a note to the homeowners at The Hills of Rivermist in San Antonio, Texas, where a 1,000 ft. long, 30 FT. HIGH, retaining wall collapsed in January:
Pulte/Centex and the City of San Antonio are working out a "fix" to the collapsed retaining wall. This is CLASSIC. The builder and the City work up a solution for the homeowners; BUT, THEY DON'T INVOLVE YOU, THE HOMEOWNERS, IN THE PROCESS.
DEMAND TO BE A PART OF THE PROCESS.
The replacement wall will not look like the collapsed wall. IT COULD BE UGLY.
Besides the fact that your property values have already been lowered by the stigma of a collapsed retaining wall, an UGLY replacement wall will further lower your property values.
SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT.
DEMAND THAT THE CITY OF SAN ANTONIO AND PULTE/CENTEX INCLUDE YOU IN THE SOLUTION.
