FLORESVILLE -- The development roadmap for the next three decades here is taking shape as the Floresville City Council Feb. 27 approved the city’s first-ever land-use plan.
The plan, which sets various goals and priorities related to Floresville’s retail, commercial, and residential development, is the culmination of nearly a year’s worth of meetings for the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission and Chris Stewart of Austin-based Stewart Planning Consulting, LLC. The next step for the commission is to amend the city’s zoning ordinance.
Also related to development, the council approved a letter of intent to authorize City Manager Henrietta Turner to negotiate a development agreement with The Parks subdivision project. (See “P&Z Commission supports The Parks,” Feb. 26.)
Various infrastructure improvements will be needed for the city to achieve its development goals, which is why the council voted to authorize Bury Inc. to prepare a preliminary engineering report related to the city’s application for a grant/loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The funds, which would be repaid over a 40-year span with revenue from water and sewer fees, would pay for water- and sewer-related improvements.
In other business, the council voted to approve a recommendation by the Floresville 4A Corp. to increase the board’s size to seven members. After approving the change, Paige Pullin and Traci Jaskinia were appointed to the board.
Also in attendance: Mayor Diana Garza and councilmen Mario Morones, Johnny Ray Nieto, and John W. Guerrero; City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, Municipal Judge Sheila Garza-Medina, Interim City Secretary Monica Cordova, City Comptroller Lara Feagins, Project Manager Andrew Barrientes, Streets Supervisor Juan Perez, Cyndi Nichols of the city’s Permits and Code Compliance office, and Bailiff Albert Litterio.
