The planning commission used the term "Recreation" for areas along canals to stop development and help with drainage. They also decided to use this "Recreation" land use designation for the Valero Energy buffer zone to lower residential, commercial, and industrial future development. The Comprehensive Plan adopted the definition of buffer zone as a landscaped area. And, Valero Energy planted a row of trees to comply.
Now Valero seeks changes which are very disruptive to an entire neighborhood.
The item is advertised for another planning commission public hearing on April 26 2016 at 4pm in council chambers
