Street Design Guide

On behalf of the City of New Braunfels, thank you for your participation in our online comment forum!

The City of New Braunfels identified the need to provide guidance on street design and apply a consistent approach for designing streets, intersections, pavements, and structures. Current street design guidance is provided in various locations including Chapters 114 and 118 of the Code of Ordinances, city checklists and standard details, federal and state manuals, and City of San Antonio design requirements. It was determined that the City needed a street design guide to provide modern guidance and a stand-alone document to assist in planning, designing, and constructing streets in New Braunfels.

The City hired Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc to assist in preparing the proposed Street Design Manual in a phased effort. Kimley-Horn has assisted other cities like New Braunfels to develop a street design criterion from the ground up. The manual was developed in coordination with City Departments and the proposed Thoroughfare Plan update.


The draft Street Design Manual has been presented at the following meetings:

  • Planning Commission on April 6, 2021
  • Stakeholder public input meeting on June 10, 2021

Future meeting information will be posted here as it is scheduled.

Stakeholder workshop on July 6, 2021
Time:10:00 a.m. to noon
Where: New Braunfels City Hall (550 Landa Street), Council Chambers

 The comment period for the draft documents will remain open through July 30, 2021.
