Correspondent Cibolo City Council reversed itself this week regarding rezoning of a 15acre tract of land from res idential to commercial After five weeks of debate Cibolo council members side stepped a path laden with legal bombs by voting to invalidate a July 25 decision to rezone the property Cibolos text on rezoning has had a lot of eyes running over it recently Since the vote that changed the status of a piece of land that runs beside Farmto Market 1103 from residential to commercial property several sets of eyes have scoured the pages line by line Residents upset about the proposed zone change council members and city employees who want to get pro cedure straight and the planning and zoning commission all have been reading the ordinances fine print In looking over everything it appears city council failed to give notice to some people The notice is critical to the zoning city attorney Frank Porey said Tuesday At the heart of the problem was the citys failure to inform every one living within 200 feet of the property about the proposed zon ing change Although the propertys owner Frederick Schlather sent a letter to his neighbors a neighborhood group called Concerned Citizens of Cibolo said some residents were missed and outdated maps were used Suspicious of who their new neighbor could be residents researched the potential developer and began knocking on doors to alert each other about the pro posed zone change The worst thing that any leg islative group could do is even give the impression of wrongdo city administrator Ken Roberts said With all of the laws on the books open meetings and open records thats a citi zens entitlement Its their right to be informed and we have no right to stand in the way of that But they have a responsibility to tell the The vote to void the zoning decision was a technical knockout for the citizens group not an out right KO If council had voted against the zoning attempt then Schlather or whoever bought the land would have wait a year before trying again For now the issue has been sent back to the drawing board but Schlather already has promised Roberts he will try again In a June 14 letter to the plan ning and zoning committee Schlather said he hired an engi mm i I i I neering firm to assess his proper ty for residential development The assessment showed the property is virtually flat and could not be developed for high density housing due to the lack of proper he wrote Then he found Eagle Construction and Environmental Services a company looking to buy property somewhere between Austin and San Antonio The company already has offices that sit on less than 2acres of land in northwest San Antonio Eagle vice president Marc Walraven said his company need ed more room New Braunfels Bahamas Las
