Email Address:    bcats@stoptruckstop.com ANNEXATION PROTEST NOT OVER! www.stoptruckstop.com Update: Jan 23,2013             Results of City Council Meeting (January 22, 2013) BCATS Bulletin:  1. Tuesday's City Council vote, the first of two, resulted in a 4-1 vote in favor of annexation. 2. The second council vote will be Feb 12. Please plan to attend to show your continued support for our petition charter.                                                        3. BCATS is retaining legal counsel to help ensure that Boerne is kept free of a truck stop.                                                       Thank you for your continued support!                                                                       BCATS Bottom line: A “No” vote on annexation is the best way to stop the truck stop. Until the annexation is denied and the proper zoning ordinance is in place, Pilot Flying J's effort is still very much alive. Boerne Citizens Against Truck Stops needs you to continue to work to insure that our city officials do not vote in favor of annexation of the property at 34 Shooting Club Rd prior to enacting an ordinance that states, “a truck stop would not be an appropriate use of this property”. 1. We do not believe Pilot is going to accept the “preliminary” zoning determination city staff has made until it is officially adopted by our council. 2. There are certain “Prior Use” rights the landowner who petitioned for annexation still has which may force the city to allow a truck stop since they showed the intended use of the property to be a truck stop to city officials 90 days prior to annexation and a form of authorization by a governmental agency was given when a plan was Okayed by TxDot.  3. We believe a Letter of Intent to purchase the proposed property stated the sale to Pilot would be contingent upon the property being annexed. 4. This property is already in the City’s ETJ and by extension industrial zoning is the existing use…the city doesn’t need to annex it to apply industrial zoning conditions. What a Pilot Flying J truck stop does need is the City’s sewer and water which they would have access to if annexed into the city. Nothing has changed since we started this fight…annexation = sewer/water = truck stop.        5.    We are concerned by the fact Pilot continues to advertise for a Retail Manager at their “Boerne location”.    Our online petition remains a critical conduit for expressing our opposition. You can help by forwarding this to your contact list and asking all to sign the petition at www.stoptruckstop.com. Thank you for your continued support--and PLEASE, PLEASE help spread the word that OUR FIGHT IS NOT OVER!     Boerne City Council Meeting Tuesday, Feb.12th at 6:00 PM Boerne Municipal Court 124 Old San Antonio Rd
