Subject: Re: Trees dead on hunter -4 heritage onesAt 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?LM Coppoletta
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.Sent from my iPhone

>> Just a follow up. Whose property is getting cleared? Are they paying for that or are the taxpayers ? I’ve been told it is Mr Carson’s. Please advise.
