South Castell Avenue Visioning Plan

New Braunfels City Council adopted the South Castell Avenue Visioning Plan in November of 2018.

This document  is the culmination of an 18 month planning process that involved more than 200 citizens to help determine the future of a unique assembly of properties in the downtown area.  By identifying development challenges early - and having a clear vision for the private sector to execute - the City and its various stakeholders have a clearer understanding of the project's risks, rewards, costs and opportunities.

As the City moves into the next steps of the project, community involvement will remain a vital element of this process.
