In 2008, the City of Helotes Economic Development Corporation commissioned a Preliminary Engineering Study for Proposed Water and Sanitary Sewer Lines along Bandera Road between Circle A Trail and Scenic Loop Road. The goal of the project is to facilitate economic development activities to the north of Circle A Trail and improve fire safety through the addition of fire hydrants along Helotes' major commercial corridor.
Since 2008, the City and EDC have investigated ways to fund both the engineering and construction of said utility lines, including a cost sharing partnership between the City and San Antonio Water System (SAWS). In December 2013, LNV Engineering was awarded a contract to complete all engineering phases for the project, including the creation of a full set of construction documents.
The City Council approved a Utility Service Agreement with SAWS on February 12, 2015. On July 23, 2015, the City Council issued Certificates of Obligation to fund project construction. The Project was awarded for construction to EZ-Bel Construction. Construction should be completed by May 2018.
