Meeting was held at the Christian Family Baptist Church and also through Zoom. It was called to order at 6:32 PM by President Gabriel Lara.
Prior to the business portion, Stephen Tzhone of the EPA made a presentation regarding the status of the River City Metal Finishing Superfund Site Project. The Risk assessment has been completed and no unacceptable risks were found. Public documents for this study can be found at https://cumulis.epa.gov/supercpad/SiteProfiles/index.cfm?fuseaction=second.scs&id=0606915&doc=Y&colid=36688®ion=06&type=SC. The Feasibility Study is not needed as there is no risk. Other agencies involved have agreed with the EPA report. The next step is the Proposed Plan Stage which will include recommendations to the community and will probably show no further action is needed. There will be a formal community meeting in the summer of 2021. The final step, Records of Decision, should be completed by the winter of 2021. If someone is interested in the property , they can contact Stephen Tzhone at 214-665-8409 or Jason McKinney at 214-665-8132 who will put you in contact with the EPA Reuse team and their legal team. If any new information comes up in the future, this case can be re-opened.

Residents feel that the entrance to the subdivision is too narrow. Gabe will check on it with TXDOT.
A Certificate of Compatibility is now required by the city before any new construction, expansion of existing homes/buildings or change of land use can start.
Future meetings will be limited in person or via Zoom until the COVID situation changes.
Ms. Rodriguez secured enough funds through Go Fund Me to pay for the repair of the entrance signs. The work is in progress.
Election of Officers will be held at the May Meeting
The Deed Restrictions are very outdated and Gabe would like to see a committee formed of at least 3 members to review to see if anything can be done, or determine if the residents even want to do anything. Will try to set this up after the election of the board next month.
Gabe mentioned that he is concerned about the elderly who can not get out. Please let us know if you are aware of anyone needing help.
Tracy mentioned that we have 4 street lights cost $130-$140 per month. We have no money coming in and she suggested that we turn them off as nobody cares. Richard said that to turn them back on would be costly. Suggested we keep them on until the money runs out.
