According to a site inspection report completed on October 23, 2012 by David Williams, the LCRA found that the City of Llano Roping Arena and Soccer Fields project was “not in compliance with the development permit associated with the site.”
The original permit was approved in June 2011, based on the site layout and water quality plans prepared by Hejl, Lee & Associates, which included four buildings, soccer fields, parking, and access improvements.
According to a letter to the Llano EDC from Adam Boatright with LCRA, the plan changed in October 2011, and it was decided to combine the square footages of the four buildings into one larger building.
LCRA agreed to the change, as long as the total square footage was unchanged. The letter states that a layout drawing of the new building has yet to be received by LCRA.
According to the findings, LCRA was unaware of the construction of a parking area with RV hookups to the south of the arena, and is requesting a revised site plan so that the project can be brought back into compliance.
Boatright states that the revised site plan needs to address the following: “building footprint, parking/access layout, RV Park, drainage improvements, changes to the limits of construction, revised impervious cover, and any effect these items may have on the approved water quality plan.”
The City of Llano has 45 days from the date of the letter (November 5) to submit the revisions.
Interim City Manager Lynda Kuder said that after talking to the LCRA, the City doesn’t anticipate any changes will be necessary after the revisions are submitted, and said that the City was not expecting any fines.
The City of Llano assumed responsiblity for the facility on October 15.
