Established in the early 1900s, the property owned and operated by Union Pacic Railroad will eventually be purchased by the city of New Braunfels and redeveloped. It is one of the last industrial properties downtown. MAKING WAY FOR CHANGE

The city hopes to acquire the downtown Union Pacic Railroad rail yard property.

said. “Transitioning this older, indus- trial use out of the area has numerous benets for the community at large.” City ocials have been working to relocate public works facilities and underused industrial sites in the downtown area to other parts of the city to make way for new develop- ment in the city’s core, he said. Moving the rail yard operations to a new location would allow work to begin on the city’s South Castell Avenue Visioning Plan, Mayor Rusty Brockman said during an April 11 meeting. The plan was adopted in 2018 and created development guidelines for approxi- mately 10 acres in the downtown area. “We are certainly a lot closer and a lot farther down the track than we ever thought we might be at this point,” Brockman said at the meeting. “It’s been a long road to be able to make these kinds of strides.” CONTINUED ON 26

On April 11, the New Braunfels City Council unanimously approved an expenditure of $2.18 million from the New Braunfels Economic Development Corp. as part of an agreement to acquire the Union Pacic rail yard property located on South Castell Avenue. This recently approved agreement has paved the way for future develop- ments in the downtown area following several years of negotiations between Union Pacic and area ocials, said Je Jewell, director of economic and com- munity development for the city. Through the deal, the city will also fund engineering and design costs associated with constructing a replacement facility for Union Pacic to relocate its operations to an unin- corporated part of Comal County. “This is reallymerely the beginning of a process that has been negotiated with Union Pacic since early 2020,” Jewell

COURTESY SJRC TEXAS

FEATURED IMPACT NOWOPEN SJRC Texas has embarked on a new eort to meet the needs of children in the foster care system who are exiting psychiatric care and in the process of entering their next placement. In partnership with SJRC’s Belong division and Touchstone Alliance, a nonprot operating as part of SJRC, the organization recently opened an integrative treatment center in New Braunfels. “We needed something in our community that really would serve our kids that stepped down from psychiatric hospitals that are not quite ready for the next [place], whether it be in [residential treatment centers] or a foster home or the next place that they go, without a little more support and services,” said Tara Roussett, CEO of SJRC Texas and Belong. The center will receive its rst placements later this spring, Roussett said, and will be focused on serving girls ages 13-18. The program is designed for children to stay at the 16-bed center for no more than 90 days while the interdisciplinary team provides behavioral, mental and physical programming and preparation for the child’s next placement. “We want to get our kids and get them

fully assessed for what they need, then communicate with the next place they’re going, which is hopefully to a family setting,” Roussett said. “We want to have everything set up for success in that transition, and then Touchstone will follow them to the next place to ensure that they’re getting their continued mental health needs met.” SJRC’s Belong division oversees the Community Based Care initiative in the Department of Family and Protective Services South Central Hill Country region, which encompasses 27 counties between Jackson County and Val Verde County, excluding Bexar County. Roussett said the program will expand to serve other demographics throughout the region as part of a statewide eort. “Every decision that we make with the children under our care is for what we can do today to get them to permanency,” she said.

The existing climbing nets will also be repaired. The updates are part of a more than $260,000 project approved by New Braunfels City Council members in January.

SouthStar Communities breaks ground onMayfair development in NewBraunfels

BREAKING GROUND

After more than two years of planning, SouthStar Communities broke ground on Sector 1 Plan of the Mayfair development.

THE FIRST SECTOR INCLUDES:

BY LAUREN CANTERBERRY

The rst sector encompasses about 387 acres, and the plan includes the construction of approximately 1,532 housing units, a school site, a recreation center and 99 acres of parkland, according to SouthStar. The plan also includes nature trails and road- ways, and it identies two proposed water-quality and stormwater detention facilities. On June 28, 2021, the city of New Braunfels approved the Mayfair Development Agreement with SouthStar, giving the city oversight in the planning, permitting and construction of the development. The agreement was executed Feb. 9. A water improvement district— also approved in June—allows SouthStar to use tax revenue generated in the district to reimburse part of its expenses associated with constructing infrastructure. The city and developer also adopted the master framework plan, which established development outlines for the community, including land use, roadways, project boundaries and more. Projects included in the sector plan comply with the framework plan and development agreements, according to city documents.

SouthStar Communities hosted a groundbreaking celebration April 12 for the upcoming 1,888-acre mixed-use community known as Mayfair. The development is slated to bring 6,000 housing units, more than 330 acres of public parks, four schools and more to the New Braunfels area over the next 15 years. Mayfair is located in the extraterritorial juris- diction, or ETJ, of New Braunfels on property that was previously owned by the Texas General Land Oce, and a study conducted by TXP Inc., an economic analysis and public policy consulting rm, estimated that the development will create 2,000 permanent jobs. “We hope our public spaces in our districts, and our jobs, and the commercial areas, [and] 100 acres of restaurants and retail benet and accentuate what’s already great for New Braunfels,” said Thad Rutherford, CEO of SouthStar, during the ceremony. On March 28, New Braunfels City Council approved the Sector 1 Plan for the development during a regular council meeting.
