The city of New Braunfels is in the midst of updating its local, development-related ordinances and will be hosting three workshops Oct. 24 and 25 at city hall, seeking feedback from residents and the community.

What you need to know

The land development ordinance project comes as a result of the Envision New Braunfels plan completed last year, one of the city's long-range plans, according to a city news release. The ordinances outline how to lay out subdivisions, determine what can be built on which lot and how to properly design commercial signage, among other things.

“The next round of workshops will focus on the Development Standards module, which includes, but is not limited to, the standards for parking, landscaping, tree preservation, lighting, subdivision design and open space,” New Braunfels Planning Director Christopher Looney said in the release. “We have been impressed with the level and detail of the public input we have received throughout the [land development ordinance] process, and we look forward to hearing from the community at the series of upcoming workshops.”
