FY2016 COSA Budget

Complete Planned (2013-14) Howard W. Peak Greenway Trail Ring

COSA, SARA and downtown boosters appear to have lost sight of the plan for a connected ring of multi-use (hike and bike) trail throughout much of San Antonio and linking with downtown along several routes including the Westside Creeks Alazan and Martinez - with planned trail extensions and connections promoted in local media as well as at various meetings and conferences and supported by Bexar County voters (as sales... 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.

Decriminalize marijuana

Marijuana laws disproportionately affect those in poverty, even though marijuana usage rates are consistent throughout all classes of society. Let's stop wasting taxpayer's money arresting people that aren't hurting anyone.

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 »

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 »
