Car Dealership Relocation, Proposed Bridge Complex for New Braunfels City Council | Community alert


New Braunfels City Council members are expected to consider the first reading of a rezoning application to build an auto dealership on the southbound I-35 access road near Oak Creek Way on the east side of town, when they meet on Monday evening.

If passed by council members after two readings, the proposed Neighborhood Commercial District rezoning with a special use permit would allow for the relocation of an existing Hyundai dealership and the potential development and construction of a future automotive sales and service project at 4165 and 4261 IH 35 North.

Potential resort plan under discussion

Council members are also expected to consider the first reading of an application for a rezoning and special use permit allowing the development of a resort property on Sleepy Hollow Lane east of Gruene Road.

Approval after two readings of the measure would allow development of the property with cabins, cabins, condos, RVs and support structures, including but not limited to a bathhouse, building maintenance and amenities.

Approximately 80% of the nearly 20-acre area is within the Guadalupe River Floodway and 1% annual floodplain.

Pet Ordinance Discussion

Also on the agenda is a presentation from Bryan Ruiz, the city’s Director of Neighborhood Services, on a proposed pet retail ordinance with possible guidance from council members on the way to proceed. The agenda does not mention the measure as an action point.

Also at Monday’s meeting, council members will issue a proclamation recognizing David Schoenvogel, who is celebrating his 40th year leading the train at Landa Park.

Monday’s meeting will also include time for residents to address council on issues and concerns that are not on the agenda.
