Seeking a classy city Council members want only 'clean' industries By DANA STELL Staff writer They want only clean industries in town, and City Council members Monday took a step toward putting that feeling into the zoning code. Council met Monday night with the Planning and Zoning Commission to begin “cleaning up” the zoning classification list to allow only clean, labor-intensive industries. The groups also talked about the possibility of regulating billboard placement. “I am violently opposed to us dictating to the people what they can build, how they can build,” said councilmember Joe Rogers. “If we don’t want them in New Braunfels, then let’s Just take them off the list.” Rogers also said Monday that he is opposed to “trying to tell people where they can put signs” on their own property. Council directed the study of both a revised    industrial    zoning classification and a new billboard ordinance to the Planning and Zoning Commission. Among the types of Industry Council suggested be removed from the zoning classification list are rendering plants, tar distillation and manufacturing plants, steel furnaces, and plants that manufacture asphalt, disinfectant, insecticides or tar. Councilmember Betty Lou Rushing pointed out that the city is “not antidevelopment,” but simply should “establish and maintain that uniqueness, that touch of class, that is New Braunfels.” Fellow councilmember James Goodbread echoed her sentiment. “We don’t want to encourage obnoxious industries in this area,” he said. “We want to make it easier for you to expand so you don’t have to come in here every time.” Coleman Industries manager Randy Kuntz and directors of three other FM 306 industries drafted a proposed zoning classification for light and heavy industry (M-l and M-2). Several things were added to the M-l category, such as fiberglas use and bulk storage and warehousing, so Coleman and other industries could remain in that classification and expand, without having to be changed to M-2. Kuntz and officials of Detex and Tempflex also recommended that land adjacent to the industrial park be zoned C-l (local business) to serve as a buffer between the industries and residential property. “I vr^uldn’t want to build a house right next to industry and it helps me to know people won’t be so close,” Kuntz said. Mayor Barbara Tieken suggested updating some of the allowed uses in the zoning list to reflect the concerns of the Edwards Aquifer, such aa. underground storage tanks for service stations. She also suggested that any proposed M-l uses that aren’t specifically spelled out in the list ba presented to the Planning and Zoning Commission, along with approval from the appropriate state agendas, including the air control board and Edwards board. Planning and Zoning Commission plans to review the zoning classifications at the April meeting and will present information to Council in May. Meanwhile, the Commission will ba clarifying its views on a touchy iasua that is to be the subject of a March 4 workshop between the Commission and City Council. Members of Planning and Zoning Commission were asked to review several sample ordinance regulating billboards and come back to Council perhaps with suggestions about a possible ordinance. “It’s a matter of that touch of class that New Braunfels has to keep our community from being Uke every other community,” Rushing said. “I would hate to see us so inundated with signs — tacky, tacky — that we lose sight of our beautiful Hill Country.” Tieken said the city’s economy is supported by $35 milUon worth of tourist dollars per year. “That’s nothing to sneeze at,” she said. “We don’t bring them in here to look at our billboards. We bring them in here to look at the attractive beauty of New Braunfels. We’re looking at a multi-million doUar industry that we’ve got to be very careful not to mess up.” Planning and Zoning commissioners will meet with Council about billboards at 6 p m. March 4.
