At its upcoming May 23 meeting, the New Braunfels City Council will seat a new council member for District 2, Christopher Willis.

Willis was elected May 7 with 81.48% of the vote. He is succeeding outgoing Mayor Pro Tem Justin Meadows, who did not seek re-election.

Following a recognition of public service presentation to Meadows, the City Council will consider who will replace him as mayor pro tem and finalize a contract with Comal County for the District 1 runoff election slated for June 18.

Two municipal utility districts and multifamily rezoning up for discussion

Two proposed municipal utility districts within the city’s extraterritorial jurisdiction will be considered at the May 23 meeting.

The Flying W MUD would encompass about 362 acres slated for housing development on the west side of FM 1102, across from the intersection with Watson Lane. A portion of the land—about 87 acres—is within the Edwards Aquifer recharge zone. The development agreement, if approved, would be among the city, Aguilas Robles LLC and MJD Endeavors LLC. Single-family residential development is proposed for the area.

Comal County MUD 3 is also on the agenda, encompassing a 637.72-acre area on the west side of FM 306 and across from the intersection with Hoffman Lane. The developer, 306 Properties LP, is proposing single-family residential development along with some commercial areas.

A rezoning request for a proposed 240-unit multifamily complex on about 11 acres along the N. I-35 access road near the intersection of Rueckle Road is also on the agenda. City staff is recommending the City Council approve the rezoning request.
