KAUFMAN–After their regular meeting Wedne sday, Kaufman County Commissioners held a public workshop meeting to allow citizens to voice their concerns about the Tinnin Farms Subdivision in Kaufman County Pct. 4. The property, purchased by Sheffield Properties, is slightly less than 60 acres and borders County Roads 4017 and 4027 according to Pct. 4 Commissioner Jakie Allen who said he has met with the surrounding property owners in his office several times.

Chief among the concerns of the local property owners, is flooding and what will happen to their property as a result of the development. Kaufman County Floodplain Manager Geoffrey Barahona said, “the property is not in FEMA records as being in a floodplain, which looks back 100 years, nor close enough to floodplain to be concerning.” When Judge Wood inquired if FEMA could review the area, he was told by the county’s reviewing consulting engineer “that is not an easy or cheap process.”
