FLORESVILLE -- Citizens have weighed in on issues they’d like to see the city address in its proposed master plan.
Approximately 40 Floresville residents attended a public forum Feb. 25, hosted by the city of Floresville and Spring Branch-based M&S Engineering, to invite public input on the master plan the engineers are helping the city to craft.
Mayor Daniel Tejada and Heath Woods of M&S Engineering welcomed those in attendance. Woods outlined the process his firm and the city have undertaken thus far, and invited the participants to mark city maps with areas of concern.
The proposed master plan will allow the city to address current needs and plan for the future, the mayor said.
Specific areas addressed included zoning, parks and recreation, streets and drainage, and water and wastewater issues. City staff, including City Manager Andy Joslin, Constituent Liaison Officer Sherry Pollok, City Secretary Margaret de Hoyos, and others were on hand to answer questions. Also present was Floresville Economic Development Corp. Executive Director Jesse Perez.
M&S Engineering plans to present its preliminary plan to the Floresville City Council during its March 22 meeting.
Citizens unable to attend the forum also can add their concerns by contacting the mayor at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling City Hall at 830-393-3105.

Having been around road construction I know that new roads can cost over a million dollars a mile, has FEDC or the city got the money set aside to pave the industrial park now that lots have been sold? Being that oil companies have already purchased land shouldn't bids be for road construction be on the agenda I'm wondering how long these oil companies will wait before they take legal action against the city for not developing the industrial park they bought land in? I am very concerned that there are no funds for this and that I have seen no mention of this subject being brought up? Please if you have any knowledge of anything I would like to know regards to road and utility bids, construction start dates, etc etc...
