No variance, not buildable period, as in shut down. But you can bet your ass the leeches want to tax the shlt out of that unusable vacant land.

B.s.. I have helped save people's houses. Even in a small rule volunteer fire department our response time was pretty awesome.

They're not always a total loss. I don't think you fully realize what fire departments do - I promise you lives are saved because they have their service. Most firefighters in the United States do it for free also. At least when I was in service I think 70% of firefighters were volunteers.

I don't watch Sean Hannity, Fox or any other media Source news.

Stuff is sitting on a shelf a lot longer here, I see people dropping their prices pretty regular two. Oversaturated with Specks, I'm glad I didn't build one. Build and rent. Slow but sure

They need to stick to rescuing cats and handing long (and short) hoses and leave home construction to real straight men.

Hmmm, I thought it was a direct link to the item. I just posted it to show the cost of a new one. Iíve never heard of that brand though.

So you think the fire departments should be dictating new home builds? that’s fine but don’t complain when Yankees come down there and try to get their expensive pet projects up and running too. Everybody seems to have their thing and its always paid for with OPM.

No I don't think they should be, and I don't agree with most government oversight. We shut down their dumb ads sprinkler rules ect... more than once.

But it's ridiculous to say that they do not have a place in society or a relevant position. They provide value, at least the fire department. If you guys can't control your government up there that's your problem. We fire people where I come from for overspending. Are fire departments in Police Department where I come from or not overpaid by any means, nor do they dictate anyting to our building codes. The Builder Lobby here's a hell of a lot stronger than the firefighters Union.

You stick your nose in my business expect to get a reaction, I’m not a Hannity sheep, I’m not going to roll over for anything and just because a few of you died in New York 20 years doesn’t give your industry a blank check out of my check book.

I hear that.

We're like the canary in the coal mine here, on account the state-wide economic machine isn't as deep as it was pre-2007.

There's a hole developing in the middle, pushing what's left either upmarket - or into buy/expand/upgrade.

Meanwhile, multi-family is surging, and downriver, new sh!t-shacks are breaking ground, but selling for near middle income pricing.

That's weak. Childish.

I agree with you on the regulation, but throwing out false information and spitting a bunch of childish BS about fire departments not doing any relevant work in Society just because of your little spat with them on one issue is exactly why I don't watch media news. A bunch of sheep. Start spouting off a bunch of shet that isn't true because it fits their bul**** agenda.

Society is so weak it's ridiculous

So yeah dude, because of your little problem with him there are no fire fighters who have ever done their Duty, or more than their Duty, saved lies and protected property and inspected buildings to make sure they were up to fire code excetera. What a joke.

Westlake is in the most liberal area of Texas. Give me a break bro. I don't live in Westlake. I don't give a s*** what they do in Westlake. Yuppie Ville. Why don't you check out Marble Falls, Horseshoe Bay or Burnet Texas.
