FLORESVILLE -- The Arcadia Theatre here soon will put on a fresh face, thanks in part to a grant from the Floresville Economic Development Corp. (FEDC). At its Jan. 13 meeting, the board voted unanimously to a dollar-for-dollar match not to exceed $7,500, which will aid the downtown movie house in the completion of an upcoming renovation project.

FEDC Executive Director Tommy Baker said after the meeting that the theater will paint and repair the building’s façade facing Third Street and renovations should make for a roomier front entry. The Arcadia also will install a new, backlit marquee that will provide moviegoers with more information about films being shown.

Baker said the grant is part of a larger, ongoing FEDC initiative to aid Floresville businesses with similar projects.

“The board wants to do $30,000 worth of grants this fiscal year,” he said. “We want to do this citywide, not just in the downtown area.”

Interested firms will be required to submit detailed proposals and make presentations to the seven-member FEDC board.

Also during the meeting, the board heard a presentation from representatives of Atascosa Health Center. The group currently operates a medical and dental office next to the Tractor Supply store on U.S. 181 in Floresville. Baker said the group wants to construct a new, larger facility in the Veterans Business Park.

Baker said the group wishes to build an approximately 9,400-square-foot structure on 1-1/2 acres. The land is part of a 4.3-acre parcel on Veterans Drive, located between the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home and Studio C.

The board voted to enter into a contract to sell the property for $100,000 “as is,” Baker said, pending completion of a 60-day feasibility period, after which the transaction would close 30 days later. The FEDC board also would have to approve the design of the building’s exterior façade, which would be constructed primarily of brick or masonry consistent to other surrounding structures.

“We want to develop the area as a professional, business park,” Baker said.

In other business, the board welcomed three new members:

•Former Floresville Mayor Raymond “Ram” Ramirez, who previously served on the board.

•David Johns, a former city councilman who owns Johns Automotive on Third Street.

•Roland Castro, a former FEDC board member, who owns Castro’s bar on C Street.

The board also voted to retain its current slate of officers. Andy Eubanks will remain the board’s president and Ray Lamberth will continue to serve as vice president. Mary Helen Tieken and Jason Talley will serve another term, respectively, as secretary and treasurer.
