Michele Anderson started this petition to the city of bastrop

We are a community of neighbors opposed to the proposed 546-Acre Bastrop 552, LLLP/Bastrop Colorado Bend, LLC film studio/concert venue project and ask the City of Bastrop to reject it in its entirety. 

Our small community is nestled among the "Lost Pines," a unique loblolly pine-oak forest located along the Colorado River just east of Austin, Texas.  Our homes are located within and surrounding the pine forest and river, which is home to an impressive array of wildlife, plant species and dark night skies.  A great many of us chose to invest in property and make our homes in this community to escape the bright lights and ever-increasing crime rates of an Austin that is no longer recognizable to most of us natives.  

Our opposition encompasses a multitude of concerns that have not been addressed in the current proposal.  Although we received vague verbal assurances with regard a some of our noted concerns by the commissioners at the first hearing, these verbal assurances are not binding. Furthermore, the commissioners (by their own admission) were either not familiar with the project and/or had not read the proposal in its entirety.  With having performed little to no due diligence, all but one commissioner voted in favor of sending the proposal to the Council for approval.

The City of Bastrop clearly hoped we'd also remain in the dark and opted to mail a mere 57 notices to property owners living within 200' of the proposed development. Tahitian Village alone has over 7000 lots. Does sound stop traveling at 200'?  Does the 6 miles of traffic from 1000+ concert goers stop at 200'?  Does light stop traveling at 200'?  Does the environment stop being impacted at 200'?  The answer is a resounding NO.  Absolutely nothing about this development stops at 200'.  

While the City of Bastrop may be starry-eyed, we live within a wounded community still healing from the 2011 Bastrop Fires caused by an irresponsible subcontractor.  Now the City of Bastrop sees fit to green-light a Los Angeles developer's project whose filming of an outdoor explosion could spark the next Bastrop Fire?  

Let us be clear, we are not anti-progress nor anti-development.  It is our position that a development of this nature is completely inappropriate for our neighborhoods, our families and surrounding environment.

Please sign this petition in support of our community of neighbors and help us ask the City of Bastrop to reject this development in its entirety.
