P&Z OKs preliminary plats for Executive Inn, Holiday Inn Express

FLORESVILLE -- The city is on track to add as many as 120 additional hotel rooms, after the Floresville Planning and Zoning Committee gave conditional approval to two preliminary plats during a May 16 special meeting.

The Executive Inn and Suites is being proposed for construction at 1500 10th St. (U.S. 181), which is a 1.9-acre property located between Richardson Bros. Chevrolet Polaris and the One Stop convenience store and Exxon gas station. Developer Kevin Patel said the proposed two-story, 40-unit building will be a limited-service hotel, meaning that it will not include a bar or restaurant.

Floresville’s city engineer, Larry Heimer, said that Patel must obtain verification from his engineering firm that the building’s proposed sprinkler system will meet the city’s fire code. This is because initial water flow tests at the location indicated a flow of only 600-700 gallons per minute. This was why the board gave the plat its conditional approval.

Also proposed is a Holiday Inn Express for construction at 927 10th St., which is the former site of the Cow Camp Bar-B-Q restaurant. Project manager Greg A. Senulis of San Antonio-based Moy Tarin Ramirez Engineers said the hotel will be three stories tall and have up to 80 rooms.

The board gave the Holiday Inn Express conditional approval because water flow tests and drainage studies are pending.

Tabled until a May 23 special meeting is consideration and action to approve a special-use zoning permit for 2220 10th St., which is the lot located next to the Highland Oaks Apartments near the intersection of U.S. 181 and Paloma Drive. Developers Oscar Garcia and Michael Sepeda initially proposed a 170-unit recreational-vehicle (RV) park.

Annie Angell, the owner of Angell Flooring located across U.S. 181 from the proposed site, expressed reservations about an RV park being built there, because it would mean that the city would be bookended by RV parks as visitors enter from the north and south on U.S. 181. Three RV parks -- 5L, Creekside, and Lazy J -- are located on U.S. 181 north of the proposed site.

“I just don’t see why we need another RV park within the city limits of Floresville,” Angell said.

Gerald Lucio, who owns the property just south of the proposed RV park, raised concerns about noise from workers and the possibility of pedophiles residing there.

However, Garcia and Sepeda have expressed their desire to amend the proposal to allow for a mixed-use site with commercial development in the front and a smaller RV park to the rear. This was why the board voted to table the discussion pending the advice of city attorney Louis Rosenberg.

‘I just don’t see why we need another RV park within
the city limits of Floresville.’

I don't see a need for another RV park either. I really wish the Planning and Zoning board would think of the impact. Why don't they try to make Floresville a little more classy, and less trashy. Little RV parks and cottages ... More ›
