Meeting was held at the Christian Family Baptist Church and was called to order at 7:30 PM by President Frank Partee.
Presentations by various government entities were made first.
Tony Vasquez, Bexar County Public Works Division Chief, explained that a site analysis of our subdivision was done. As a result of this study, there will be a four way stop installed at Silver Maple and Bois D’Arc. Construction starts the end of the month. A sign that flashes your car speed will be installed sometime after that on Silver Maple as you turn into the subdivision from Potranco Rd. Also, American Lotus is being cut through to Grosenbacher which should relieve some of the traffic coming into the subdivision on Yellow Birch. Any requests for a capital improvement project for sidewalks will need to be sent through the commissioner’s office but would be a lower priority due to other major issues in the county. Enforcement of speed limits, stop signs, etc must be addressed with the Sheriff’s department.
State Representative Rick Galindo spoke next. He is currently serving on the committees for Public Education, Mental Health, and GTO (Government Transparency). He lives in Amhurst and is aware of the problems out here and we are one of the fastest growing areas in the state. If you have any concerns, contact his office at 210-922-1336. He advised us of an upcoming Annexation Town Hall Meeting on Thursday, Jan 28. 2016, 7 PM at Hoffman Elementary Cafeteria.
TXDOT was represented by Christine Longoria and Marco Galindo. They provided us with handouts on the major highway projects in our area -410/151 Interchange, 410/90 Interchange, and Loop 1604 expansions from Culebra to Hwy 90.
Bridell Miers spoke on Bexar County Capital Projects which includes expansion of Potranco Rd. Waiting on TXDOT approval of contract, then it goes to Commisioner’s Court and construction to start in March, 2016.
Gabirel Lara, Coolcrest resident, is concerned about the length of time the county takes to get things done and is considering running as an independent for Commissioner Precinct 1.

Sharon will get with the property owner of the lot across from Tink A Taco. Kids are driving and spinning out in there and slinging mud onto Silver Maple.
House at corner of Silver Maple and Grapevine has been vacant a long time. The yard was just recently mowed but parts of the roof have blown off. Complaints have been made to the county.
