Sonterra POA Annual Meeting Recap

A new fountain, street repairs in the Fairways, a Huebner Road modification and the completion of the Vistas...its all been a very productive year for the Sonterra POA Board.  The Annual Meeting of the Sonterra Property Owners Association Board of Directors met on Wednesday night at 7pm at the Club of Sonterra.   The board started its fiscal year with four major projects on the table.   The first project  was the Fairways street repairs.  After several delays over the past few months,  the board was happy to report that this project was completed this year and the streets in the Fairways look fantastic.

Spring Cleaning, it's a good thing

Spring is in the air!  The cold is gone and nice warm days, ok hot days, are ahead. Time to get those big 'ol sweaters and clothes that don't fit out of the closet to make room for some nice new summer outfits!  Instead of taking those clothes to the usual places, why not help clothe some very special children with special needs?  Respite Care of San Antonio needs our help.

Respite Care of San Antonio provides services to enhance the stability and the nurturing opportunities of families caring for a loved one with a developmental disability. It is a place of "respite" for families that need full time nursing care for their child, but also just need a couple of hours to go shopping or for a much needed get away weekend. 

Flashing Traffic Signals on US 281 at Overlook Parkway

SAN ANTONIO * The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has begun flashing the new traffic signals on US 281 at Overlook Parkway to notify motorists in preparation for full activation in one week.  The traffic signals will be fully operational beginning Wednesday, March 28, 2007.  The flashing period is very important for safety reasons so that motorists traveling on US 281 can get used to seeing these signals everyday and so they can be better prepared to stop when the signals are activated. 

The $457,000 project that began November 1, 2006 was one of three locations for the placement of new traffic signals. The other locations included US 281 at Marshall Road and FM 306 (in Comal County).

MORATORIUM BILL GETS VETO-PROOF

Bill to abolish Transportation Commission heard today. Keep the calls coming....
Action item: Call your reps to sign on to HB 154

If you're tired of TxDOT doing what it wants in spite of the massive public outcry, then let's get behind this bill! The House Transportation Committee has heard these two outstanding bills and we want them to pass out of committee. If ordinary people get involved, these can become law!

Here are the bills:
HB 154 - (author Pickett) - Relating to the abolition of the Texas Transportation Commission and the creation of a commissioner of transportation as an elected statutory state officer. Hooray, this one is KEY to making TxDOT accountable to WE THE PEOPLE!
