Water is pretty much on every person in the Concho Valley's mind right now. Especially with the fact that we can't use it for anything in parts of the city.

About a week ago, people living within 200 feet of William B. Travis Elementary school building that there has been a zoning request change.

William B. Travis Elementary school building, is located at 2909 A&M Avenue here in San Angelo in case you were wondering.

The request is for "an additional use of a water processing and delivery business and related accessory uses".

Now the city council needs to approve this, but the planning commission wants to hear from residents first because if they do not want it, that needs to be brought into consideration.

This building has been vacant for years and it is believed it will bring many jobs to the area.

"The plant would operate from eight or nine in the morning until five in the evening. Other than that, it would be nice and quiet," Property owner Jack Gabriel said during an exclusive interview.

Now if you think this is a good or bad idea and want your voice heard on this, the next planning commission meeting will be help this coming Monday, Feb 15.

Those who wish to make a public comment or speak at the meeting must send a request by noon Feb. 14, 2021 to the email address: planning@cosatx.us.

I for one think it's a great idea, it'll bring more jobs to San Angelo in a time where we desperately need them, and the lack of noise that is expected to make, I think this is a great idea.
