By: Ashlei KingBULVERDE - As construction crews clear the land just west of Highway 281 near Highway 46, the City of Bulverde tries to find ways to better manage the growth."It has the possibility of changing the look and feel of Bulverde and that was one of our first concerns from the very beginning," Mayor Bill Krawietz said.Krawietz said a developer has big plans for a 250 acre area. There will soon be homes, apartments and stores like Walmart. Only ten percent of the land falls within city limits and under current laws Bulverde does not have the power to annex it."The city's going to be impacted by the burden of extra traffic, extra police protection, right away acquisition," the mayor explained.Krawietz is asking the citizens to change the law, so that the city can gain taxes from the new development."If we can't start taking in some of these new developments, the citizens are going to be burdened unfairly with a high tax burden," Krawietz said.In the past, proposals to give the city more control over annexation have been shot down by voters. Some fear if the law changes there will be no way to control what the city decides to annex."I don't like it. I think that the more the people come out here, the more problems there is," Dawn Trammel, area resident, said.Others said as long as the historic heart of Bulverde stays untouched, then they will welcome the growth and possible law change."I think with the growth being the responsibly of this area, this area needs to be able to have a hand in that responsibility and governing," Michael Pryor, business owner, said.The mayor will host a town hall on November 5th at the Bulverde Library.
