Description:                     Platting 17.81 acres into 78 single-family residential lots and 3 drainage lots




The subject property is located within the City Limits of New Braunfels in Comal County on the north side of Conrads Lane between FM 1102 (Hunter Road) and Goodwin Lane and zoned “R-1A-5.5” Single Family Residential District.  The plat proposes 78 single family residential lots and 3 drainage lots on 17.81 acres.  A master plan for the Cloud Country Subdivision was approved in 2006 and revised in 2013.  A minor master plan revision application is currently in the process for administrative approval.  Units 1, 2, 4 and 5 of the subdivision have been recorded.  A preliminary plat for Unit 6 was approved in 2019. The proposed final plat is in conformance with these plans.



The Public Works Department reviewed project drainage with the Letter of Certification process and the approved construction plans as required by Section 118-51e of the Platting Ordinance and in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 143 Municipal Drainage Utility Systems, and the Drainage and Erosion control and Design Manual.


No portion of this subdivision is located within the 100-year floodplain.



Electric, water and wastewater services will be provided by New Braunfels Utilities (NBU).  Utilities will be extended as part of this plat in accordance with the approved construction plans.  Utility easements are indicated on the plat as required.



Regional Transportation Plan:

The plat is in compliance with the Regional Transportation Plan.  The existing right-of-way width on Conrads Lane varies and is approximately 50 feet at this location.  A 10-foot right-of-way dedication for Conrads Lane will occur with the recordation of this plat.


Hike and Bike:

There are no trails identified on the City’s Hike and Bike Trails Plan within or adjacent to the subject property.  The applicant is not proposing any trails and the plat is in compliance with the City’s Hike and Bike Trials Plan.



Four-foot wide sidewalks will be constructed by the developer or home builder along all internal streets within the subdivision and 6-foot wide sidewalks adjacent to Conrads Lane.


Roadway Impact Fees:

The subject property is hereby assessed Roadway Impact Fees for Roadway Impact Fee Service Area 3 with the approval of this final plat.  The Roadway Impact Fees will be collected at the time of building permit as indicated in the then current fee schedule for the intended use.


Parkland Dedication and Development:

This subdivision is subject to the 2006 Parkland Dedication and Development Ordinance.  Dedication and development requirements have been met for the 546 residential lots approved with the current master plan.  A total lot count of 595 is proposed with the minor master plan revision.  The developer will pay fees in lieu of parkland dedication and development for each additional dwelling unit in excess of 546.  These fees will be paid with future units as this unit and the Unit 8 plat being considered on this agenda do not put the total lot count over 546.









To meet the requirements of the City’s Subdivision Platting Ordinance and other adopted codes, the plat must comply with the conditions noted below.  Staff recommends approval of the proposed plat subject to the following conditions of approval:
