Tonight, the City of San Marcos Planning and Zoning Commission voted on a motion to approve the proposed development on the land over Sessom creek. The motion failed with a 4-4 vote. Commissioners Bill Taylor, Bucky Couch, Chris Wood, and Kenneth Ehlers voted in favor of the development. Sherwood Bishop, Curtis Seebeck, Randy Bryan, and Travis Kelsey voted against. A motion to deny also failed, and a motion to postpone the proposals until January failed as well.

So, now the proposal goes to the city council with no recommendation from the P&Z commission. This will happen tomorrow, Wednesday 12/14 at 6PM at city hall. Everyone and anyone who is concerned with the impact this development will have on our city needs to show up at the council meeting and voice their opinions. There will be a public hearing and everyone will be allowed 3 minutes to speak their mind. The developers will definitely be there, and they will bring as many of their friends along to speak in favor of the project.

Let’s all go up there tomorrow night and let our elected officials know that we want this project to be denied. If it can’t be denied, then it should at least be tabled until January. There are still a lot of unanswered questions about the environmental impact, traffic impact, quality of life to our neighborhoods, etc. 24 hours will not be enough time to address them.

See you there, San Marcos!
