The city council here soon will weigh in on ordinances related to parking and zoning regulations and it will vote on the final draft of Floresville’s first-ever land-use plan. This follows action taken Nov. 13 during a special midday meeting of the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission.

With regard to parking, the commission voted to recommend amendments to the city’s existing parking ordinance. Proposed changes include mandating two-car enclosed garages for all new homes constructed within the incorporated boundaries of Floresville. Off-street parking would be allowed only for licensed motor vehicles in operating condition.

The commission’s approval is conditional, subject to consultant Chris Stewart of Stewart Planning Consulting clarifying his definition of “construction equipment” that would not be allowed to be stored on lots except during periods of permitted construction.

Stewart’s firm is working with the city in the crafting of the land-use plan, of which the commission approved a final draft. First on the list would be to “annex those areas surrounded on three or more sides by the corporate limits, especially if those areas are existing utility customers,” and annexing northward to the junction of U.S. 181 and U.S. 181 Business because of its ongoing commercial growth.

The plan then suggests annexing the areas southwest of the city limits, toward the San Antonio River and along S.H. 97 to the Lauro G. De Leon III Floresville Event Center. This also would include the Floresville River Park.

Lastly, the city intends to annex southward where U.S. 181 meets U.S. 181 Business, eastward along F.M. 537 toward the El Rancho Grande Industrial Park, and eastward along S.H. 97.

A public hearing for the land-use plan has been set for Dec. 11.

The land-use plan will work hand in hand with the proposed revisions to the city’s zoning ordinance. Highlights include new zoning classifications, such as “assembly.” Also included are comprehensive changes to the current single-family residential -- R-1 -- classification, such as removal of schools, utility stations, and fire stations, which would be placed in “public facilities” district.

Other recommendations include differentiating mobile homes and other pre-manufactured structures, and creating a manufactured home district that would have specific requirements. These structures would need to be skirted, have the tongue and trailer assembly removed, and have main-entry doors that face the street.

Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission special meeting Nov. 13. In attendance: Commission members Philip Vipond, Teddi Harllee, Ray Lamberth, and Jim Lawhon; Project Manager for New Development Andrew Barrientes, Cyndi Nichols of the Floresville Permits and Code Compliance Office, and City Manager Henrietta Turner.
