Continued Growth? Valid Point.

Is the City of Floresville prepared for growth? Here are some facts:

The engineering study provided by M&S Engineering made several recommednations to the City of Floresville to support growth. This document is on the City's web page and entitled "10-Year Master Plan". It does not include some needed information (specifically costs, timelines, and funding sources).

Page 11: Population Projection Results. Beginning in 2013, M&S Engineering project 1,337 new residents per year in the City of Floresville.

Page 45: "Some master plans reveal a competing list of projects each with approximately equal priority which are difficult to set an order of recommendations to. This is not the case with the City of Floresville as on project has emerged above the rest in the course of this evaluation completed by M&S Engineering. The top priority for Floresville must be beginning the process of upgrading the wastewater treatment plant before potential violation begin to occur."

Page 45: HIGH PRIORITY Develop a Zoning Plan. "The current Floresville zoning regulations are both confusing and incomplete."

Page 46: HIGH PRIORITY Develop a water model of the Floresville water system." While the water system as a whole is prepared for increased population it is impossible to determine if water pressures will hold and walter quality remain(s) consistent as new piping is added."

Page 46: HIGH PRIORITY Upgrade Waste Water Treatment Plant. "This cannot be emphasized enough. Although there are no current violations, the potential for continued rapid grown made up of projects which have already been presented to the City in one for or another will quickly push the cit over the previously described benchmarks handed by TCEQ. Accordingly, the city must move quickly and decisively to begin the process of expanding the plant."

Page 46/47: HIGH PRIORITY Replace the Pecan Street sewer line. "This line has been seriously compromised by tree roots which have permanently and irrevocably damaged a section of the line.

How much are all of these projects going to cost? How will they be funded? The answer is that we do not know. As a candidate for City Council Place #1 I have stated that I will submit a resolution to freeze all city spending on everything but essential city services until such time as the answers to these questions can be obtained.

A Comprehensive 10 Year Master plan that includes requirements, costs, timelines, funding sources and priorities is needed to PLAN for the growth of our City.

A Comprehensive 5 Year Plan for all City Departments that includes requirements, costs, timelines, funding sources and priorities is needed to PLAN for the growth of our City.

When the City of Floresville has it's house in order (Specifically those things that it is responsible for water, streets, sewer, and public safety) we can begin to expand to the non essential City Services.

NOTE: Page 47 of the M&S Engineering evaluation report:

"LOW PRIORITY
The remaining recommendations, all of which are lower priority are summarized in accordance with the infrastructure category in which they fall.
2. Parks
Park facilities should be built behind the community center to fully utilize the site. Bathroom facilities at Pecan Park should be upgraded.....A pecan tree revitalization plan should be put in place at Pecan Park to ensure the trees continue to be there for generations.....Finally opportunities to develop small parks in underserved areas should be sough as land and funding becomes available."
