FLORESVILLE -- The Floresville McDonald’s restaurant will be demolished at its current location and rebuilt from the ground up, following a meeting of the Floresville Planning and Zoning Committee July 11, during which the committee approved the final plat for the proposed structure.
“This is just a formality at this point,” said Cyndi Nichols with the city’s permit office. “Nothing has to be rezoned for this to happen, but we do need to approve the plat so it can go before the city council.”
The committee also took action to update the status of the city certificates of need (CCN) boundaries.
“The CCNs of the city will take a couple of months to formalize,” Nichols said. “TCEQ [the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality] will be formalizing the maps to include the extra-territorial jurisdiction of the city.”
Also related to the city’s jurisdiction, the committee discussed revising the city’s RV and flood plain ordinances, which will be updated at the same time as the CCNs.
Another discussion item related to annexation by the city for its three-year plan for a recreation corridor to include the Floresville River Park and other city-related corridors. Committee members reviewed a map of the proposed property to be annexed, presented by the city. (A pdf of the map is available at wilsoncountynews.com -- see PDF download above.)
“Right now, the city attorney is working with the city engineer to determine the amount of feet between the civic center and the houses outside of the city limits,” Nichols said. “There is a certain number of feet where we can do voluntary annexation and they are currently working to figure that out. From here, we will need to submit a petition for the River Park and the 4A [corporation] will submit one as well for the Floresville Event Center to begin the annexation process.”
During the meeting, the committee also:
•Discussed revisions to the city’s fee schedule; no amounts were outlined, however.
•Tabled confirmation of utilities for a mobile home and RV park on Sutherland Springs Road.
The Planning and Zoning Committee members will attend an Alamo Area Council of Governments workshop on Aug. 16. The workshop will include the following topics: Comprehensive Plans That Work, Importance of Planning, Planning in Communities with Limited Staff, Roles and Responsibilities of a Planning Commissioner, and Tools to Implement Planning.
