The party looking to develop single family housing around Lake Nasworthy is simply known as Fleet Equipment Leasing LLC in City of San Angelo documents. The owner utilized SKG Engineering's Herb Hooker as its public face.
There are two Fleet Equipment firms in Eastland, Texas, the location of the phone number listed in Planning Commission documents. Both have Marc W. Walraven as the registered agent. Fleet Equipment Management Company Inc. lists three board members, President Joe L. Walraven, Vice President Marc W. Walraven and Secretary/Treasurer Regina K. Bosma.
Realtor Rodney Fleming has owned/managed rental property around Lake Nasworthy and stands to profit from the sale of single family homes in "The Canals at Lake Nasworthy."
The property abuts the walking loop of Gun Club Road/Hillside Drive. Councilman Fleming placed that item on City Council's agenda. For development to occur walkers and runners have to go. Fleming called for the number to be minimized by eliminating parking. This would be the second phase of reduced parking undertaken by the city to address "the problem" of local citizens exercising in an area of natural beauty.
In the late 1980's I saw runners and walkers pushed out of Dow Park in Lake Jackson for high end housing. Such changes happen in stages. Will San Angelo be a repeat? How will Gun Club Road residents react to heavy construction equipment, followed by increased traffic? Will the Canals employ an exclusive real estate agent, one who helped them get the zoning change as a City Council member? These things remain to be seen.
Correction 10-17-13: The engineering firm on this project is SKG Engineering, not KSA Engineering as I originally stated. My apology for this error.
