The city of Seguin is in the midst of a housing boom that, if managed properly, could lead to improvements in the quality of life for residents, workers and more.

Luckily, the city is planning for the future, making improvements to roads, waste water infrastructure and more, City Manager Steve Parker said. Planning also brings benefits to the growth, he said.

Be very careful what you wish for, as you only have to drive to New Braunfels, San Marcos and other localities to see the faceless housing developments, ground covering concrete parking lots and acres of shifting businesses.

Growth, even controlled, may have a benefit to some, but it comes with a myriad of problems as well. Anyone bothered to think about the school system? The High School, due to poor long term planning, is about full up and was not ‘split’ to allow for proper growth. We’ve not really touched the debt on that location and will have to look to passing another.

Are we going to pass a bond for that without raising taxes on those already here?

Again folks, beware of what you wish for.
