ELMENDORF -- A deal could be within reach for the city councils in Elmendorf and San Antonio related to the Dollar General site at the corner of U.S. 181 and Kilowatt Road here.

The Elmendorf City Council at its Feb. 13 meeting accepted the terms of an agreement that would transfer the property and some surrounding land from San Antonio’s extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) to Elmendorf’s ETJ. Mark Brodeur, assistant director of San Antonio’s Department of Planning and Community Development, said that when Elmendorf proposed the swap in 2011, it included just the 1.9-acre property where Dollar General is located.

But because of state provisions suggesting that adjusted boundaries should be made “as smooth and contiguous as possible,” Brodeur said a total of 7.3 acres would be part of the deal. Additional properties, he said, include a residence and some nearby cemeteries.

In exchange for the land, San Antonio will for five years receive 25 percent of sales-tax and property-tax proceeds generated by those properties. Brodeur said San Antonio’s Planning Commission, if it approves the deal following a Feb. 26 public hearing, would refer the matter to the San Antonio City Council. A final decision could come in early April.

Elmendorf City Administrator Cody Dailey said city officials welcome the prospect of additional sales-tax revenue following the recent closure of longtime business De Leon Grocery & Market on Old Corpus Christi Road. Now, he said, two restaurants generate almost all of the city’s sales tax.

The eventual plan, Dailey said, is for Dollar General to be annexed into the city. Another potential annexation, he said, is the Alamo Junction railroad park, under construction on Old Corpus Christi Road just outside the city limits. The 400-plus-acre park is set to generate an estimated 500 jobs. A manufacturing plant is set to break ground there next month.

An Alamo Junction representative was unavailable for comment as of press time Feb. 24.

The desire to expand the city’s borders is increasing, as the council during the meeting directed Dailey to meet with City Attorney Michael Guevara to draft an annexation plan. Dailey said a proposal could be ready in time for the March 13 council meeting.

Also steering Elmendorf’s future growth will be the planning and zoning committee, to which these five members were appointed:

•Michael Hyatt
•Ruby Hyatt
•Wayne Fielder
•Ronald Huerta
•Carol Huerta
