NOLANVILLE — The City Council wants to enhance the community and needs some help to carry out the plan.

The city will host a workshop sometime soon to allow Nolanville residents to reveal what they want in the city and how they’d like to see it develop.

“It would be wonderful if people come to put in their ideas,” Mayor Christina Rosenthal said. “It’s their community and that’s why I want it to be a workshop, so people can be there and say freely what they want to say.”

Abandoned structures that are eyesores are one of the concerns expressed in the community.

“We want to update the code enforcement ordinance to address some of the substandard houses in the area to work to get them cleaned,” City Manager Stephen Pearl said.

As for the mayor, she’d like to see improvements to Main Street and more sidewalks in the community, as well as more bus stops for public transportation.

“I wish I could win the lottery and fix it all,” Rosenthal said.

The mayor would also like to see more family-oriented businesses open in Nolanville to help provide economic growth.

Pearl said the council needs to plan a workshop to develop a strategic plan for the city and to update the 2007 comprehensive plan for land use, thoroughfares, drainage and subdivisions.

“We just want to go through it and update anything that needs to be,” Pearl said.
