One of the benefits to actually living within the city limits is the presence of zoning overlays. The fact that the property lies outside the city limits means that almost anything could be built there - a 24hr truck stop, a carnival, etc. The point (in the online petition) that the apartment will overlook the back yards of some residents is irrevelant. The residents may prevent the affordable nature of the project, but if the developer really wants to build an apartment complex, I can't see how he could be forced to abandon the project. In other words, low income doesn't equal higher population density... higher residential unit density = higher population density.

The address for the Eagle's Rest apartments in 8401 FM 1560. This is located right behind my house, I live in the Silver Oaks subdivision. We met with the developer last night. All in all, it sounds like the developer (NRP Group) will do a good job of maintaining the buildings, screening residents and keeping the property properly managed (they develop, construct and manager their properties). So after that meeting I am ok as I can be about this project. They have even offered to let us have our HOA meetings in their amenity center.

Did you get it all in writing? Developer will promise anything and everything to clear your opposition out of the way. They aren't altruists. They are business people.

NRP is actually an alright group to be working with. Just looking at their website they have a variety of properties in different parts of the city, from southwest to northeast and a few downtown. Some are low income, while Cevallos Lofts and Big Tex near Blue Star are also NRP properties. Not to say they won't back out on promises, but they don't have a horrid reputation, outside of people moving from property to property as many property management companies have (so maybe communication wouldn't be the best.) Here is the map for properties: The NRP Group Communities

I didn't say NRP were bad people, but rather they were business people. Like me, there motives are rooted in making money (which is a good thing in my book), but as that is what motivates them, any promises made should be in writing. If they don't agree to do that, then their promises are empty ones. Things in writing tend to be remembered while spoken agreements get lost in the breeze.

How many people want to live in luxury penthouses? I'm extremely afraid of heights so it wouldn't work out well for me. Some idiot child in NY whose family had a pool was trying to rub my nose in it one day with, "Don't you wish YOU had a pool?" And I was like, "No, I can't even swim." What am I going to do with a pool if I can't even swim? Pay for its upkeep and just stick my feet in it now and then? So impractical. (Not everyone's jealous of what you have.)
