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”
 
Thank you for your time, Lisa

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

I am CC Mr. Rob Roak,

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.

Thanks, LMC

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.
