High-Rise Developer Sets Public Meeting … After Close of Public Comment

Mark your calendars. Monday, March 18th, 6:30 to 8:30 P.M. at the Kingwood Community Center.

The invitation reads, “Kingwood residents and interested parties are cordially invited to come and learn about The Herons development. This will be a great opportunity to meet the developer and his team. The main discussion topics will be: 

  • USACE Corp Process 
  • Phases of the Development 
  • Current and Future Initiatives of Romerica”


R. Thomas Sankey, PWS, CSE Senior Project Manager / Senior Ecologist, SWCA 

Melvin G. Spinks, P.E., CFM, President, Civil Tech Engineering, Inc.

Gabriel Haddad, Developer, Romerica

“Free” Meeting

Aside from saying that the meeting is “free” and open to the public, they don’t say much more. For instance, it’s not clear whether the panel members will take questions from the audience.

The public comment period for this closed on March 1. But I did think it was sporting of them not to charge admission.

Personally, I kind of wish they were addressing the issue of evacuation.

No New Info Yet from Corps

The Corps has not yet responded to questions about whether they will hold a public hearing related to this project, whether a Corps represetative will be there, or when the Corps intends to rule on the permit. This is NOT a Corps meeting.
