On Wednesday, 22 February 2017, the President of the HOA met with the City of San Antonio to discuss their design of the Leslie Road Service Center. We are pleased to announce that this Meeting went well and we believe the City is meeting our concessions to the best of their abilities.
We asked for a 250 feet buffer of City owned land to join the 250 foot electrical HOA owned easement. The design now gives approximately 900 square feet from the Bridgewood community to the Vehicle Maintenance Building.
The layout of the center has been redesigned so that the mechanical and heavy equipment buildings and oil and gas tanks will now be towards the front the front of the facility, further from the nearby homes to increase safety for residents; as well as the movement of the wash tub basin to alleviate the smell residents were worried they would encounter.
The City will now be responsible for mowing of the easement, thus saving Bridgewood residents approximately $5,000 yearly.
The City will be planting trees and shrubbery on a ten foot earthen brim that will block the view of the Center from the residents.
The Center will be enclosed in fencing
The Center will be using downward facing lights to decrease light pollution.
Used tires will now be kept in covered trailers to avoid water accumulation and safety hazards.
