Who Will Live Here?


A proposed development at Canyon Lake is not Section 8 housing.

Reacting to reports on social media, Donna Eccleston, Comal County Commissioner Pct. 1, says a resolution on the Commissioners Court agenda for tomorrow, Feb. 15 instead would approve a senior living complex for people ages 62 and older.

The state of Texas requires a resolution before the facility can receive a nine-percent tax credit that would allow it to “offer discreet and dignified rent discounts to some of the residents,” she wrote on a Facebook post that also was shared via email by Canyon Lake residents.

If approved tomorrow, the resolution will support Highlander Senior Village, located at the northwest quadrant of Johnson Way and FM 1863.

A separate resolution would approve another senior-living facility in Bulverde, at Johnson Ranch.

“There seems to be a misconception about a proposed development at Canyon Lake that is making application to the State,” she says. “The Development being proposed for Island View at Canyon Lake is not Section 8 housing. It is a Senior Living complex. It is for people 62 and older. It will have an onsite manager and maintenance and this company has been building and operating their facilities for fifteen years. All the units are the same.

“The state requires an application for the 9 percent tax credit to include a resolution. The tax credit, if they are selected, allows them to offer discreet and dignified rent discounts to some of the residents.”
