The Bridgewater Ranch residential subdivision will not have to abide by the county’s 1-foot non-access easement requirement, following action taken by the Wilson County Commissioners Court at its Sept. 10 meeting.

The commissioners made the decision after developer Paul Cleveland asked the county either to grant the variance or to allow the project to proceed without a performance bond being executed for roads construction. County Attorney Russell Wilson recommended that the performance bond requirement remain, so that if the developer defaults on his obligation, the county could work to make sure the roads are completed.

Bridgewater Ranch, for which the Wilson County Development Review Committee gave preliminary plat approval July 12, is a gated, 29-lot residential subdivision currently under construction off F.M. 775 near La Vernia.

Also during the meeting, the commissioners held a public hearing related to a takings impact assessment for revisions to the county’s flood control rules. No one spoke during the hearing and the amended rules are set to be adopted at the commissioners’ Sept. 17 meeting.

The commissioners also took the following action related to applying for a community development block grant to bring public water to a group of homes located on C.R. 106 between F.M. 2505 and C.R. 104; on C.R. 141; and on F.M. 2505 between C.R. 111 and C.R. 103 (see related article, page 9A):

•Approved a resolution authorizing submission of the application to the Texas Department of Rural Affairs.

•Approved a resolution authorizing County Judge Marvin Quinney to enter into an interlocal agreement with the Picosa Water Supply Corp. for completion of the project. The commissioners also approved the actual agreement.

Early voting

In other business, the commissioners approved the schedule for early voting, Oct. 22 to Nov. 2, ahead of the Nov. 6 general election and the special election for the proposed Emergency Services District No. 3.

Both the Wilson County Courthouse Annex III and La Vernia City Hall will be open weekdays 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with extended hours Thursday, Nov. 1, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. On Saturday, Oct. 27, those locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Voters also can cast ballots in Poth City Hall on Oct. 25, or in Stockdale City Hall Oct. 26, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information on early voting, call the Wilson County Elections Office at 830-393-7368.

What is the 1 Foot Non-access Easement definition and why is this advantageous to Bridgewater Ranch Subdivision developer Paul Cleveland? Thank you
