Public input was the focus of a meeting Wednesday night at city hall centering on the proposed development project on the 10-acre South Castell Avenue site.  The session proposed three new possible plans for redevelopment of the area, after which attendees submitted feedback in the form of written surveys. 

The council chambers was filled to capacity by residents interested in learning about any new developments.

MIke Meek and the Chamber 's pockets will be stuffed as the new hotel will generate Hotel Tax dollars which almost all go to the Chamber. The tax is 13% and the Stae gets 6% and the City gets 7%. The city turns most of it over to the Chamber.
Option C is a strawman put up by the architect. It doesn't have a courtyard as there's surface parking instead of a parking garage. If there was a parking garage there could be a large courtyard similar to Options A & B.

Waiting on yet another train in the city limits of New Braunfels while the city seems to think making a pet project a reality is more important.
Making roads go up and over railroad crossings like the two on Walnut Ave. would serve the public.
I'm wondering whose pockets are being filled by doing the South Castell Avenue Project?
