New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - June 11, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Sunday, June 11,1995 ■ HerakJ-Zeitung ■ 3 A City and county move closer to agreements for Eikel Field and Faust Street Bridge By DENISE DZIUK Staff Writer Comal County Commissioners Court held a special meeting Thursday with th$ city council and staff members to discuss possible agreements between the two entities allow- I mg projects to be completed on Eikel field and the Faust Street Bridge. ’ Residents near Eikel Field expressed a desire to improve the park in the area. These improvements include a playscape, a picnic area, and a hike and bike trail. Comal County and the City of New Braunfels are working together on these developments. The city owns the land but is willing to blatch funds provided by the county And allow the county to develop the Jrea. > The county applied for a grant from !Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to help pay for this park, along with creating a park on land just south of the Canyon Dam. However, Eikel Field had to be removed horn the application due to the fact that the county cannot develop land it does not owr. The Faust Street Bridge Project is a plan to restore the bridge crossing the Guadalupe River. Currently, the large metal bridge joining the mill area and a residential area is closed and has been for many years. The Texas Department of Transportation awarded the county a grant to refurbish and reopen the bridge as a pedestrian and bike crossing. Tom Homseth, County Engineer, said completing the project would require an agreement with the city because the right of ways up to the bridge and under it are under the city’s control. He said completion of the project would require the county to improve and use the city’s land for parking, lights, and signs. “It’s‘very encouraging to see this kind of cooperation between the county and the city. This kind of thing has. gone on in the past, it just wasn’t seen,’’ said Commissioner J.L. Evans. Evans suggested that a solution to the projects’ completion may simply be one of support. The county should take the lead on the Faust Street Bridge project. The city should be supportive and have a vested interest in the bridge, and then they will lead in the Eikel Field Project, he said. County Judge Carter Casteel said that once the bridge is complete, the county may want the city to run and maintain it. Mike Shands, City Manager, said that doing so would increase the expenses of the city. However, Casteel said the county would probably be willing to share the expenses of running it with the city. One problem the city and county may incur is in the parks department. Manpower and money is already being spread thin and undertaking a project like this will pull the department in even more directions, said David Whatley, Director of Parks and Wildlife. The commissioners have agreed to allow their staff to meet with the city’s in an attempt to work out a draft of an agreement. City Council members present said they would take the issue before the entire council for a decision on whether the two staffs should begin a draft or if more discussion between p the two entities needs to occur. “There is definitely a strong desire on both parts to work something out because if we chose to restore the bridge, we’ll both see Jhe benefits and the burdens,’’ said Shands. “I think we’re getting closer to finding a way to complete the projects,’’ Casteel said.

Optimists make Jesse Garcia Park a greener place £y SUSAN FLYNT ENGLAND 'Staff Writer • * Jesse Garcia Park will be a cooler irnd prettier place, thanks to the Opticist Club. Optimists planted three ^chinquapin oak trees there Monday. The Optimists have set aside June S, 1995, as Optimists in Action Day — when they remind the community of all the services the Optimist Club does for area youth. This gift is especially thoughtful I because area clubs sometimes overlook smaller neighborhood parks and make donations to the more visible ► Landa Park, Community Development / -Director Penelope Church said. “You II Jsee young mothers with strollers walking to Jesse Garcia from the neighbor-vhood,” Church said. “These new trees * will provide more shade for the fami-‘ lies who use the park.” / Planting the oak trees was a truly /.cooperative effort. Club President Miles Parker led the effort. Parker, Guadalupe Memorial Park manager, got his company to donate the trees. Parks and Recreation workers did the actual planting. The city council gave Jesse Garcia Park its name Dec. 14, 1992, in honor of Jesse Garcia. Garcia dedicated much of his life to the youth of New Braunfels. He was active in Little League and served as vice president of the Alamo Area Scout Council. Garcia was recognized during his lifetime with the Order of the Arrow and Silver Beaver awards. The Chamber of Commerce gave him its President’s Award for Youth Development. New Braunfels High School honored Garcia with its Silver Unicom Award for Youth Development. Garcia’s widow Lucille Garcia carries on the family tradition of community service. She has given her time to the Red Cross for more than 25 years. The PT A has named her a life time member in honor of her service. Lucille Garcia serves on the Teen Connection Board — Teen Connection’s Thrift Shop wouldn’t mn without her. The Optimist Club’s 32 local members work diligently throughout the year on various projects benefiting area youth. Optimists recently honored 75 area high school students at their Youth Appreciation Banquet. Each summer Optimists help teach another crop of youngsters bicycle safety in their Safety On Wheels project. Local Optimists join Optimists worldwide in sponsoring oratorical contests. District winners net $1,500 scholarships. District Court of Appeals Judge Fred Biery was a national winner, Optimist John C. Lee said, as was Neal Patrick Harris, the actor who played Doogic Howser. “A lot of people have made good who got their start in the Optimist oratorical contests,” Lee said.
