January 24, 2016: In the Community

On Tuesday, January 24, at a meeting of the Comal Independent School District Student Advisory Committee, Planning and Community Development Director Christopher Looney engaged local high school students in an interactive dialogue about Envision New Braunfels.

Assisted by Texas State University interns Emilio Levario and Katherine Crowe, the students learned about careers, comprehensive planning, and Envision New Braunfels. 

This event also provided students with an opportunity to put their real-world planning skills to the test!

Teens worked together in small groups to prepare land use maps illustrating future visions for the Creekside area. Then, each student team shared their vision and land use strategies with the group.

See each team’s vision below.
