San Antonio area residents: Get involved in the North Sector Plan!

Posted by:

We all owe a large debt of gratitude to Hill Country Planning Association members Charlotte Kahl, Bebe Fenstermaker, Mary Fenstermaker, Susan Beavin, Kathy Murray, Kathy Smith, Mary Bradshaw, Bill Ward, Irene Scharf, Neal Hernandez and others who held their own with developers and their lackeys for months so that the plan for northern San Antonio will not be unmitigated low quality sprawl that threatens to compromise the Edwards Aquifer.

Now, we need your help to comment on and contribute to the plan to make sure that what is incorporated into the City Master Plan reflects our shared values. Please alert your friends and family members to these upcoming open houses, where they will have a chance to view the plan and comment.

The first North Sector Open House will be held on Tuesday, June 15, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Semmes Library, 15060 Judson Road. The second Open House will be held on Saturday, June 26, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Igo Library, 13330 Kyle Seale Parkway.

You can also review the North Sector Plan at www.northsectorplan.com.

GEAA will write draft comments soon – please share your ideas or comments with us by emailing them to Annalisa@AquiferAlliance.org! This is a marvelous opportunity to paint a picture of the future of the area that provides us all with clean water. We hope you will weigh in through GEAA and with comments from your respective organizations.


Celebrate with GEAA!
