Tree Preservation Ordinance

Meeting regarding Tree Preservation Ordinance

This message is to inform you that the City of College Station is currently in the process of developing a tree preservation ordinance and would like to receive input with regards to specific items included in the draft ordinance. The proposed ordinance is based upon the direction given to staff at the May 19th City Council Workshop Meeting. It is intended to provide additional landscaping points for preserved trees and landscape plans prepared by professionals, and to require tree planting for each new platted residential lot. There are no other provisions regarding specimen trees, mitigation etc., as discussed at previous workshops.
In addition, a discussion will be held regarding a potential riparian protection program. At this time this is for discussion only. A draft ordinance has not yet been prepared, though some concepts have been developed and will be discussed at this workshop as well as at subsequent Planning & Zoning and City Council meetings. This item will be presented to the Planning & Zoning Commission and City Council for discussion only and not for final action.
A copy of the draft tree preservation ordinance will be sent out on October 26th  and will also be made available on the City's website. A stakeholder meeting is currently scheduled for Monday, November 2nd 6:00 p.m. at the College Station Conference Center, Room 101. This meeting will provide an opportunity to discuss the proposed draft ordinance and riparian protection program and provide additional input prior to the ordinance and discussion proceeding to the Planning & Zoning Commission on November 19th and City Council on December 10th.
For additional information please contact Matt Robinson in the Planning & Development Services Department by telephone at 979.764.3570 or e-mail mrobinson@cstx.gov. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to receiving your feedback and seeing you on November 2nd.

Urgent! Castlegate Fountains

As everyone is aware, last fall one of the back fountains was not working for a long period of time. The reason being, a very large piece of plastic had been drawn up into the suction pipe, thus causing the motor and pumping unit and all electrical components to burn out. The repair was very costly to the Association. Recently, the lower front fountain has encountered the same problem. There were pieces of styrofoam from to-go containers, as well as various plastic bags. Again, costing the Association several thousand dollars to repair the unit and get it working again. With that being said, please make sure to secure your trash in your trash containers at all times.

While walking or driving by our lakes, we would appreciate the community's assistance in removing any floating debris in the lakes. If you cannot safely remove this debris, please contact the management office ASAP and we will make the necessary arrangements to have the debris removed.

Thank you in advance for the community's cooperation.
