FLORESVILLE -- New life continues to breathe through the former Avalon residential subdivision, now known as “River Bend.” The golf course and Lew’s Patio & Grill continue to draw visitors.

Now, Austin-based Avalon Park Group has devised a plan to develop the approximately 400 acres that are relatively untouched, outlined at an April 30 special joint workshop of the Floresville City Council and the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission. The company’s founder and chief executive officer, Richard Kunz, unveiled the proposal for a multi-phase plan including a mix of housing, commercial, and retail for the remaining 746 lots. The project is being called “The Villages at River Bend.”

The phases include areas with varying housing types including single-family detached homes, townhouses, duplexes, and “fourplexes,” in addition to office space and retail stores.

Kunz also is proposing a development agreement -- a first for any developer doing business with the city -- calling for a Planned Development District. The document promises that development would proceed in an orderly manner “in order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the city’s present and future citizens.”

Avalon Park currently is developing the 1835 Villages in Gonzales, a 500-unit residential and commercial subdivision. The firm also has completed residential developments in Austin and in the Florida cities of Orlando and Tampa.

Also in attendance: Floresville City Manager Henrietta Turner, Mayor Diana Garza and Councilman Eric Rodriguez; Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission members Philip Vipond, Teddi Harllee, and Ray Lamberth; City Attorney Louis T. Rosenberg, and Cyndi Nichols of the Floresville Permits and Code Compliance Office.

Tabasco, the item was on the agenda as a presentation. If the council would have taken a vote, it would have violated the Texas Open Meetings Act.

Looking at the video from the meeting last week, it doesn't even look like the city even voted on the proposal.

Zero lot lines, apartments disguised as houses along with a HOA will certainly entice buyers. There is a genetic need for nannies to seek a position on HOA boards. Good luck. If you enjoy contemplating your neighbor's ... More ›
