Architects to plan parking garage
and adding an elevated walkway over S. Casten Avenue from the proposed parking area to the civic center’s second level would help, some say.
Parking is the only issue to resolve.
With the civic center expanding into its own parking lot, the facility will require 800 parking spaces.
Officials have discussed several options for meeting that demand, including leasing 146 spaces at the Elks Lodge across S. Seguin Avenue; leveling the city’s sanitation yard and the Department of Public Safety facility at the comer of S. Casten Avenue and West Garden Street; and obtaining the Chase Manhattan drive-through bank on S. Casten Avenue.
Last week, architect Ken Rehler released to council four draft options for the civic center addition and parking lots.
City Manager Chuck Pinto said the most likely option

Visiting campus a must for students
with that goal in mind; They came to sell education to high school juniors and seniors.
Many schools are already sending acceptance letters, and the first to be accepted get first dibs on housing, classes and even scholarships.
More selective school might have earlier deadlines or reach their projected freshman enrollment early and close admission, said Donna Leifeste, a counselor at New Braunfels High School.
"Those deadlines give students a false sense of security,” Leifeste said.
Students need to start shopping for schools their sophomore year, SharonlStrickLand, an NBHS counselor. That way high schoolers can plan their high school classes to fit requirements of different uni-

would be obtaining the Chase property for parking since talks have been initiated there.
The city has not talked to the Elks about leasing parking. And, Pinto said, the Elks’ property might be a bad idea because civic center patrons would have to cross busy S. Seguin Avenue.
Also, if events at the civic center and the lodge are planned for the same date, the parking situation could be further complicated.
Architects will plan to build a 362-space, two-level garage on the Chase property and fall back on leasing Elks property.
If the Chase idea falls through, architects will have to build a four-level garage at the sanitation yard to provide adequate parking.
Pinto said he expects to see more detailed plans and cost estimates in 30 to 40 days. He predicts a completion date of June 2006.
New Braunfels voters decided earlier this year to allow the city to use its part of hotel-occupancy tax hinds to pay for the civic center.
Economic development sales tax dollars also will be used.

This drawing depicts the most probable option for the New Braunfels Civic Center expansion. The property at the corner of West Garden Street and South Casten Avenue across from city hall is city-owned property housing Department of Public Safety offices. The property along South Casten Avenue consists of the current city hall facility, the proposed future city hall addition, the sanitation yard and Chase Manhattan drive-through bank.

Many universities require pre-calculus and four years of science coursework, she said.
Students must reconcile their most ambitious school goals with more practical alternatives. Students should consider cost, location and academic difficulty.
“Everybody wants to go to A&M or UT,” Strickland said.
Still, most students start off at community colleges closer to home, Strickland said.
To help sort out the practical from the dream, students should visit a campus and talk to students who experience everyday college life there.
“They need to get on the campus,” Leifeste said.
A school’s student population, housing and geography can prove unbearable in a student’s first semester — when it’s too late to have second thoughts, Leifeste said.
“We tell kids they have to have a realistic school, a dream school and a fallback school,” Leifeste said.
And seniors should apply to each of them. This can save a lot of last-minute scrambling and concern, especially if a rejection letter comes from a student’s dream school.
Students can always transfer from a community college to a more ideal four-year university, Miller said.

For students who have not decided, parents and students need to be proactive in participating in college investigative and recruitment opportunities offered by high schools, Leifeste said.
College admissions representatives will be visiting the schools to talk about admissions and financial aid throughout the fall semester.
