Keep B-Cycle in San Antonio

The City should step up and see if we can find some public funds to keep B-Cycle in San Antoni. Like Uber and Lyft, I think B-Cycle is an important service in the city that tourists and locals both enjoy.

 

I don't think the City should fully fund them, but some support is warranted.

 

Interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this, too!

Install public toilets at Travis Park

Travis Park is a major transfer point for VIA and now site of lunchtime City food truck vending and numerous (hundreds?) of public events each year. Many of the events require the hiring and transport of port-a-potties to the park. Permanent toilets at Travis Park would reduce the cost of events as well as support public transport riders and day-to-day users of the park. Main Plaza provides one example of the type of ...more »

Traffic barricades

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 »

Mayoral Campaign

Any thoughts on the race? Adkisson seems like a long shot. Taylor, Van De Putte, and Villarreal - in my opinion - are the candidates with a best shot. I'm voting Villarreal. Haven't really seen anything form Taylor as interim-mayor to make me believe in her. She was pretty ineffective as a council member and hasn't actually done much as interim-mayor. I don't like Van De Putte deciding to jump into the campaign after ...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 »

More development into downtown

I hate the downtown SA is viewed as a tourist destination by most natives. We have seen incredible growth in the last 5 years and I want to see more.

 

The city should be investing as much as they can to build downtown. A great downtown will put San Antonio on the map and make the entire SA community better.

What is the city's next Pearl?

Improvements to medical center surroundings

The Pearl, probably the most exciting part of San Antonio right now, offers a good blend of drawing locals to a variety of shops and restaurants as well as tourists who stay in close proximity (downtown). However (here me out), the medical center and UTHSCSA offer an environment unmatched by most parts of the city. With a national draw, UTHSCSA hosts visiting scholars, seminars, MD and PhD students from all across the ...more »
