Converse City Council voted 4-2 on Tuesday to back an interlocal annexation agreement with San Antonio that will ultimately triple the size of Converse.
The population of Converse, currently at 22,000, actually will grow to more than the projected 62,000-plus over the life of the 17-year deal.
City Council unanimously approved an Inter-Local Agreement with the City of Converse that will triple its size and and population over the next 17 years.
A surplus of $8.6 million over 20 years is expected if the Converse annexes the same area once rejected by San Antonio’s City Council.
Converse will add 5.2 square miles to its city limits, with San Antonio giving up 2.2 square miles of land through boundary adjustments.
