FLORESVILLE -- The city of Floresville soon will have the land-use plan it desperately needs as the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission is set to present a professional planning services agreement to the city council for approval. Establishing the land-use plan could assist the commission in lifting a moratorium for all special use permits. The moratorium has put plans for several developments, such as mobile-home parks, on hold.

During its Jan. 9 meeting, the Planning and Zoning Commission approved an agreement for presentation to the council at the Jan. 24 meeting.

The agreement, which will bring the services of Stewart Planning and Consulting (SPC) to Floresville, calls for a future land-use map to be drawn and incorporated into the city’s current master plan.

The agreement obliges SPC to develop a future land-use plan that consists of two components, a map and a set of written goals, policies, and actions.

After drafting, the map will be presented to the city council at a public hearing for consideration, direction, and action.

In addition to the future land-use plan, SPC plans to provide recommendations for changes to zoning regulations and to review the current annexation plan.

Planning and Zoning Secretary Jim Lawhon said he feels the commission is comfortable with the agreement.

“At this point, it seems the members in attendance last night seem happy with the wording of the agreement,” Lawhon said. “[Philip] Vipond is going to present it to the council and we will see where it goes from there.”

In the agreement, SPC outlines its fees as a total of $14, 030, including:

•$11,750, future use plan

•$1,680, zoning ordinance assistance

•$600, review the annexation plan.

The commission also appointed Philip Vipond and Jim Lawhon as chairman and secretary, respectively.

Lawhon said he believes the new Planning and Zoning Commission members will work well together in the future.

“I really think the new group is a good group of folks who are qualified to do what they need to do,” Lawhon said. “Vipond has the qualifications and desire to get it done and the group is generally interested in looking into the land-use plan, not only to avoid conflicts, but to provide a solid plan for the city moving forward.”

***In attendance: Commission members Teddi Harllee, Jim Lawhon, Ray Lamberth, and Chris Talamantez.
