chamber studies incorporation 1 1 i V ByDAVIDDEKUNDER Staff Writer The only way Bulverde cart avoid uncontrolled growth and the reach of San Antonio is through incorporation the head of a Bulverde Chamber of Commerce committee studying the issue said The important thing is we do it committee chairman Bob Hieronymus said The challenge of the community is to educate people to the real threats of big city politics and bureau cratic control The real opportunity for us is to con trol our own Hieronymus cited talk by the city of San Anto nio and Bexar County to consolidate their gov ernmental services and rampant growth as reasons why incorporation should be seriously consid ered by Bulverde residents There is great concern that San Antonio will expand its control in the area into Comal County and of course into the Bulverde Hieronymus said This concern is only heightened by ongoing attempts by San Antonio and Bexar County to consolidate their governmental entities If this happens it will extend San Antonios ETJ extra territorial jurisdiction to even one mile north of San Antonio So if Bexar and San Antonio con solidate the ETJ would start at the county There Is great concern that San Antonio will expand its control in the area into Comal Hieronymus With this additional ETJ Hieronymus said San Antonio would be able to exert control over what we can do with our During the recent fight over the Ingram Readymix plant in Bulverde Hieronymus cited Comal County Judge Carter Casteeei in town meetings as saying incorporation was the only way to stop undesirable growth in the area The Comal county itself cant protect Hieronymus said We need some form of zoning ordinances and as San Antonio presses north ward we will have some uncontrollable industri al growth along Highway 281 If this growth is not controlled we will see property values drop Safe ty hazards and unsightly development will be the order of the day It would drastically affect the quality of life in this Incorporation would allow Bulverde to control the increased growth in the area Hieronymus said v Without incorporation you have no say in whats happening and then you have uncontrolled Hieronymus said Kate Mathis president of CLEAN Citizens League for Environmental Action Now which fought the Ingram plant said her group is study ing the issue of incorporation We havent been actively involved in Mathis said We have been busy Mathis said CLEAN members are researching and looking into three different options for con trolling growth in the Bulverde area increased county ordinance powers incorporations and a water district which was rejected by voters last year but which Mathis believes could have a sec ond chance because of Ingrains attempt to build a concrete batch plant near the Trinity Aquifer and the Edwards Aquifer We are trying to educate ourselves by research ing the pros and cons of each Mathis said Weve got to do our homework It wiil be inter esting to find out what they chamber committee come up We dont want to frighten people with the specter of another layer of Hierony mus said But you will get it with the ETJ from San Antonio or with Man is charged in January murder of deputy constable ByMELANIEGERIK Staff Writer NBISD plans construction of new school By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer The board of trustees for the New Braunfels Independent School Dis trict is looking at preliminary plans for a new school that should be completed just in time for an influx of students Superintendent Charles Bradber ry said the land was bought about at T V It was using past bond money and was bought Jn anticipation of the growth in stu dent population We try to stay ahead of the curve as much as possible by pur chasing the land ahead of time instead of waiting for when were overcrowded and the prices are said Bradberry The new school will be located on South Walnut Street across from the Memorial schools Bradberry said the proposed plan is to make Memorial Primary preK through first grade Memorial Elementary second and third grade and Memo rial Intermediate fourth and fifth grade He said consideration is also being given to setting boundaries for Carl Schurz The Carl Schurz area would probably stay on one side of Interstate 35 with students on the other side attending the new school However that has not been approved by the board yet Brad berry said the new school would be very similar to the current Memorial schools Its designed basically on the same ideas that the rest of the schools in that area are based he said Architect Herb Crume with Jessen and Associates told the board the designs include separate entrances for cars and buses and a courtyard in the center to proyjde the library with natural light The preliminary design also allows the gym library cafeteria and admin istration area to be accessed after hours without providing access to the classroom areas Crume said the design also has room for future expansion Youre probably going to be adding on in three or four years or less Youll save a lot of money planning said Crume Bradberry said he is hopeful that groundbreaking can occur as early as June He also said he is being Very optimistic in saying the pro ject could be completed as early as August of 1997 He said the dis trict will be in real need of the extra room by that time Weve planned it pretty close By that time well
