NOTICE OF DISTRICT PETITION TCEQ Internal Control No. D-04122021-017 PETITION. Restore the Grasslands LLC, a Texas limited liability Company ("RTG"), submitted a joinder petition to the revised petition filed by Harrington/Turner Enterprises L.P, a Texas limited Partnership ("HTE"), for creation of Collin County Municipal Utility District No. 7 (District) with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). The petitions were filed pursuant to Article XVI, 59 of the Constitution of the State of Texas; Chapters 49 and 54 of the Texas Water Code; 30 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 293; and the procedural rules of the TCEQ. The petitions state that: (1) RTG is the holder of title to the Property as shown by the Collin County Tax Rolls and conveyances of Record in the proposed District; (2) there are no lienholders on the property to be included in the proposed District; (3) the proposed District will contain approximately 101.829 acres located within Collin County, Texas; and (4) all of the land within the proposed District is wholly within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Parker, Texas. The territory to be included in the proposed District is set forth in a metes and bounds description and is depicted in the vicinity map designated as Exhibit "A," which is attached to this document. The petitions further state that the general nature of the work proposed to be done by the District, as contemplated at the present time, is to: (1) construct a water supply and distribution system for domestic purposes; (2) construct a sanitary sewer conveyance and treatment system; (3) control, abate, and amend the harmful excess of waters and the reclamation and drainage of overflowed lands within the proposed District; (4) construct and finance macadamized, graveled, or paved roads and turnpikes, or improvements in aid of those roads; and (5) construct, install, maintain, purchase, and operate such other facilities, systems, plants, and enterprises as shall be consistent with the purposes for which the District is organized, all to the extent authorized by law from time to time. According to the revised petition, a preliminary investigation has been made to determine the cost of the project, and it is estimated by the Petitioners, from the information available at this time, that the cost of said project will be approximately $44,210,000 ($27,560,000 for water, wastewater, and drainage facilities and $16,650,000 for roads). In accordance with Local Government Code 42.042 and Texas Water Code 54.016, HTE submitted a petition to the City, requesting the City's consent to the creation of the District. After more than 90 days passed without receiving consent, HTE submitted a petition to the City to provide water and sewer services to the District. The 120-day period for reaching a mutually agreeable contract as established by Texas Water Code 54.016(c) expired and information provided indicates that the Petitioners and the City have not executed a mutually agreeable contract for service. Pursuant to Texas Water Code 54.016(d), failure to execute such an agreement constitutes authorization for the Petitioners to initiate proceedings to include the land with the district.
