Hi, The builder developing the community I live in sucks. I wish I knew before I bought my house but too late for that now. There are still several homes being built in there but quite a few homes are occupied at this point. The builder has been littering and polluting the ravine with a lot of construction debris and hasn't cleaned it up in 6 months. Several homeowners have complained and nothing has been done. I was informed that they can be fined for this. Where would I report it to have them fined so they will stop? I already called 311 and they put in a request but I think that is a request to have the ravine cleaned. I'm not looking for anyone to clean it. I want the builder to be fined so THEY will clean it and won't do this anymore. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
Noticed both notice of variance signs, and reasonably sized plots of land being cleared along the northwestern edge of the East End, mainly near Kennedy St. There is one lot on the corner of Jensen and Kennedy, Just south of the Buffalo Bayou and across from Guadalupe Park (currently being renovated), which is being cleared, along with the stretch of Kennedy St. between McAlpine and St. Charles being removed. Wonder if multiple decent sized lots could be connected for some form of multifamily development? Not a lot of info on this one that I am aware of. Anyone have a clue? Further along Kennedy St., 2 blocks, first one bounded by Kennedy, Live Oak, and Nagle (To the north are the Silos), and the second one bounded by Nagle, Kennedy, Middle, and Freund, have variances signs up. Both of them are referred to as "East End by the Bayou", with Asakura Robinson as the point of contact. Any idea what this is? I imagine townhome communities, just didn't know Asakura Robinson did that kind of projects. Further down on Nagle (near Fox St.), 2 lots have Urban living signs up. While not extremely shocking, it is a bit surprising given that there isn't much there quite yet. Finally, where Kennedy dead ends, there is another relatively large lot being cleared, just south of one being sold by Pinto. Does anyone know anything about these developments?
Riding my bike down buffalo bayou today and I ran across Buffalo Bayou Partnership working on the trails on the South side of the Bayou East of Jensen. They were clearing trees and preping for more bike trails. Also talking with them they have the contract to finish the trail on the North side and have access to KBR lots property. Other cool stuff going on is the boat racing down there.
I've been complaining about the way Brays Bayou looks for some time, and now it seems that they are going to try to make it look nicer, as well as accommodate more water. I noticed yesterday that the bike path was closed from Almeda to the "Columbia Tap" trail bridge to the east (near Ardmore street). I found this info online about the construction at this bart of the bayou which started on June 21. http://www.projectbrays.org/news/2010-0708.html I always complained about the fact that Brays had so few trees along its banks compared with Buffalo Bayou, but hopefully they are going to fix that.
