Controversy plagues Planning and Zoning meeting

FLORESVILLE -- An application to approve the rezoning of 1716 and 1718 C St. from residential to commercial, which has seen its share of controversy, died from lack of a motion during the May 1 meeting of the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission.

The accuracy of the survey accompanying the application, which was submitted by Mark Gonzales, was first called into question during the April 10 meeting of the commission by local landowner Richard “Ricky” Quintanilla.

Quintanilla purports that the proposed rezoning would include an overlay of land which has been in his family for generations.

“The survey is inaccurate,” Quintanilla said. “I have brought my representative here today and he provided proof that the information used to conduct the survey was inaccurate.”

Quintanilla referred to the fact that the appraisal office, at times, creates a classification for its systems which has no bearing on the official record at the Wilson County Courthouse.

The survey provided by Gonzales apparently relied on the information gathered by the appraisal district, which was erroneous.

Although the survey used was inaccurate, the lots proposed for rezoning would not be affected by where the property lines ended, as both were within the property owned by Gonzales.

When Planning and Zoning President Philip Vipond called for a motion, none was offered; the application died for lack of a motion. Despite this, the matter will now go to the Floresville City Council for consideration.

In addition to this matter, a public hearing was held before the meeting for another application requesting to change a zone from R-1 residential to business.

Leela De La Rosa sought to open a late-hour hair salon behind her mother’s house on E Street to focus on acquiring business from working people.

“Many people are working during the hours when most hair places are open,” De La Rosa said after the meeting. “I wanted to stay open until 11 p.m., something that no one else is willing to do, to serve people who work all day.”

Although her idea elicited some support during the meeting, some of De La Rosa’s neighbors did not share this enthusiasm.

A petition signed by five landowners in the immediate area was presented in opposition to De La Rosa’s application.

Citing the city’s zoning ordinance, Cyndi Nichols with the permits office announced that if more than 20 percent of the property owners within 200 feet of the proposed zoning amendment oppose the change, the rezoning shall not become effective unless approved by two-thirds of the Floresville City Council.

The application will be presented to the council during its next scheduled meeting.

A workshop for the Planning and Zoning Commission earlier that day to discuss the city’s land-use plan was canceled, due to the absence of the presenter. This will be rescheduled.

In attendance: Cyndi Nichols with the Permits Office; and commissioners Philip Vipond, Ray Lamberth, Chris Talamantez, and Jim Lawhon.

We do not need a man camp in this area. Mr Gonzales is not forthcoming with what he wants to do. First he says office space, then he says he wants to keep his options open! What does he mean by that? And why is Mr. Morons so ... More ›
