FLORESVILLE -- Work-shops related to the creation of the city’s first-ever comprehensive land-use plan continue. In the latest workshop June 12, members of the Floresville Planning and Zoning Committee and consultant Chris Stewart of Austin-based Stewart Planning Consulting, LLC continued to discuss options related to keeping the city’s vehicular traffic moving.

Stewart said that based on concerns raised by members of the public, creation of a bypass road aimed at preventing the bottleneck caused by the merging of local and through traffic should be considered. He said the board still should devise a way to address this issue.

In addition to the influx of vehicles traveling though the city en route to various points within the Eagle Ford shale oil and natural gas play, members of the committee also are bracing for additional traffic related to a pending increase of residents. In addition to the 250-unit Oakland Hills Apartments complex being built near the corner of Paloma Drive and U.S. 181 Business, Cyndi Nichols of the city’s Permits and Code Compliance Office said developers of The Lakes residential subdivision have indicated that they soon will begin construction. The Floresville City Council approved a master plan in 2008 for 480 homes to be built near the intersection of U.S. 181 and Katy Lane.

Nichols said now the plan includes 600 homes. Katy Lane is a private road located just south of the Floresville city limits.

With regard to the city’s current boundaries, the committee also is exploring ways to expand. The group came to a consensus that the first priority for annexation would be to expand the northern reach of the city from its current boundary at the corner of U.S. 181 and C.R. 130 to the intersection of U.S. 181 and U.S. 181 Business.

The second priority would be to expand east toward the intersection of S.H. 97 and F.M. 539.

The committee’s third priority involves expanding the city limits southward to the intersection of U.S. 181 and U.S. 181 Business near the Wilson County Seventh- Day Adventist Church (formerly Junior’s). Discussion also included the city expanding northward toward F.M. 775.

In attendance: Committee members Jim Lawhon, Ray Lamberth, Teddi Harllee, and Philip Vipond; Cyndi Nichols of the Floresville Permits and Code Enforcement Office, and Floresville Project Manager of New Development Andrew Barrientes.
