with a different idea for the right-of-way.
“For many years, I’ve been an advocate of an outer loop for New Braunfels,” Hasert said.
The MKT right-of-way could work for the road, which could connect McKenna Memorial Hospital to Loop 337, he said. “It’s not set in stone; it’s just one man’s concept,’’ Hasert said.
The subcommittee came up with a compromise recommendation.
“We will recommend that the city acquire the right-of-way from Conrads Road through town to a point one and one-half miles southwest of Solms Road,” HaSCTT said.
And the land’s use would be
shared, he said, between a thoroughfare and a hike-and-bike greenbelt.
“There’s adequate room for all to share in that,” Hasert said.
Whether the thoroughfare and hike-and-bike trail turn out to ^e plans or pipe dreams could depend on Union Pacific, which owns the strip of land. ^
“The major concern is acquisition,” Shands said.
He wrote a letter to UP in 1996 asking the railroad giant to donate the land to the city.
Shands paraphrased Union. Pacific’s answer, “You don’t even have a prayer of having it donated, but we will look at selling it.”.
The selling price, however, is still big unknown.
“What are they going to appraise it
at, that’s what they’ve been waiting to find out for several months,” Shands said.

we will see a lot of growth in that area,” Scheel said, referring to the surface water pipeline the Guadalupe-Bianco River Authority wants to build from Canyon Lake to San Antonio. “I want to preserve the rural lifestyle.”
Under TNRCC regulations, the mandated minimum size for a lot in a subdivision is a half acre. These rules apply to unincorporated areas of the county.
“When a developer includes a water system in the subdivision, he can currently go down to half an acre,” Homseth said. “lf no water system is being proposed, and each owner of that lot is required to construct his own water well (and septic system) within that lot, then the most stringent rule applies. That

boosts the minimum (lot) size to about three acres.”
Hornseth said when a septic system and water well were put on the same lot, the county used a special test to determine if the lot met regulations.
“In Comal County, we have what is called the ‘radius test’, a developer
has to prove that a septic system and water well will fit in the limits of the proposed lots,” Homseth said.
Scheel said lot sizes needed to be increased for environmental and public health reasons.
Increasing lot sizes would reduce the density of people, he said, which would reduce the amount of septic systems placed above the porous ground of the Trinity Aquifer in western Comal County. He said this possibly would reduce the amount of effluent that went into the aquifer.
Homseth said if the county wished to go along with more stringent regulations than those required by the TNRCC, it must get permission from that agency.
Once the new regulations are drafted by Homseth, which could take 30 days or more, then the proposed rules would be presented to
“They (commissioners) have to approve the new regulations,” Homseth said. “They then have to submit the regulations to the TNRCC staff for approval. Then there is public notification and hearings so that the public can discuss these regulations. Then the county would adopt a resolution to order the changes. We would then send the order to the actual (TNRCC) commission, who would either approve or disapprove the rules. At that time the rules would take effect ”
Homseth said during the time he was drafting the proposed septic system rule changes, the county might conduct informal meetings to get input from the public on the changes.
If the proposed one-acre lot size
