Boerne Open Neighborhood Discussion

In the Spring of 2021, the City of Boerne's Planning and Zoning Department created an informational opportunity for residents to learn about proposed developments near their homes or businesses.

What is a BOND?

The community engagement meetings of the City of Boerne are referred to as BOND – Boerne Open Neighborhood Discussion. The BOND meetings are hosted by the City to provide an opportunity for community members to have an informal conversation regarding various topics of interest that impact the community. The most common matters for discussion are potential development projects that may include rezoning(s), subdivisions or requests for creative solutions. The BOND meetings are intended to provide an opportunity for open dialogue and to hear feedback from the community before a case goes before the City for formal consideration.

While BOND meetings are not required prior to formal consideration, the City encourages participation. BOND meetings do not replace the opportunity for public discussion and comments at the formal public meeting for consideration. BOND meetings are for informational purposes only and are held in addition to the formal public meeting(s).

What to Expect at a BOND Meeting?

On the day of the BOND 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.

What if I miss the BOND Meeting?

BOND meetings are recorded for anyone who is unable to attend and can be viewed on the City's Video On Demand webpage.
