Email and Attend Planning Commission Tues., Feb. 26!

25 Feb 2013 by admin, Comments Off on Email and Attend Planning Commission Tues., Feb. 26!

Today, Tuesday, February 26, please email the Planning Commission and ask them to support the General Grounds Improvements to the Pool.  The Planning Commission will consider the plans and decide on a recommendation to City Council.

Their emails are listed below.

Two informative background documents:

After you email, please plan to attend the meeting and sign up in support! The meeting will be at 6:00 pm at City Hall, 301 W. 2nd Street, in City Council Chambers.  Free parking is provided in the underground lot on Lavaca.

Last week, the Codes and Ordinances subcommittee of the Planning Commission voted to move the plan forward to the full Planning Commission, with the condition that City staff come back with options to implement the projects without increasing impervious cover due to the paving and expansion of the parking lot.

The next day, the Environmental Board voted to approve the projects, also with the condition that it not increase impervious cover – suggesting that parking or other impervious cover be removed elsewhere in the Barton Springs Zone.

FBSP strongly supports the idea of no net increase in impervious cover in the Barton Springs Zone.  We urge the Planning Commission to recommend in favor of the plan, with conditions regarding the impervious cover if they deem it necessary.

Thanks for your support!
