Kingsbury Has First Voluntary Annexations
The City of Kingsbury extended it's city limits for the first time on Monday, June 20, 2016 by voting to approve Voluntary Annexations submitted by area land owners.
Suzy and Howard Wilson and Leonora Kuhn and Maurice West had submitted voluntary annexation petitions which were processed by city staff. A notice was published in the Gazette for the Public Hearings required before the City Commission can act. The first Public Hearings were held Saturday, June 18th at the sites of the annexation requests, and the second Public Hearing for all properties was held during the Kingsbury City Commission meeting on Monday, June 20th. At that time, the Mayor and Commissioners voted to approve the ordinances for the annexations and it was done!

The Kingsbury City Commission holds a Public Hearing during the regular City Commission meeting on June 20, 2016. The Commission votes to approve the annexations and creates the ordinances making the properties now part of the Kingsbury City Limits!
On the map below, the new additions are in the dashed white area on Jackson Road and Wilke Road. The blue area is the Seguin ETJ (extra-territorial jurisdiction), and the red is the Kingsbury city limits.
These were just the first and there are many more annexation petitions that have been filed. The City of Kingsbury continues to grow as these and more petitions are processed and acted upon.
