Meeting MONDAY, January 14th to learn what we need to do to PROTEST the building of the
proposed marina near Barrington subdivision on Woodland Hills Drive- MONDAY,
6-8pm at the Kingwood Community Center,
4102 Rustic Woods Drive. It’s the building by HEB and Kingwood Park and Ride. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

Why? Please explain your pertinent objections. 

Let Logic Prevail --- 2 years ago -

I will be there.



Why? Please explain your pertinent objections. 

You must be kidding or just a troll. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

One word- Flooding. 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

You must be kidding or just a troll. 

No, I'm not kidding. Have you seen the survey report? 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

OH, and please call me a troll when you are unable to discuss a rational point of view.
I'm asking about pertinent information. Is that beyond you LLP? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

I was at the meeting. These developers are nuts. These guys are billionaires and think building a huge retail monstrosity in the middle of a tiny residential community is a good idea?

There are so many reasons why it's a bad idea, hard to know where to start. The area there off the SanJac now floods after small normal rainfalls since Harvey dumped it's silt everywhere. The Barrington subdivision off Woodland Hills will be surrounded
by a hotel, shopping center, restaurants and parking for 8,000 cars! How about the traffic in this area? You think it's bad now....Can you imagine living there's now? Thinking you bought in a nice quiet area?? Or trying to sell your house if this got approved? The
damage to Wet lands, animal and bird life will be awful. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

Not to mention, FLOODING. 

The Awe Inspiring JoelleDrees (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

It'll be literally next door to me. I don't want to look out my windows and see giant buildings instead of birds... 

sdanielmcev --- 2 years ago -

So, NIMBY 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Joelle, the woman running the meeting must be very close to you bc she said the same thing...

The whole point of The Livable Forest, IS the forest aspect. I don't think anyone supports this who actually lives here. We, as residents must protest! 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

Please send protest letters to these folks. Keep it short and to the point. Jan 29th is the deadline!
NOW is the time to say something!
Don't forget the file # if sending to the Corps. They won't know what your talking about without that!

And this is why Kingwood will never have nice things LOL 

KwMillennial --- 2 years ago -

So, NIMBY 

Apparently so.

But my view! What about the birds? But what about what I want you to do with your property!

But what about everyone that already chose to build or buy in a floodplain?

Rather than speaking like obstructionists, why not ask what they are doing to address all valid concerns:

Developers, what is planned to offset the water displacement that will occur? Are you planning to remove equal amounts of soil from other areas of your property to offset the impact to flooding?

Developers, what is planned for local roadways to address the increase in traffic? Will you help the city fund new and improved infrastructure to roadways in advance of your development?

Developers, what about the birds? Will you devote a portion of this property as a wildlife sanctuary like the area next to Kingwood High?

Instead people draw a line in the sand (like Trump, Schumer, and Pelosi) and expect billionaire developers to do with their property what they want biliionares to do with their investment dollars.

It all sounds selfish and entitled. I’m not a property owner, so I have to ask - does anyone buy property and expect that their view will not change as long as they own their property? I plan to buy one day and I’m pretty sure if I buy near water, I should expect undeveloped land on the water to be of interest to future developers. 

KwMillennial --- 2 years ago -

And this is why Kingwood will never have nice things LOL 

I know, right? This seems like a beautiful development that will improve property values to surrounding areas if their concerns are addressed.

What are the odds that billionaire developers and billionaire investors will plan to lose money? Are we supposed to believe they were smart enough to earn money on everything else that earned them money developing property in the past, but just not in this one? This one they forgot to google Kingwood flooding.

Think of the possible increase in tax revenues to our school system.

Do these developers have a history of scamming people? Do they have a history of bait and switch? 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

For those truly interested, just a reminder, this development is almost 3 times the size of Deerbrook Mall.

Can you even imagine having something like that come in behind your home!? 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 2 years ago -

I first moved to The Woodlands before the mall or town center was there. The Woodlands wasnt a badly congested area in those days.

The Mall was built and crime increased. Town Center was built and more crime and unbelieveable traffic. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

I guess it's a trade off, as far as the Woodlands. They have fab shopping and restaurants, but the traffic is awful. Imagine a center here, 3 times the size of Deerbrook, and high rise buildings? Not just no but hell, no! 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 2 years ago -

And Woodland Hills is a tiny little two lane street. That would all be torn out and 4 lane road put in there...

Why not build this is Galveston or somewhere?? I mean who is going to rent a boat storage in a marina on the San Jac?? People around here have small watercraft, canoes and stuff they put in their
garage. Lol 

Prolix Raconteur --- 2 years ago -

Trying to "out Woodlands" the Woodlands. It's nice there but the traffic is atrocious.

I still can't fathom the disconnect with these developers and their perception of what Lake Houston/San Jac river offer in the terms of boating and the boating lifestyle etc. It's a shallow backwater hardly fit for anything larger than a jon boat. If they really build that massive marina, it will sit mostly empty. That portion of the river between there and lake Houston can't handle more than a half dozen ski boats at a time. And skiing in the open waters of Lake Houston is putting your life in peril with all the water hazards.

A project of this scope is more in sync with Clear Lake or Galveston Bay. The dirt would cost WAY more, however. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 2 years ago -

Prolix, I couldn't agree more- even stores like Whole Foods think we're not in their demographic- what are these people thinking? It's almost like the want this as a write off- 

Miss Understanding --- 2 years ago -

I was at the meeting. These developers are nuts. These guys are billionaires and think building a huge retail monstrosity in the middle of a tiny residential community is a good idea?



I was there at the meeting you should've told me you were going we could do a meetup!!!Did you see me I was talking to Mister Rehac after teh meeting!!

Of course they are billionsaires! Well they do not have to be personilly but they have investors you know.

Why are they building here?? BECAUSE it sill sustain it just like why they have it all ta the Woodlands. AHave you not been there? They have very very very tall buildings there and a waterway. Duh! Now 59/69 (luv that # oooooo!) is a kin to 45I. This east freeway has made this side of town booming.


or those truly interested, just a reminder, this development is almost 3 times the size of Deerbrook Mall.

THAT IS JUST THE RETAIL SPACE PART OF IT I THOUGHT. I am excited about this shopping spree that I can do now that will be grand but lets face it the riff raff will really flow into Kingwood know and our bubble will be burst destroyed!


And Woodland Hills is a tiny little two lane street. That would all be torn out and 4 lane road put in there...
is not being specific enuff here it is from Kingwood drive down to the river where it is two going to four lands. THe rest of the road is already 4 lanes Now we can really use an entry down Hamblen for this monstrosity so maybe the city will put htat back on the drawing board.

over all and all, I am having excitement for this change.More activities for us the boating, movies, retale, hotels, more tax base! Tis is just so capitalistic republican you all should be thrilled! pump it all y'all!

rolix, I couldn't agree more- even stores like Whole Foods think we're not in their demographic- what are these people thinking? It's almost like the want this as a write off-
