Kerrville 2050 Plan Gets Two Nay Votes

The Kerrville 2050 plan ran into a snag this week with two city council members voting against it. The Daily Times reports Councilmen George Baroody and Vincent Voelkel voted against the plan saying it could have unintended consequences, like gentrification. That could mean some areas become more affluent quickly and bring concerns about keeping things affordable and some being pushed out of neighborhoods. The 400-page covers things land use, economic development, housing, downtown, parks and open space, and public facilities and services, and took nine months to finish. A final vote is planned for June 26 at 6 p.m. at the Kathleen C. Cailloux City Center. For more on the plan go to
