those college students encourage me to keep doing the Poets Corner Sardonic Humor to Lindsey Hills so..here is the first part of my “Attention Getter” to my speech for Tue…who knows things always change
— for context Lindsey Hills is gonna have a “poets corner” after they get us super sick with air quality concerns…its so special……–that’s this developer’s game plan “a poet’s corner” ohh I’m swooning

 

Will Lindsey Hills pay my bills
When it floods out my Belvin Belle Casita
You call your complex “Hills”
Which confirms my concerns
That you will create a berm
Especially with your elevated hills sidewalk
Which means its developer thrills
And FEMA bills
Its local monies
Its state monies
Its federal dollar dollar billz
That your thrills for the highest Hills
(vs. IH35)
On my Belvin Block

Lindsey Hills Aggregate Aggravation

This is just surreal city staff would allow this in the Historic District

LAND USE: THE BIG PICTURE OF WHAT THE CITY STAFF ARE APPROVING 

Consistent with the above stated purpose, the proposed PDD plans for a mixed-use development as illustrated in Figure 1-1 within the PDD Standards Book and as summarized below.

  •   Hotel: Located primarily along the Blanco frontage and a portion of the Hutchison frontage. The hotel component plans for a maximum of 120 rooms and a maximum of 17,000 sq.ft. of additional associated space to be used for meeting rooms and additional amenities. This includes the old Lamar School gymnasium and auditorium buildings, which are proposed to remain.
  •   Retail: Proposed to front the Hutchison and Moore Street frontages. There will be a maximum of 17,000 sq.ft. of retail space at these locations. This square footage includes the potential for an 8,500 sq.ft restaurant.

  •   Multi-Family: Proposed to front the Burleson and Hutchison Street frontage. The multi-family component will contain a maximum of 164 units which equates to 34 units/acre. The “MU” Mixed- Use District allows up to 5.5 units/acre. Total bedroom count be limited to a maximum of 226.
  •   Office: Proposed as an alternative scenario within the area planned for multi-family along the Hutchison Street frontage. Limited to a maximum of 27,000 sq.ft. of office space. In the event that the office space is developed, the multi-family unit maximum will be reduced to 144 units and 199 bedrooms, in order to ensure for appropriate parking relative to each use.

COMMENTARY

Since the age of 19 to 47 years old I have been an environmental activist in San Marcos fighting for my neighbors. Friends told me when you buy a home everything changes. My friends were right; I love all aspects of home ownership. So I participated in the land development code revision process called SMTX Code Rodeo.

 

I feel like a fool for having faith in the City of San Marcos process to protect my homeownership investment. Two plus years attending countless open house meetings and think tank meetings only to find at the end of the process proposed Lindsey Hill development on Belvin Street.

 

CoSM has known about Lindsey Hills for months. Being duplicitous with the public rounding us up like cattle with little sticky notes and small group meetings with occasional opportunity to engage the facilitators of the sham public outreach process has been expensive to the taxpayer in the end.

 

The City likes to use the buzzword “buffer zone.” This development is instead a snowball, which will devastate the Historic District. Glitzy SMTX Code Rodeo brochure states the “Heritage” neighborhood should have parks or community gardens and instead we get a proposed development of 120 rooms hotel which would be the second largest in town, and 174 room apartment complex, parking garage, and retail big water users. The sure immensity of it just boggles the mind.

 

Speaking of water, proposed Lindsey Hills is on Balcones fault, over the Aquifer, next to caves, on a hill, in a flood zone. What a splendid idea for more flooding of FEMA dollars after creating a berm on all sides of proposed Lindsey Hills. We all know Hunter Road floods. So those of us on Belvin caught between Hunter and Lindsey Hills will get the floodwaters from both sides. The city promised us they would take flooding into account in the future when examining these proposals. City planners have no analysis on flooding on file for Lindsey Hills.

 

What a perfect storm for a sewage leak. What a glittering example of excavation toxins of dirt floating down Belvin Street for joggers and moms with baby strollers to inhale. And, asbestos and mold from demolition of the building will also be blasted down Belvin. What a shining example of toxins from new construction. And then the finale will be carbon monoxide from the parking garage, increased delivery trucks and tourist cars. This is ionic after the CoSM public relations taking of a bow defeating a truck stop in Kyle. City Staff have no issues blasting the Historic District the next two years during construction phase with every fume known to modern humanity.

 

The San Marcos Independent School District knowingly crafted a legal agreement allowing Lindsey Hills developer to create a moving target for his proposal. In the future the school board should be more proactive in protecting property values of taxpayers.

 

If the public matches Scott Gregson’s campaign finance reports to the Lindsey Hills developer there is a bingo moment that will make your jaw drop. Scott Gregson needs to recues himself from this vote and any future votes downtown impacting his financial investment. It is quite clear Mr. Gregson does not care about my financial investment. My first home.

Selective Enforcement Ordinance

Greetings,
 
Rodney Cobb advised first these “plastic eggs” were biodegradable. He advised he called the Pastor and the Pastor advised that these eggs had Styrofoam. The ordinance is quite clear NO Styrofoam. Rodney has admitted that he did not get documentation from the church and “trusted them.”  However, his trust was misplaced because apparently he did not take the time to educate the pastor, nor did the pastor take the time to read the ordinance. I am not sure what is going on between Parks and Rec and the Fire Marshall’s office but now Mr. Bell has advised that Rodney advises there was no Styrofoam. I would like to review (a) the application for the 40K egg drop and its approval. (b) some assurances from CoSM this will not happen again. Rodney has refused to make these assurances.
 
This is clearly an instance of favoritism and I am not sure why this is happening. Hispanic families cannot celebrate their Easter barbequing and drinking sodas out of Styrofoam cups, but the Chuch from Kyle gets to drop 40K Styrofoam eggs. My concern is valid and clearly getting the runaround by both offices covering each other’s backs. This is not fair enforcement. I would like to know what the City Manager’s Office is going to do since both of these offices are clearly not doing their jobs. Residents have found these eggs and here is the video as proof. I am not a police officer and the claim that we should produce the evidence is preposterous and completely out of concern citizen’s purview.  If this cannot be resolved I would like a meeting with the City Manager ASAP. I’ve been getting the runaround and stall tactics since this occurred.

HI Rodney,
Hope your Easter is rocking. I just read the article about the 50K egg drop out of a helicopter. So, can you enlighten me how it does not violate the plastic ordinance. Did we go “biodegradable” this year and was supporting paperwork actually provided this time around to verify those are not harmful to the river? Are they all picked up? Recall last year members from the public observed lots of trash. Thanks, LMCthe website says “What an amazing day today, 1,000’s showed up as we dropped 50,000 eggs from a Helicopter!

Hi Elizabeth,

I called for this info on Monday. I have followed up a few times. They would like for me to fill an open records request. To that effect, I am requesting the following items and have added item #6 to my verbal requests.

1. Paperwork filled out for the Easter egg event with the helicopter.

2. How much the Church paid for this.

3. Was the Church charged for additional city staff at the event, my understanding is there were not only clean up workers.

4. Specific product information regarding eggs that were dropped out of the helicopter and the manufacturers data of the what those were specifically made from.

5. Country in which the eggs are manufactured.

6. E-mail correspondence among city staff and among the Church and city staff from when the paper work was filed until today at 11:00 AM among city staff on this issue.

Respectfully, LM Coppoletta

15 dollar dollar billz not fact checked by press

By , 10 March, 2016, No Comment

Y’all news media did not fact check your article quotes….THERE ARE NO MEDIAL expenses the city is paying that Mr. Gregson claims in his sound bite 

http://foxsanantonio.com/news/local/san-marcos-trying-to-recruit-companies-that-pay-at-least-15-an-hour

“When we have a company that comes in and basically uses our workforce at that lower wage, we find ourselves in a position that we’re subsiding those workers at our food bank, in our health care system,” said Councilman Scott Gregson.

He said the change came after a report in January that said visits to the food bank had increased and so had unpaid medical bills that the city was forced to pay.

PLEASE FIND OPEN RECORDS PART 1 – THE MEDICAL EXPENSE PURPORTED DATA

My request was for grand
totals of (a) travel and (b)payment. All I need are two
numbers. I’ve already seen all this years ago. Can they
please just do a little addition from the excel spreadsheets
for two grand total numbers. My request was very specific
and precise.
