Providing an outlet for OCD since 2004
Texas is pretty much unique for this sort of thing--Texas law has made it almost impossible to prevent the siting of dangerous commercial or industrial operations almost anywhere. In Pasadena, for example, there are oil refineries butted up against residential districts. State law makes almost no distinction between residential, agricultural, commercial or industrial property for zoning purposes.
Montag is exactly right. Zoning doesn't really exist in Texas. HOAs and deed restrictions take its place in a limited fashion. At least they have FREEDOM!!!Also, it sounds like the West fire dept. didn't pay attention to the lessons of the Texas City explosion of 1947.
"Also, it sounds like the West fire dept. didn't pay attention to the lessons of the Texas City explosion of 1947."The second ammonium nitrate explosion in Texas City occurred on April 17th, so, in a way, this is an unintended anniversary reenactment.As for not paying attention, apparently the West FD didn't pay attention to the fire at the plant in February of this year, either.
Sounds WACO to me!
Dr. Turk, why do you hate America?Texas, baby. Free. Markets. Boo-Yaa!
If it's Texas, I'd expect a Fireworks stand somewhere within the blast zone...and maybe a gun store, too.
low taxes has its benefits.
but, but, but ZONING is all part of United Nations Agenda 21...they want to enslave us, take away our property rights, rule us under one-world government, make us use curly light bulbs and eat broccoli...(sarcasm off)
I think Forrest Gump put it best...
should be interesting to count the ammount of federal aid flowing in to fight this fire and to rebuild the town. what with them wanting to succeed and all...this bein mavericky thing they do with laws and regulations sure is a on and off kinda thing.maybe they should have gone to the school they just blew to hell. sounds like the school officials have had to enact emergency plans before because of this place during the school days...feralcrj
Yey for Texas, don't mess with us, we're too busy fucking ourselves over.
along the same lines, apparently the plant hasn't been expected by OSHA since 1985.
