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.
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.
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.
Why are we short changing the people who protect our community and keep us safe? These people deserve every cent they asked for.
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 »
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 »
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.
Thought exercise here... If you had $1000 of City funds to allocate towards any goals that you value, what would they be? Feel free to include goals that you specifically would allocate $0 towards.

Whenever there is an event at the Alamodome -- which is frequently -- traffic barricades are put up that block the intersections at Cesar Chavez and Labor Street, Indianola Street, and the alley at Hemisview Apartments. Additionally, "no parking" signs are plastered along every side street in the area. Residents in this neighborhood have to detour all the way around these barricades, making access to highways 281 and ...more »

VIA Metropolitan Transit (VIA) plans to change fares in 2016, including reducing the cost of a full fare day pass from $4 to $2.75 ($1.35 discounted) but raising the cost of other fares and passes. See: http://www.viainfo.net/Communication/ViewArticle.aspx?ArticleId=2589 Unlike increasing fares, reducing VIA fares is not governed by any rules. VIA picking $2.75 ($1.35 discounted) for a day pass is an odd choice for ...more »
Media reports suggest that San Antonio's VIA Metropolitan Transit (VIA) is considering upgrading its 40-foot bus fleet to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) vehicles -- to be fueled by CPS Energy natural gas infrastructure, including a proposed new pipeline from the Eagle Ford.

The riverwalk. We need to stop making it this cheesy tourist trap and actually make it a cool place to go.

San Antonio - like the state of Texas - has a persistent and dire low voter turnout problem.. Specifically, a low youth voter turnout problem (most voters in San Antonio are over 50). Roughly 24% of all San Antonio residents are under 18 years old. Voter turnout for municipal elections in San Antonio has remained below 18% since 1997 - dropping to 7% in 2011. To help address low overall and youth voter turnout and encourage ...more »
This may be better dealt with at the state level, but I believe all drivers should turn on their headlights when it is raining outside. Rainy conditions can be dangerous and visibility is often poor. More importantly, your headlights help other drivers see you better. A law may not be necessary but education from the city or state would certainly encourage drivers to turn the headlights on and make the roads safer for ...more »
