      • “San Marcos will begin work on a third H-E-B“By Bri Watkins – 

        “Lisa Marie Coppoletta, San Marcos resident, said the property should remain a green space. She said one of her main concerns is sinkholes that could potentially form, along with carbon monoxide filling the air.

        “Being a good neighbor is communicating with your neighbors,” Coppoletta said. “Residents know their neighborhood, and they know their community, but they are being completely locked out of the process.”

        The public deserves to be a part of this conversation, Coppoletta said. She is proud of her community for letting their voices be heard at the last city council meeting.

        Coppoletta commended the time the city staff has taken to inform her on the issue.

        The official report of flood maps from FEMA has not been finalized, and the City postponed discussion to September.”
