Saw the headline this morning too! I don’t know that it is something to brag about just yet! Particularly when they reference “shantytowns” and “RV parks” when discussing the City of Floresville.

This administration has not prepared the City of Floresville for the growth due to Eagle Ford oil boom!

According the “10 Year Master Plan”, that is not a plan but rather recommendations, the City of Floresville will see in excess of 1,300 new residents per year beginning in 2013 and continue to grow at the rate for the next 5 to 7 years.

In 5 years the population of our City could double! What are the plans for the infrastructure to support this growth (streets, water distribution, sewer lines, wastewater treatment, police officers/equipment, firemen/equipment, and zoning?

The City’s “10-Year Master Plan” is simply recommendations provided by a reputable engineering firm. The City does not have a time line for these recommendations; it has no idea what these recommendations, some of which are immediate requirements, will cost; and it does not have the funding sources identified for these recommendations.

The headline in today’s San Antonio Express news is accurate; “Floresville finds itself in perfect position”. This position can easily be lost without planning and preparation. However, our City with leadership that is focused on infrastructure and sustainable development can position itself to be stronger community on the other side of this boom.
