Last week, at the County Commissioners Court during a preliminary plat request, Elaine Cross asked some very good questions pertaining to fire protection plans to accommodate the increased number of subdivision plats being approved in the county. If approved, last week's request will be the third development by this developer in Commissioner Liesmann's precinct since November, 2011. In response to Ms. Cross, the developer did not have any good answers. The only input offered from the court was from Commissioner Wood, “This is something to ask the developers for future development.” Commissioner Wood is correct. This would be a good time for the Commissioners Court to review county subdivision regulations to ensure responsible development to minimize risks to current and future Blanco County residents. The recent fires and drought conditions have placed burdens upon our county that cannot be ignored. A responsible developer will follow the lead of the Commissioners Court regarding requirements. It is now time for the Commissioners Court to responsibly lead.
