Converse to annex 5.2 square miles Converse to annex 5.2 square miles https://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=155472017-01-10T06:00:00Z2017-01-10T16:00:00Z

​​CONVERSE – Under a proposed deal, the city will annex three square miles of unincorporated acreage along I-10 over a multiyear period. It will also get a 2.2-square-mile piece of San Antonio as part of a boundary adjustment.

The annexation will allow the city to provide services such as police and fire to residents and make infrastructure improvements in the area.

San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor said the agreement is the result of both municipalities taking a “regional planning approach” to the challenges created by continued growth in the Greater San Antonio area.​

One of the two areas Converse is gaining is near the intersection of I-10 and Loop 1604. The other is north of Gibbs Sprawl Rd. The annexation process will take around seven years to complete.

Both cities must adopt an interlocal agreement that will formally set the annexation plan in motion. San Antonio is expected to sign off on the agreement later this month, while Converse officials will address the issue in February.​​​
