During the March 19 Schertz City Council meeting, a public hearing will be held for the Comprehensive Master Plan.

This plan serves as a guide to city development over the next 20 years.

The background

The Comprehensive Plan used by Schertz staff was first adopted in 2002, with a life span of 15-20 years. In 2013, the Schertz Sector Plan was adopted to supplement the 2002 plan.

With the life cycle of the current plan at an end, Schertz staff began work on an update to the plan in 2023.

Through efforts from planning consulting firm Freese and Nichols, the Comprehensive Plan Advisory Committee and city staff, the plan has been developed over the last year.

According to the City Council agenda, the plan is broken into four chapters, including:
  • Community snapshot
  • Focus area and engagement
  • Land use and economic strategy
  • Appendices
A breakdown of each of these chapters can be found in the planned City Council agenda for March 19.

The City Council meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the City Council Chambers located at 1400 Schertz Parkway, Bldg. 4, Schertz.
