are voting to incorporate because of laws set up by the legislature.
A town meeting about incorporation was conducted Monday night at the Guadalupe Valley Telephone Cooperative. Alston said at that meeting if Bulverde Hills and Bulverde Estates were to consider incorporation, they would not have enough people to do it.
If Bulverde Hills and Bulverde Estates were to incorporate as a whole it would be a total area of 4 square miles. Under the law an area that size would need to have a population of at least 5,000 people.
Bulverde Hills and Bulverde Estates would not qualify since they have a population around 1,450.
Plans have been made to try and incorporate Bulverde Hills and Bulverde Estates separately, each within a 2-square-mile area. Under incorporation laws, a 2-square-mile area needs 201 or more residents in order to incorporate. Oak Village North with a 2-square-mile area has about 500 residents.
Bulverde Estates resident Bob Barton warned the more than 150 people gathered in the GVTC auditorium that if they did not vote to incorporate they would soon be

annexed by San Antonio.
“We will have increased problems if we don’t incorporate,” Barton said.
Barton said San Antonio planned to annex the Stone Oak subdivision in northeast Bexar County by Jan. I.
He said if Bulverde South was not incorporated, San Antonio’s extra territorial jurisdiction (ETJ) would spread out in a 5-mile radius into Comal County north of the Bulverde Air Park.
Currently San Antonio’s ETJ extends along the Cibolo Creek in Comal County and U.S. 281 south. The ETJ line is near Bulverde Road and is south of the intersection of U.S. 281 and Farm-to-Market 1863.
“Five hundred and seventy-six feet,” Barton said. “That is how close they are before they get to Bulverde Road.”
Barton said he has obtained a copy of San Antonio’s annexation plans for 1997-98 which he said showed that San Antonio plans to annex a 1,000-foot strip between Camp Bulbs and the city of Fair Oaks Ranch.
He said once that annexation was complete, San Antonio’s ETJ would extend 5 miles from that new
Drawing with a protractor on a maf, Barton showed the ETJ would take in Bulverde Hills, Indian Creek Ridge, most of Bulverde Road and extend to Texas 46 west near the community of Anhalt.
“We can stop it,” Barton said. “We can go to the polls on Nov. 4 and vote for incorporation.”
Stopping San Antonio from annexing Oak Village North motivated Janet Best to circulate petitions the last minute before the deadline for election could be called. Best said she and her friend Diana ‘ Schwind quickly mobilized their neighbors to sign the petition.
“We found out at about noon Sunday that we needed 50 signatures (by Monday the next day),” Best said. “We started driving around the neighborhood and we called people on the cellular phones.”
Bulverde Estates resident Bill Wall urged people to vote for incorporation.
“Hang on to your lifestyle and do it tenaciously, or it is gone,” Wall said airth? Applause.
