Comal Street and the downtown area of San Antonio Street are losing their historic significance as the buildings are changed they said Those areas contain some homes built more than IOO years ago yet there are no means of requiring historic preservation Schumann said the neighborhood association concept is a good one Such an organization would give neighbors a way of banding together to improve iheir neighborhood bv preserving the historic value of the area she said But Schumann add ed the commission does not have the power to begin such an organization Member* of a neighborhood would have belter chances of getting an association started if they worked from within she said Perhaps we would be advised to pick out a street and then because of the common denominator among the people on that street the thing could grow from that I think it s one of those things that somebody who wants it will have to take it on as their project for tlk* next 15 years,’ Schumann said adding that historic preservation could be more successful growing from within a neighborhood Currently there are no historic districts in New Braunfels I nless a building is designated historic, the owner can change the appearance in any way as long as the building re mains in compliance with city building codes The idea of designating downtown as an historic area with different signs regulations was shot down when discussed among members of the New Braunfels City Council rn re cent years Local business persons said the designation would unfairly restrict them Persons involved in the current downtown revitalization effort in eluding city council member Jim Goodbread, have said they feel the historic integrity of the area is significant and should be preserved or restored when necessary New Braunfels ;
