Margraves Ranch Developement

Fellow Castlegate residents:

Many of you may have seen the notice on Green's Prairie regarding a re-zoning meeting. The Castlegate Board of directors would like to share the following letter (which has also been sent to the residents of South Oaks, Nantucket and Indian Lakes) from Karen Pitts, a South College Station resident, regarding an upcoming meeting later this week:

 

Dear Neighbors,
We have alerted you in the past to the City's land use changes that will negatively affect our neighborhoods along Arrington Road.  College Station's City Council has passed two multifamily apartment complexes (CapRock 10 near Blue Baker to generate over 1,600 cars/day and The Ranch near South Oaks to generate 1,800 cars/day).  The next attempt to rezone involves the Margraves ranch across from the Arrington and Harpers Ferry intersection, with an anticipated 9,000 to possibly over 14,800 cars/day that will push Arrington beyond  its capacity.  The intent is to change zoning from estate homes to restricted suburban/townhomes/possibly school and retail. The traffic overload that will follow does not include our existing traffic.  We must stop the City's rezoning before it impacts the safety of our neighborhood!

Please make your voices heard at the Planning and Zoning Commission public hearing on Thursday, May 18, at 7 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers, at 1101 Texas Ave. S. and at the City Council public hearing on Thursday, May 25, at 7 p.m. in City Hall as well.  If you cannot attend, please email your opposition to the Margraves rezoning (stating your wish to maintain estate homes on the tract) to City Planner Jenifer Paz at jpaz@cstx.gov before the P&Z meeting.  Final approval for rezoning will be at the City Council meeting.  For the City Council meeting email any City Council member or City Secretary Sherry Mashburn at smashburn@cstx.gov, requesting that your statement be included in the City Council minutes.

Karen Pitts, Chair
Tracking Roads Advisory Committee

 

Please note that the HOA office is unable to field any calls or emails regarding this meeting. 

You may direct all questions, comments or concerns to the appropriate city officials as listed in this notice.

Also to clarify, an "estate home" designation is defined as a >1 acre lot and the "restricted suburban" zoning designation is a 8,000 to 10,000 square foot lot. 

The Margraves Ranch development will occur south of Castlegate directly across from Greens Prairie Road.

Thank you, the Castlegate Board of Directors.

Podcast: Why does Mayor Mooney want to walk in your neighborhood?

Mayor Karl Mooney has a new way to connect with citizens: a monthly "Walk With the Mayor." In this episode of the city podcast, Mayor Mooney said he especially wants to connect with residents who may not feel comfortable coming to city hall but still have issues or concerns they want the mayor to see and understand. To listen to the podcast of Mayor Mooney talking with Public Communications Director Jay Socol about his thoughts on "Walk With the Mayor", click here

New "My Neighborhood Guide" now available

Neighborhood Services and the Public Communications Department revised the manual used by neighborhood associations and HOAs to organize and manage associations. The original manual was published in the early 2000's. The manual needed to be revised and updated to reflect the more current state and needs of associations. The manual is meant to be a resource for association leaders and representatives.  For a hard copy, contact Neighborhood Services to arrange to pick up a copy or have one mailed. For an electronic version, click here.

Video available of April Code Enforcement Seminar Supper

Last month's Seminar Supper was on the topic of Code Enforcement. Code Supervisor Julie Caler was the guest speaker discussing all things code enforcement. Since this always one of the most important topics, this video of the seminar supper is now available for viewing.  To view the video, click here

Parks Summer Guide is now available

The Parks and Recreation Summer Guide is now available for download. Hard copies available at City Hall, Stephen C. Beachy Central Park, Southwood Community Center, Lincoln Recreation Center and Larry J. Ringer Library.  The electronic copy of the guide is available here for download.

Neighborhood Services Office is moving

The Neighborhood Services Office is to the old Human Resources Office in City Hall. The new office will be just a few steps down the hall from the old office near the elevator. The City's Human Resources Office moved next door to the old Fire Station at 1207 Texas Avenue and in doing so provided some much needed additional office space for various city employees. The move should take place the week of May 15.

Mosquito Dunk distribution to begin May 22

Mosquito dunk distribution will begin on May 22. Like last year, all HOAs will go through neighborhood services to receive dunks. Applications for dunks must be completed and turned in when picking up dunks. Please call before coming to pick up dunks from Neighborhood Services to be sure the Neighborhood Services Coordinator is in the office and available to distribute the dunks.  Residents not in HOAs can pick up dunks from the City Secretary's Office, also located in city hall. Mosquito dunks can be picked up in the City Secretary's Office beginning May 22, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  To get more information on the mosquito dunks, tips to keep safe during mosquito season and the application for HOAs to receive dunks, visit the Neighborhood Services webpage here and check out the Mosquito Abatement Program tab.
