Here is an example of what to say, but anything is fine. Be sure to:
1 - Reference Air Permit 109839 for Tex-Mix concrete batch plant in Spring Branch on Highway 281 just south of Rebecca Creek.
2 - Point them to our website: neighborsofspringbranch.org
We need your help. We
need you to tell your Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) Commissioners
to not approve TCEQ Permit ID
We are members of the NeighborsOfSpringBranch and we are
trying to stop a Tex-Mix concrete batch plant from being built in our
Spring Branch neighborhood on Highway 281 just south of Rebecca Creek Road. We have adhered to the TCEQ process over the last four months,
attempting to block this concrete batch plant.
Residents have posted over 280 opposition comments on the TCEQ website. We have completed the 2nd comment
period and are awaiting the written responses.
We have kept our Texas Senator Dr. Donna Campbell, our Texas
Congressman Mr. Doug Miller informed, but except for commiserating with us, we have not
received any help that appears to be affective.
We have discovered that our Texas
government doesn’t appear capable of protecting citizens property rights.
An original homestead family, who have been in this location
for over 150 years, one member of which currently suffers from COPD, have
already requested a Contested Case Hearing in case the Air Permit gets issued.
The TCEQ has a history of issuing Air Permits in spite of
neighbor opposition and the health intrusion.
Comal County Commissioner Jan Kennady has done all she can
to help us, and she arranged for us to meet with Tex-Mix on Sept 16. Unless the two realtors we have working with
Tex-Mix find another more suitable location, we are afraid the plant will be
built, trampling on the residents that are already neighbors. Our property and retirement home is within a
quarter mile of the proposed location. We have discovered our rural hill
country quality of life is very vulnerable.
We got the chance to alert Lt Gov. Dewhurst to the problem
and asked for assistance at a Tea Party Patriots meeting Sept 9th in
More information about our struggle can be found at our
website http://www.neighborsofspringbranch.org/Please tell your TCEQ Commissioners to not approve Air Permit 109839. We believe you must act before Nov 1.
