Landa Building expansion begins
Crews in March began prepping the county's Landa Building for expansion to eventually house three courtrooms. That meant tearing out tile, walls and windows where the building's footprint will grow, as well as removing steel elevator supports inside the facility.

Expansion of the former First Federal Savings and Loan building that sits on the site of the former Landa family mansion is the first of a two-phase project that will also include renovating the Annex Building so that it houses four courtrooms.
Site lets visitors explore maps, history of county parks
Thanks to the mapping gurus at the Comal County Engineer's Office, residents can check out the county's four parks in detail, as well as learn a little about the history of how they came to be county parks.

In all, Comal County owns and maintains four parks – two nature trails and two sports complexes, one of each type near Bulverde and Canyon Lake – thanks to the generosity and hard work of our residents. Learn more about them by clicking below.
