FLORESVILLE -- What will Floresville look like two decades from now? This is one of the questions that members of the Floresville Planning and Zoning Committee are endeavoring to answer as they work with consultants to create the city’s first-ever land-use plan. The committee held its first workshop with representatives of Austin-based Stewart Planning Consulting, LLC prior to its April 10 meeting.

Chris Stewart steered the discussion with a presentation that dominated much of the workshop, in which he tasked the committee with developing an overall vision for the community that will help guide its physical development and growth. The plans are to hold at least four more workshops, with the next tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, May 1.

Following the workshop, the committee met for its regular meeting, most of which involved a public hearing related to the requested rezoning of 1716-18 C St. Mark Gonzales, who owns the properties along with his wife, wants the property to be reclassified from single-family residential, or “R-1,” to Commercial, or “C.”

Those who rose to speak during the hearing expressed various concerns, including a perceived ambiguity in the boundaries of the two adjoining parcels. Since a neighboring landowner has hired an attorney to aid them in the process, the committee voted unanimously to table the discussion.

“It’s not the P and Z’s job to solve boundary disputes,” said Committee President Philip Vipond. “If boundary disputes are involved and legal representation is involved, then we should table this until the disputes are solved to everyone’s satisfaction.”

In other business, the committee met with Bob Price with regard to the new Richardson Bros. Chevrolet Polaris dealership being built north of the current city limits. Price said his company wishes for the 36-acre site to be annexed into the city. However, Cyndi Nichols of the city’s permits and code compliance office said that the parcel of land is not contiguous to the city limits, with parcels belonging to six different landowners located between the site and the boundary. She said the city cannot take further action in this regard until Price’s company meets with the landowners and they unanimously agree to be voluntarily annexed.

The new dealership will not receive city water and sewer services because it is located within the service area of the Oak Hills Water Supply Corp. Since there are no sewer lines, the company will have to install its own septic system.

In attendance: Committee members Philip Vipond, Jim Lawhon, Teddi Harllee, and Ray Lamberth; Floresville City Manager Andy Joslin, and Cyndi Nichols of the Floresville Permits and Code Compliance Office.
