Commissioner Charlie Riley said. “It will get people o of a lot of these little roads around here, which will help the movement of trac tremendously,” he said. However, ocials in The Wood- lands, who previously opposed extending Woodlands Parkway to achieve similar ends, voiced concerns about the project. “The renaming of The Woodlands Parkway extension to Woodtrace and shifting its connection to FM 2978 a quarter-mile south of Woodlands Parkway does not materially change the project,” board of directors Chair

A road project in Montgomery County Precinct 2 aims to add an east-west thoroughfare to alleviate congestion on FM 1488. However, some residents and ocials in The Woodlands said the project is merely the Woodlands Parkway expansion they have already expressed opposi- tion to, under another name. The new road would extend Woodtrace Boulevard from Hwy. 249 to FM 2978. Trac volume on FM 1488 is expected to increase, with more than 5,000 new homes planned or under construction for the area, according to the Westwood Magnolia Parkway Improvement District, which will fund the rst portion of the road from FM 2978 to Dob- bin-Husmith Road. The cost for construction of the 3-mile extension is expected to be

Gordy Bunch wrote in an email. The Woodlands resident Alex Fremuth wrote in an email he is also concerned about the project and hopes that a resolution can be established between the parties. “Moving the new road a quar- ter-mile south will create a bottle- neck on FM 2978 between the end of

Woodland Parkway and the begin- ning of the Woodtrace Boulevard,” he said. “If Woodlands Parkway could be extended to end on Woodtrace [Bou- levard] maybe one half-mile west of FM 2978, it may avoid creating this bottleneck and at the same time cre- ate a desirable area for new shopping and other infrastructure.”
