Hunter Stop Work Order Press Coverage – Love Hays

By , 1 November, 2014, No Comment

Questioning by local activists leads to discovery that site work at 1803 Hunter Road was being performed without permits. There are still questions about flood/drainage impact on neighboring properties from this non-permitted fill.

 By Rob Roark

The City of San Marcos put a stop to development work at 1803 Hunter Road, on property owned byRio Marc Development Ltd. when the city issued a stop work order. Work came to a halt there on October 17th after City inspectors found that the work was being carried out on an expired permit which had been issued in 2008, as well as without the required environmental permits.

After local citizen, Lisa Coppoletta, questioned the practice of knocking down large “Heritage” live oak trees, the city began to investigate these site improvements which had brought in tons of fill dirt and rock to this flood prone lot at 1803 Hunter Road. Contractors there had been hauling fill dirt from excavations at the nearby Purgatory Creek Bridge to fill in a 200 ft section of the property to a depth of up to 4 feet. Large trees which had died in the recent extended drought were knocked over and uprooted to allow access to the property owned by Mr. Carson’s company.

Hello,
Im following up from my phone call with Mr. Reyonsa yesterday (a) was my code suggestion raised that directly is related to this issue? (b) what has happened? Recall, we are all wondering if someone got a ticket or arrested? Really, the fire marshall has to come out? If this company were being fined 15K a day for this it would stop immediately. And, does anyone not see how this looks to the community what is happening with Mr. Carson sitting on the Code Rodeo and city staff are out of pocket to handle enforcement of current ordinances and instead at the SMTX Code retreat. If this issue (a) trees (b) fill w/o a permit with stiff fines does not get written in the code when we see this scenario playing out during this code re-write, then it really points to what a joke the 250K we are spending consultants. I have found the team building embarrassing, and I speak as a consultant who gets paid to work with Oil and Gas, Electric Utility. And, it begs question what other road construction projects have been operating w/o correct permits if project managers and permitting office are not doing their jobs to check this paperwork. Citizens should not have to spend all this time for something so simple.

I have invested time speaking with a tree expert and this person advises they need to take precautions to save those trees. As is right now they will die. Is it possible to transmit this information to them. I would hope they would know this, but have seen no action demonstrating this is the case as the fill is still compacting those poor heritage tree roots. 

yes trees can be saved . must remove all dirt back to original grade and out to the drip line of each tree from trunk . if they are really feeling generous they need to airspade all compacted areas of critical root zone , and add a thin  layer of compost out to drip line from trunk . and water the trees”

Lisa/Rob:
 
The property owner, Rio Marc LTD, has been notified that their floodplain permit is expired.  I have been speaking with Mr. Regan Lehman with Rio Marc.  He has already met with the contractor regarding how to address the fill in the critical root zone.  He was told by the contractor that they would be placing the fill so that it would not impact the trees – he is requiring the contractor to fix so Rio Marc does not lose the long term viability of the trees.
 
I indicated to Mr. Lehman that we would be providing him a list of the necessary submittals needed to bring this work into compliance.  I don’t have a time frame on when it will be approved.
 
Hope this helps – Laurie

Richard,

Can you please reply all so Rob is in the loop. What were the findings of the permit? My understanding from our phone conversation that no one will be fined for doing this work w/o a permit. Can you tell me if they are applying for a new permit and when or if that will be approved.

Lisa,

Attached is the permit provided by the contractor from the landowner for the placement of fill.  We are investigating the validity of this permit and working on actions moving forward.  After visiting the site there does not appear to be any immediate threat of flooding of a neighboring property due to this fill placement.

We are requesting from TxDOT any agreements or documentation between the landowner and contractor for placement of the fill.  This is not something the City or TxDOT are paying for as part of the project.

Thank you,

At what point for residents who care do we just throw in the towel? I’ve been involved on this project since all the problems began and Y’all really just take your sweet time don’t you. This is over two years of tree killing, land theft, favoritism for developers and disrespect to Native American cultural artifacts and human remains.

1. Where is the permit paperwork that this is on the up and up regarding Mr. Carson is getting FREE FILL, im sure lots of us would like FREE FILL. WHERE IS THE PERMIT? This can cause flooding on the other properties. The city is now enabling a developer to cause flooding. And, that area does flood, drive by next time it rains, it was flooding on Saturday in fact.

2. Those heritage trees are getting murdered by all the FREE FILL that is being piled on top of their roots. I am well aware that experts in the field of tree care have  inspected these trees with photos and unequivocally state these trees are being murdered…slowly.

3. They are digging very deep. The propensity to find human remains is very likely. Where is the required shovel test?

Where are the answers to my questions? Im going to write a letter to the editor If i don’t get some answers. This is an issue of favoritism and stewardship of trees as well as respect for human remains. Y’all get paid to do this we do not, and it is quite troubling that people who care have to keep sending emails on true concerns here in our community.

Each day you foot drag is another day a human remain or an arrowhead gets crushed and more fill is piled up on trees. Shall I take this that y’all don’t care at all by the time it takes to respond to legitimate concerns?

Hi Mr. Reynosa,

(1) The landfill paperwork. That they have a permit. This can cause flooding to other properties. That land is clearly now built up. This is in our city code as you know.

(2) Also the paperwork that says tx dot contractors can use private property for said work. There should be a paper trail in your office as this is a road improvement project. Because to the rest of the community it looks like someone is getting free work, not a shocker in this community.

Thanks.

SMTX Code Rode: Citizen cattle to nowhere consultant rodeo clowns

SMTX Code Rode: Citizen cattle to nowhere consultant rodeo clowns

by LM Coppoletta & Daniel Angel Scales

Thursday PM - Night 1 Rodeo Boondoggle 2

Thursday PM – Night 1 Rodeo Boondoggle

Rodeo, a noun defined as “a roundup of cattle.” So how is the SMTX Code Rodeo different?

OUR GOALS FOR LAND DEVELOPMENT CODE LANGUAGE BASED ON PAST SCENARIOS

We established on Friday at the unpublished 11:00 AM “Environment Technical Meeting” city staff and Code SMTX Think Tank members had not advised the consultants on the two toxic waste PERC/PCE plumes in San Marcos monitored by the TCEQ: one downtown , whose shape is changing due to the road construction and the other by Cape’s Camp off HWY 123.

25965_10152332926954855_2127979449_n

We would like to see ordinances protecting heritage trees with teeth, effluent fees for those that create hydrogen sulfide leaks such as Capstone Cottages, stiff fines for sewage leaks such as #floathome aka Woodland Acres aka Capes Camp.

10584043_10205095030805539_5682215098455258027_n

And, we would like to see fines for contractors who fill land in the flood zone with improper permit such as the Carson property on the Hunter Road construction project.  Mr. Carson was appointed by the City Council to the Code SMTX Think Tank.

Here is one suggestion at the meeting that we raised regarding shovel tests for public improvement projects be completed before developments begin. Not much encouragement from city staff members.

 

PROCESS EXPENSIVE & FLAWED

Out of state consultant ‘ramrods’ on the roundup trail require compensation. We were under the impression city staff and think tank members were gathering data from the community.

Imagine our shock when open records from this Friday revealed  cost to taxpayers. Where are fiscal responsibility principles?

Good Morning Lisa,

Below is the total fee breakdown from the contract.  The staff also sent me an email that was sent to you recently, I have attached that email  that provides the total contract amount of $250,000.  The Phase 2 amount reflects the total due for the Code Rodeo events.

Contract Info:

The total of all fees and expenses to be paid to the Consultant for Basic Services as described in Sections 1.1 through 1.4 is a not to exceed fee of $250,000.00.  This compensation is divided among the Basic Services.

1.1-    PHASE 1 – PRE-CHARETTE                 $  30,000.00

1.2-    PHASE 2 – CHARRETTE AND ON-SITE CODING         $  70,000.00

1.3-    PHASE 3 – DRAFTING THE CODE             $110,000.00

1.4-    PHASE 4 – MODELING, REVISIONS

AND IMPLEMENTATION                $  40,000.00

TOTAL PROFESSIONAL FEE:    $250,000.00

What we found interesting is that the perception in the development community as articulated by the consultants is that San Marcos has been:

“overrun by tree hugging greenies”

Why are we taking the snapshot of a few events to construct a Land Development Code when for years there is ample documented information on the fact that San Marcos residents attended design rodeos, open houses, planning and zoning, City Council meetings, workshops, wrote letters to the editor expressing concerns with building over the aquifers and next to the river and the ecological impacts associated with those developments?

Here is a TBT for the SMTX Code Rodeo from the time and energy residents took to express concerns regarding the Land Development Code in terms of Cape’s Camp.

THINK TANK MAKE UP

We both took the time to complete the applications and turn them in and lobby our elected officials for a seat by placing phone calls. After all, there was a community wide call for public participation. My name, Lisa Marie, was not even placed in the hat when it came to City Council board appointments. My husband, nominated by the Mayor and yet Daniel did not vote for Daniel. The same ole same ole were appointed. Another striking example of special interest board appointments in addition to Mr. Carson, is Mr. Chris Wood, who is the business partner to City Councilman Ryan Thomason was appointed, there was a discussion to allow him to sit on both boards.

I am doubtful that our suggestions at the SMTX Code Rodeo meetings we attended will be passed. Daniel and I remain hopeful that public pressure will change the tide. Because the only cattle that are getting rounded up are students from specific business disciplines at Texas State to attend these meetings and that data is being generated on their report out powerpoints.

The large majority of the cattle are in the pasture waiting for their moos to be heard. However they must work at night  or just arrived home from a long day at the office. But, maybe it’s the cash cow of the developers they really want to milk so it becomes cause for concern. This notion of one week of roundups meetings of which a select few can attend is completely preposterous.

IMPLEMENTATION : SCHEDULING AND TEAM BUILDING PARADIGM

Critical meetings on environmental concerns in San Marcos should not be held during the work hours and it is troubling that the schedule had been deleted from the city website for those that had a true desire to attend.

As someone who has been a paid consultant in the industries of Higher Education, Oil and Gas, Electric Utility, one of the most powerful tools in my kit is the brainstorming process. Brainstorming should allow for all voices, encourage group members who are not contributing ideas, combine ideas, not judge ideas. Thus far I have found the implementation of SMTX lacking in these key principles of brainstorming.

In the video below the group leadershipsocial roles,” behaviors that encourage relationships, participation, and resolve/mediate differences were lacking from consultants, think tank members, city staff. The consultant facilitator fails in his ethical responsibility to maintain a safe communication context, engaging in a “negative role” under group leadership theory as the “dominator.”

The Thursday meeting did not have a microphone for the audience when there was the discussion with the audience. I spoke twice directly with the facilitator consultant and he advises in this video he does not recall emanate domain. Well pull up y’alls video then. Are we documenting the meetings?

RE: Capes camp – 383

ToLisa Marie Coppoletta

Good Morning Lisa,

I was notified that our staff has contacted a representative from Horizon letting them know that we received an inquiry on the following statement included in the Cultural Resources section of the Statement of No Impact dated August 22, 2013:

    Miscellaneous historic and pre-historic debris was found on the project site during a cultural resources survey of the property. However, that debris was determined not to be significant.

 

 

We are currently awaiting further clarification and/or supporting data for the statement.  This is for the proposed private improvements located within the Woodlands site.

The representative stated they have conducted a portion of the shovel test as outlined in the scope of work of the Texas Antiquities Permit for the proposed public improvements.  They are currently waiting for direction from a Texas Historical Commission reviewer for the remainder of the shovel test.  Once the shovel test is complete, they will produce a report of their investigations.

We will forward information as soon as we receive it.

Thank you,
Elizabeth Trevino

#floathome – no public health warnings, polluters get off scott free from fines

By , 28 August, 2014, No Comment

Here is what happened – first press release from the City of San Marcos http://www.sanmarcostx.gov/index.aspx?recordid=2430&page=34

Thank you to Christie Maycock for this meme!

Official city response is posted below regarding my inquires yesterday about public health warnings and fines for the contractors/developers regarding the aforementioned press release sent out yesterday. This is the second time I have asked for public health warnings after a major sewage leak by a contractor and the city has refused to post a public health warning.
———–
“Good morning, Lisa,

The area where the discharge entered the river is well below any of the public access areas in San Marcos. The discharge would be thoroughly diluted by the time it reached any other public accesses points downstream.

TCEQ has regulatory jurisdiction. We do not know what, if any, action they will take.

For our part, we do not anticipate the City will assess a fine since the contractor notified us of the break immediately and assisted with mitigating the discharge and repairing the damage.

Best,

Trey Hatt, CPC
Communications Specialist”
