If they're going to build it you can bet that it's legal.

You may want to contact the affected subdivision HOAs (if they have one).

Itīs Westbury Place and Adams Hill - Marbach and Hunt Lane.

Itīs only a small Greenbelt between the 2 Subdivisions ... and that would mean, that you never can sell your house again !!!! Can this be true ???? I canīt believe it !!!!!!

Isn't there already a small substation on the East side of Hunt Lane (just South of Marbach)?

Can't expect to get relief from the city for something like this, since CPS Energy is owned by the city. You may need to pay for an attorney to get a better idea of your options.

Thanks for your information .... after having a meeting yesterday we know now, that cps started the planning for that substation 2 years ago. Most of the houses on Westbury Place are built only 1,5 years ago.

The Homebuilder was Kimball Hill and cps told us, that they had never informed Kimball Hill about this project. Also cps told us because itīs their land they can built whatever they want without any permissions.

Maybe we should take an attorney but in this case we have the costs first.

Does anybody have other suggestions ???

Thanks again!

you can get your info together, do your research, and bring it to this firm out on datapoint. they may or may not take the issue, depends on how many are involved and what the complications might be. if it is just that you are worried about the eyesore...you may lose out altogether.

Default CPS Substation

Usually CPS builds these things to give us better reliability. It is my understanding that the substation across from Adams Hill and Westbury floods when it rains and knocks out the power. I used to live in Rainbow Hills. Is there a better place to put the substation, but give us reliable power?
