City targets to annex more than 1,200 acres

Along with developers and those working in real estate, the city of San Antonio is targeting high-growth areas as part of its plan to annex more than 1,220 acres of unincorporated territory.

Starting with the U.S. Highway 281 North commercial corridor the city’s Planning Commission on Wednesday is slated to discuss the annexation of 1,224 acres along the arterial highway beginning south of Marshall Road and Northwind Boulevard in Bexar County and continuing north along Highway 281 to about 1,800 feet shy of Ancestral Trail in Comal County.

The city of San Antonio is proceeding with plans to target the annexation of five high-growth areas, which have the potential to add millions of dollars to the city’s tax base.

Annexing the land would not only protect the aquifer zone, but it would also maintain the quality of development under the city’s zoning, codes and planning purviews. It would also “expand the city’s economic vitality as a regional center by providing certainty and predictability, preserve the U.S. military missions through land-use controls, facilitate long-range planning in environmentally sensitive areas and growth centers, and enhance the city’s overall regional economic position in bringing new jobs, population and investment to the region,” according to the brief.

Other areas included in the city’s annexation program are the I-10 West corridor, the Highway 90 and Loop 1604 intersection, as well as the Highway 151 area.
