Council approves zoning changes
Mayor Robert Gregory presents three members of the Daughters of the American Revolution with a proclamation declaring Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week during a regular La Vernia City Council meeting Sept. 12.
LA VERNIA -- The city of La Vernia has grown immensely over the last five years and the city council is taking measures to continue the city’s growth and beautification.
To this end, members of the city council Sept. 12 approved two changes to the city’s zoning code during the regular meeting.
The first ordinance change that received approval was for the property of Dana Hyde, 130 Bluebonnet Road, to be changed from a general residence district (R-2) to a retail district (C-1). She applied for rezoning last year, but the application was unsuccessful.
She plans to convert the existing residence into a business. Hyde said she is happy with the council’s decision.
Approval also was granted for Sherry Logan’s property, 12366 U.S. 87 W., to change from a commercial district (C-2) to a retail district (C-1), which also includes family-style homes.
In other business, the council tabled amending the city’s zoning regulations, pending further information.Council members also did not take any action regarding changing the right-of-way construction ordinance to include oil and gas exploration, nor did they act on the city’s well projects, although all were on the evening’s agenda.
All three matters will be discussed during a workshop following a special meeting Sept. 26, according to Code Enforcement Officer Janet Thelen.
The council also approved and presented a proclamation declaring Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week. Mayor Robert Gregory presented three members of the Daughters of the American Revolution with a signed proclamation.
In attendance: Mayor Robert Gregory; councilmen Marie Gerlich, Randy Leonard, John Richter, Eloi Cormier, and Jennifer Moczygemba; City Attorney Jameene Banks; City Secretary Angela Cantu; Code Enforcement Officer Janet Thelen; and Police Chief Bruce Ritchey.
