Floresville P&Z OKs new home for barbershop

FLORESVILLE -- The 10th Street Barber Shop, located near the corner of U.S. 181 and C Street here, soon could move, following a unanimous vote May 7 by the Floresville Planning and Zoning Commission.
The barbershop’s owner, David Ybarra, rents the current location. However, that building and an adjacent one currently are for sale, leaving him looking for a new location. His father, Hector, owns a residential property at 1503 B St. -- near the corner of Seventh Street -- in Floresville, on which the two wish to locate the shop. The commission’s recommendation to change the zoning classification to “business” is subject to the final approval of the Floresville City Council.
The shop’s entrance would face Seventh Street, said Cyndi Nichols of the city’s Permits and Code Compliance Office. David Ybarra currently resides in the home, behind which he plans to construct the barbershop. The existing Sylvia’s Beauty Shop across the street has had no history of complaints from the surrounding neighbors, and none expressed opposition to the Ybarras’ proposal.
The commission members also voted to recommend to the council that Chris Stewart of Stewart Planning Consulting be selected as the city’s consultant for crafting the development agreement for the Villages of River Bend project, the city’s upcoming land-use ordinances, and amendments to Floresville’s three-year annexation plan.
City Manager Henrietta Turner, who was in the audience, said the time has come to again update Floresville’s annexation plan, which likely will focus first on expanding the city’s borders north along U.S. 181. The current city limits end at the highway’s intersection with C.R. 130 and C.R. 330 near the Walmart Supercenter and McCoy’s Building Supply properties. She said this will be the subject of an upcoming workshop, the date of which is to be announced.
Also in attendance: Commission members Philip Vipond, Teddi Harllee, Ray Lamberth, Jim Lawhon, and Chris Talamantez; Mayor Diana Garza.
