Buenos dias, Neighbors! As most of you have probably noticed by now, there is a new development in progress on the southeast corner of Bryant and 33rd. I have been calling around and speaking with a few people with the city of Edmond and representatives of the most adjacent property, Cheyenne Ridge Villas. I was preparing to attempt a description of our conversations and what it might all mean, but another fellow neighbor of Cheyenne Ridge, Tom Scherm, has been very helpful in asking questions of our city council representative, Darryl Davis and being in communication with other city representatives as well. I am very glad that I will not have to paraphrase or risk misquoting any of our city staff or representatives while attempting to keep Cheyenne Ridge neighbors informed. Therefore, below are messages sent out regarding the development:
Monday, October 7, 2013: Mr. Scherm:
"Thank you for your note to Councilman Davis and please allow me to respond on behalf of the City. A land disturbance permit was issued a little over a week ago by my office for this project. At this point there is not a violation of the PUD, as the clearing and filling of dirt is consistent with the erosion control plan that was submitted and approved as part of the permit process. Also, the earth disturbance has not created additional runoff up to this point. When I toured the site last week there was still a significant tree buffer remaining between the work site and the houses. At this point it is our understanding that no more trees will be removed until a final site plan is submitted. We will continue to closely monitor the site for compliance with the permit. If the permit is violated then the developer is subject to fine by either the City or the state (ODEQ). The City Council approved this PUD at their March 25th meeting this year, and the minutes of that meeting are attached."
