We applaud the Lost Pines Groundwater Conservation District’s decision yesterday to extend the comment period on the proposed settlement with Forestar Real Estate Group until December 16th.
They have also cancelled their meeting this Wednesday (tomorrow) and have yet to put out a notice of when the District will deliberate on the decision, but we believe the date will be December 21st -- so pencil that in.
Please come to our meeting instead tomorrow night (see more below).
We thank several local officials who quickly responded to our calls to slow this process down in order to fully understand the deal. Please note that neither we, nor any of these officials, have expressed any position on the Forestar deal…yet. We, at the League, are not opposed to it, though at this time we do have concerns so please come out tomorrow night to our (LIV) meeting:
Special Meeting on Proposed Forestar Settlement with Lost Pines -- Open Discussion
Wednesday, Dec. 9, 6:30 – 8 pm , First National Bank of Bastrop
489 Highway 71 West, Bastrop, TX 78602
We will share our concerns about the Forestar settlement offer and open this up for discussion.
Feel free to bring friends, but please note that water marketers, and their allies, are not welcome at this private meeting.
Are you a local official? You are more than welcome to attend. We will in no way assume that because you are present you are adopting our position and will assume that you are present simply to understand our concerns.
A SPECIAL CONGRATULATORY NOTE!
In our previous emails, we failed to congratulate EPICC (Environmental Protection in the Interest of Caldwell County) for their victory. We attended their wonderful fundraising event and took this picture. Click here for more details on their “Bump the Dump” victory.
Got questions? Call us or show up tomorrow night!
