Boerne Open Neighborhood Discussion (B.O.N.D.) meetings are an informal opportunity for residents to learn about proposed developments near their homes or businesses.
Hosted by the City’s Planning and Community Development Department, these meetings discuss projects that may include rezoning, subdivisions, or requests for creative solutions. The meetings allow developers to hear feedback from the community before a case goes before the City for formal consideration.
While B.O.N.D. meetings are not required prior to formal consideration, the City encourages participation among developers and residents. B.O.N.D. meetings do not replace the opportunity for public discussion and comments at the formal public meeting for consideration. B.O.N.D. meetings are for informational purposes only and are held in addition to the formal public meetings.
What can I expect at a B.O.N.D. Meeting?
On the day of the B.O.N.D. meeting, the applicant (person who submitted the request form), developer, or project representative will give a brief overview or presentation of the proposed project and the community will provide questions and feedback.
This allows the applicant/developer/representative to respond and answer any questions about the project. The dialogue will also allow consideration of any concerns raised by the community.
When and where are B.O.N.D. meetings held?
B.O.N.D. meetings are held on the third Tuesday of every month via ZOOM. However, there may be instances where special meetings will be held in addition to regular scheduled meetings. All B.O.N.D. meetings and information to join via Zoom can be found below under "Upcoming B.O.N.D. Meetings" and on the City of Boerne Calendar.
