Stop Vista Ridge meeting, Elgin, Texas
We had another packed house, this time in Elgin on Wednesday night. We had more great feedback on our revealing “Stop Vista Ridge” video.
This coming Tuesday’s meeting (Sept. 1) in Lockhart has been moved to a larger venue — the Clark Building in downtown Lockhart (217 S. Main) from 6 to 8 pm. Details here.
The video shown at these events is coming soon to you on YouTube. When you get it, we need your help to share it with others to beef up our petition drive. Have you signed and shared the petition to Gov. Abbott yet? Go here.
Please note that if you live in Hays or Travis counties, what Vista Ridge means to you could well be faster growth due to increased water supply. We hope you’re already connecting the dots to unaffordability. It is the current residents who are picking up most all the tab for new roads, new water lines, new schools and public safety for the newcomers. Growth should pay for itself, but it really can’t due to Texas laws. Moreover, unbridled population growth and environmental damage are just two of the economic, social and political choices for which Mother Nature will exact her price from future generations.
The last thing central Texans need is hyper-growth over the fast-recharging Edwards aquifer and its sensitive recharge zone, fueled with water permanently removed from the very slow recharging Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer and its Simsboro formation under nearby rural counties. Watch for more on these points in the video.
