Dear Spring Creek Oaks Resident:
The purpose of this letter is to inform you about what is going on in the community and to solicit your feedback regarding an anticipated construction project in your neighborhood. I have been asked to contact you on behalf of Harris County Emergency Services District No. 16 (“ESD 16”), which is the local governmental agency responsible for providing fire protection and emergency response services in your area. While you may not be familiar with that entity, you are most likely familiar with the Klein Volunteer Fire Department (“KVFD”) who is contracted by ESD 16 to provide services to your neighborhood.
One of the facilities KVFD uses is located on Winding Ridge Drive (the “Station”) adjacent to the Bilma Public Utility District (“Bilma PUD”) wastewater treatment plant. Bilma PUD provides water and sewer services to your home, owns the Winding Ridge Drive property where the KVFD station is located and leases the Station property to KVFD for its use.
As you are aware, the population and development in our community is increasing and as a result of such development, ESD 16 needs to keep up with the pace of growth to provide the same high level of emergency services to the Klein community. To achieve that goal, ESD 16 has requested Bilma PUD to allow the construction of a 2,400 square foot addition to the Station. This addition would be at the rear of the property, near the flood control ditch and within the existing fenced area of the Station.
As part of the process for consideration of this expansion, the directors of Bilma PUD have requested that ESD 16 send this notice to Spring Creek Oaks residents informing them about the requested change and proposed construction. Additionally, you are being provided the opportunity to comment on ESD 16’s proposed expansion plans on the Bilma PUD’s website at http://www.bilmapud.com/ or in person at their meeting scheduled for June 7th at 5:00 p.m., at the Spring Creek Oaks Clubhouse located at 6002 Bur Oak.
In addition, please be aware that ESD 16 has acquired new property on Stuebner Airline to perform its maintenance operations, but that site will not be developed and available for use for several years. However, once the new maintenance facility is open on Stuebner Airline (anticipated to open in 2021), the existing Station would become a facility for housing reserve apparatus for use by KVFD when the need arises.
Included with this letter are conceptual plans for the Winding Ridge Drive expansion. We look forward to hearing from you.
