Discover Anchor Marina Park New Braunfels
Anchor Marina Park is on the Guadalupe River adjacent to The Bandit Gulf Club and just before it fills Lake McQueeney, which is accessible by boats at anchor marina’s boat docks. The location is also near where the fresh springs of the Comal River feed into the Guadalupe River, making the water spring fresh and near drinking quality.
This constant supply of sunshine and water make for a year-round lush green natural landscape that’s awesomely beautiful, and it’s between New Braunfels and Seguin, making it just far enough away from each to be accessible yet always peaceful.
What are the FEMA trailer cabins at Anchor Marina Park?
These are manufactured housing units. These new units are designed to support the real world, longer-term needs of disaster survivors after a disaster and are equipped with new features designed to promote safety and accessibility, including residential sprinklers and accommodations for survivors with access and functional needs. Unlike many mobile homes, this next generation of housing meets the rigid standards created by the Department of Housing and Urban Development, considered the gold standard of their class.
COMAL RIVER. The Comal River, said to be the shortest river in the United States, rises in a number of large springs in New Braunfels in southeastern Comal County (at 29°43′ N, 98°08′ W) and flows southeast for three miles to its mouth on the Guadalupe River, also in New Braunfels (at 29°42′ N, 98°07′ W).
Most of the land around the river has been developed by the city of New Braunfels. The abundant and reliable flow of the Comal provided power for the early industry of New Braunfels-gristmills and sawmills as well as flour and textile mills. With the development of alternative sources of power after 1900, much of the property along the banks of the river was converted to municipal parkland, including Landa Park.
Manufactured (FEMA) Homes
A structure, transportable in one or more sections, which is built on a permanent chassis and is designed for use with or without a permanent foundation when attached to the required utilities. The term manufactured home does not include a recreational vehicle. Generally, manufactured homes must meet the same requirements as stick built or conventional housing. Because they are usually residential buildings, they must be elevated so that the lowest floor is above the Base Flood Elevation (BFE).
Manufactured homes must be elevated and anchored to a permanent foundation to resist flotation, collapse, or lateral movement.
