2 News Release | "City of Rockport Responds to Anonymous Letters"

Posted: June 13, 2014 at 4:42pm

There has been a great deal of speculation circulating in the Rockport area about the parcel of land at the southwest corner of Highway 35 Bypass and Pearl Street/FM 2165. Most of the speculation and wild rumors are the result of anonymous letters delivered to local residents under cover of darkness. The Rockport City Council and its employees continually operate with transparency and in the best interests of the community. The anonymous letters contain many factual errors and appear to be worded to capitalize on residents’ fears rather than pursue an interest in truthful dialog. 

1. The City does not own the property described or any other at that intersection.
2. There have been no real estate transactions concerning this property.
3. There have been no building permits filed for this property.
4. There have been no landscape plans filed for review under the City’s tree
5. There have been no requests for changes to the property’s existing R-1 single family
6. There have been no requests for utility service to this address.
7. The City has not received notification from any state or federal regulatory agency preservation ordinance about pending environmental permit applications.

In the event the City should receive any applications concerning the property, they would be available for public review and would go through the normal public process, including, as appropriate, direct mailing to nearby property owners, public hearings, published notices, and posting on city council or committee agendas. In addition, environmental permit applications from state or federal agencies also require publishing of local notices seeking public input.

The City is ready to respond to citizen questions anytime and welcomes the opportunity to do so. Residents can always have the most current information available to them by being notified directly which issues of interest are being discussed in City Council meetings as well as meetings of any of the City’s various boards, commissions, and committees. Visit www.cityofrockport.com and select the “Receive Notifications” button on any page.

Whoever is publishing the misleading letters is invited to help the City Council ensure transparency with residents and step forward to schedule a meeting with Mayor C.J. Wax or City Manager Kevin Carruth by calling (361) 729-2213, ext. 221.
