Let me use my phone while I'm driving

I like to txt my gram when I'm driving to keep her from feeling lonely. Now San Antonio is infringing on my first amendment right and upsetting my gram. Undo this horrible law and let me driving without all the distracting feeling of guilt.

Ban the Internet

After all the squabbles San Antonio has had with Uber and Google Fiber, it'd be best if we could leave this nuisance behind us. It's just not worth the trouble.

Children should be allowed to smoke

In addition to helping spur the economy, allowing children to smoke would create numerous jobs in the medical field here in San Antonio. It is their bodies and we have no right to deny them the right to smoke. Also, lets smoke in bars again.

Pay our Police and Fire Officers

Why are we short changing the people who protect our community and keep us safe? These people deserve every cent they asked for.

Downtown Bus Stops

Downtown Bus Stops are used as a Hangout for Homeless and transient People. Terrible presence and Scary to walk by. Harassed by beggars every blocks. Not good for Locals and Tourists.

Move Bus stops, especially Big transfer points to outside downtown ASAP.

Airport

With projected growth a 2nd airport should be considered. Austin has the iH35 covered, current airport has the Northside, so the obvious location site should be South San Antonio.

 

The former Kelly AFB & surrounding area would be a good area flat needs business development and job growth.

 

We can connect these areas with all of the airports mentioned thru the use of high speed rail.

What is the city's next Pearl?

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area, aka The Northeast Corridor. This area reminds me of the Pearl/Broadway area looked around 10 years ago. Only time will tell if the city will follow-thru on its revitalization plan. Would be cool to have something like The Pearl outside the loop. Having Toyota Field, Morgan's Wonderland, and Ranger Creek in the area would only sweeten the deal. Submitted by Syllogism19 ...more »

Wine Garden in Park to Promote Hill Country Wines

Berlin has a wooden kiosk in one of their parks with picnic tables around it. Each month a different German winery sells their wines by the glass or the bottle at promotional prices (maybe $2-3 for a glass and $8-12 for a bottle depending on quality). Residents enjoy sitting in the park and visiting with their friends while having some wine; they are also free to bring their own picnic foods to make it a meal. It's ...more »

Airport and Mall Shuttle Bus

It would be great, cut down on traffic, and bring money back into San Antonio from outlying areas, if there was a shuttle service from Fair Oaks area or even Boerne, into the Rim/Sea World, North Star or Central Park Mall, into the airport. It would also be terrific to have a shuttle bus that stopped at the Rim or Fair Oaks/Boerne area and made a few trips into downtown on the weekends. Would provide easy access to the ...more »

Fast way to report traffic fixes

I wish there were some technologically fast way--e-mail, tweet, FB post--to report a fix for traffic screw-ups _that has recourse_--that is, returned correspondence acknowledging receipt with a personalized result about the response ("We investigated your claim, and have decided . . ." or "The person you need to contact about that is . . .") I care about good traffic flow and don't want accidents, but the many people ...more »

Probate court

1 out of 5 San Antonio citizens are 60 and over. I would like to see more public meetings on protecting elders and their families from unneeded guardianships. There are new laws passed by the state last session. Many times hospitals, nursing homes and retirement community‚Äôs directors are by passing family and referring people to court most often to cover their legal behinds. They should not be allowed to that. How ...more »
