large corporations from relocating to C omal County, members agreed Other discussion included alternatives to a larger convention center, enticing chain hotels to build and provide better lodging, conversion of Ute Lower Colorado River Auth#f*lp~budding and lengthening the legal hours of drinking to 2 a in to invigorate the entertainment industry in New Braunfels and surrounding areas During a separate forum on urban design/main street/historic preservation, members discussed how to get more viable, committed business ventures to relocate in the downtown area, thereby enhancing return on tourist dollars Creating an atmosphere to attract tourists and modeling New Braunfels atter definite themes like the cities of Fredericksburg and Bransen City, Mo., have done, was also discussed “Tbc difference is, Fredericksburg is a destination,” said Connie Worley, a local business owner “We’re between Austin and San Antonio,” which requires small businesses in competition with the outlet malls and large department stores to really "sell their service ” Members of an educa-
tion/youtbpopulation forum talked about establishing a 501-C3 foundation to provide local control of funding.
The program, which has been successful in other school distncts like nearby Alamo Heights in San Antonio, allows patrons to contribute to no established foundation. These funds can- than Tm appropriated toward whatever the school district decides they should be. and not what the state mandates, according to Dana Gold, vice-chairman.
Improving or creating sidewalks along major streets, developing bike trails, casing traffic along Walnut Avenue and emphasizing recycling were other issues discussed in separate forums
Participants seemed satisfied about having attended the master plan forum
“It was interesting, and there were a lot of ideas,” said Robert Mason. "It's better to start when we're small than to let the growth get out of control ”
Another New Braunfels resident said she was glad to have some input
“I was really glad to see the city make this available,” said Susan Tolbert I'anebianco, a New Braunfels resident of 25 years "We have some great ideas, but what it really boils
down to is ‘what can the city provide?”’
John Dierksen, planning commissioner, said he was pleased with the turnout.
“We had some spmted sessions,” said Dierksen "The turnout was good for a Monday night.”
Harry Bennett, planning director, agreed
“We’re hoping for an equal or better turnout as the process continues and we reform our plans into policies."
The next phase of the master plan process will be sending the recommendations gathered in the Monday forum to consultants for analysis. Between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15, each subcommittee will meet again to make recommendations, and those will be sent to consultants once again Eventually, each subcommittee will go before a 10-member steenng committee, the planning commission and ultimately, the city council “It's an 18-month process,” said Bennett
The last time New Braunfels approved a master plan for city growth and development was in 1977. when the population of the city was approximately 15,000 Since then, the census has more than doubled
