District 10 Update March 13, 2018

District 10 Newsflash
Brought to you by Clayton Perry, District 10

March 13, 2018

Howdy Neighbors, 

The Northeast Neighborhood Alliance will be meeting next Monday, March 19th at the Tool Yard (10303 Tool Yard)  at 7 PM. Primary Election runoff candidates will be introduced on Monday. As many of you know, Former Councilman Mike Gallagher runs a tight ship, so I recommend arriving early if you'd like to meet with election runoff candidates. This meeting will serve as a public meeting to discuss the proposed road closure at Old O'Connor Road and Lookout Road. A flyer with more details on the proposed closure can be found below. Also on the agenda for the evening: an update from Spurs Sports and Entertainment and an update from our office in regards to the District. 

We'll be revealing our 2018 Fiesta medal soon, so keep an eye out for our reveal on our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts. Be sure to mark your calendars for April 10th! We'll be bringing all of our favorite aspects of Fiesta (free food, entertainment, and medals) and information from SA MetroHealth, TCI, SASpeakUp, SAPD, SAFD, SAWS, and CPS to District 10. Time and location information can be found on a flyer below.

As always, thank you for being active community members and leaders here in District 10, and do not hesitate to contact our office if we can be of any assistance to you. 

- Clayton

Open Surveys

District 10 Surveys

Here in District 10, we're already looking "down the road" for repairs and upgrades. We've been hard at work reviewing and tweaking the 2018 street repair schedule, but we are always on the lookout for the big projects that can truly transform District 10. We've started a running list of future bond projects for consideration, but we need your help in guiding us to what District 10 needs most. Please help us determine what your priorities are for the future 2022- 2027 Bond by completing this survey. It's not too early for us to start this process at our level. 

We'd like to gauge our neighbors on their desire for a homestead tax exemption, for them to assign a monetary value to what they consider relief, and what services they are OK with being reduced in the City Budget in order to receive a homestead exemption. If a resident is not willing to cut services in order to receive a tax break, that's valuable information. If a resident considers an extra $100 in tax reduction a real relief, that's also valuable information. The results of this survey will help guide our office as we push forward with tax relief options for our residents. Please participate in our survey, here.

Citywide Surveys

SA Climate Ready is a City initiative aiming to improve the quality of life of all residents of San Antonio and make the city and its people better prepared to face expected changes in climate. This initiative will explore both mitigation strategies, aiming to reduce or prevent the emission of GHGs, and adaptation strategies aiming to prepare the community, municipal government operations, and other key sectors for the anticipated impacts of climate change. An essential part of this process is to engage our community to better understand the collective vision and priorities of our citizens. This helps ensure that the Climate Action and Adaptation Plan will serve to benefit all San Antonians. The Office of Sustainability has created a survey focused on plan vision and priorities.

Public Meeting to Discuss Proposed Road Closure at Old O'Connor Railroad Bridge Underpass and Lookout Road

Date: Monday, March 19th at 7 PM

Location: The Tool Yard (Northeast Service Station) 10303 Tool Yard

Freight trucks cut across this path ignoring warning signs, and strike the active railroad bridge overhead. Union Pacific Railroad Company reports more than ten such strikes at this location since 2010, all of which result in costly delays to their operation, and any of which could result in much more serious consequences such as train derailments.

Additionally, the underpass has become an illegal dumping ground and an eye-sore for the community. Longstanding drainage problems make the underpass impassable and even dangerous during rain events.
We hope you will join us on Monday, March 19th at the Tool Yard to discuss this issue.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the District 10 Field Office at 210-207-0999.

Redland Road Construction is Complete

Some of you know that I have taken a special interest in ensuring that members of the disabled community are taken into account by the City of San Antonio. After Harvey, I requested the City to ensure that our emergency management plans included their feedback and consideration. I'm so pleased that the City is paying attention - above is the announcement of a schedule of community meetings with the Disability Access Office and Transportation and Capital Improvements to gather feedback on what can be improved or implemented. I highly encourage you share this information with your neighborhoods to ensure that everyone knows about this set of meetings. For more information, click here.
