Lake Dunlap Restoration Plan presented to community

The plan must be approved by property owners before moving forward.

SAN ANTONIO — There's a plan to restore Lake Dunlap, but it needs to be approved by property owners before anything can be done. 

The Preserve Lake Dunlap Association presented a plan to restore Lake Dunlap to the community last night. 

The plan must be approved by property owners before moving forward. 

You'll recall the lake was drained last month following a spillgate failure.

The plan presented by the PLDA would allow waterfront property owners to take over control of the dam via the creation of Water District. This would occur under a partnership with the Association, GBRA and Guadalupe City. 

It would increase taxes by $6-8 linear foot of lakefront per year for 30 years. 

In the proposal, the GBRA would sell the dam to the Water District for $1.
