BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The City of New Braunfels and SA Kosta Brown, Ltd., developer of Creekside Farms Subdivision, have negotiated a Development Agreement under the City’s Roadway Impact Fee Ordinance in Chapter 100 of the Code of Ordinances to pay the excess costs of constructing to minor collector specifications a section of Orion Drive that is abutting or interior to this subdivision and to pay for the additionally required right of way.  The developer has constructed the section of Orion Drive which has been accepted and has dedicated the additional required right of way.

 

The developer is petitioning to be reimbursed for construction costs in the amount of $456,558.20 and for the dedication of the additional right of way in the amount of $138,663.00 for a total of $595,221.20.

 

Sufficient roadway impact fees have been collected from building permits issued to the Creekside Farms Subdivision, so funds are available to pay the developer.  This section of Orion Drive is identified as a minor collector on the City’s Thoroughfare Plan and Project 3-AC in the City’s Roadway Impact Fee Capital Improvements Plan.
