As the battle continues to prevent Covert from building one or two car dealerships in the Bee Cave ETJ near Falconhead West, the silence from the Covert side of the debate is deafening. As the map (courtesy of the one of the anti Covert groups) shows a large number of existing homeowners on Pyrenees Pass are directly affected.
The City of Bee Cave is also at or just beyond the point of having a 5,000+ population which would enable it to become a "home rule" city and pass its own laws - including the ones it would need to annex surrounding ETJs. That move would be crucial to enable the City to stop, instead of just slow, the arrival of the Covert car dealerships on 71 west of the City. But such a process would take almost 2 years to complete.
