Councilman Kevin Wolff Responds to SAHA's Public Housing Plan

One of the greatest services we provide our children is their education. Without adequate funding, we limit their growth and development. Abating school taxes which are needed for new school construction will only exacerbate this problem. Northeast Independent School District, which has been forced to cap some of its schools north of Loop 1604, already loses $3.7 million dollars annually in abatements for tax-free housing. The proposed tax-free housing project in District 9 will result in further decreases in school tax funding in an area that is in dire need of more schools.

Fire Shuts Down Hwy 281 North & South

Heavy smoke from a large warehouse fire at Parish & Co. caused the closure of Hwy 281 North at Bulverde Rd. and Hwy 281 South at Borgfeld.  The fire began around 3:45 this morning and engulfed  the 45,000 square foot  structure.  Water hoses stretched across the highway, and low visibility contributed to the road closures.  This has caused major traffic delays for the morning traffic, so consider using alternate routes to enter or exit the city.  The roads will be reopened at 9:00 a.m.

FOLLOW UP:  According to Tx DOT, the roads were reopened today at approximately 1:00.  The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

San Antonio Housing Authority Responds to Councilman Wolff

The San Antonio Housing Authority understands and appreciates the sentiments expressed in Councilman Wolff's statement.

The San Antonio Housing Authority is forging unprecedented partnerships, in both the public and private sectors, to transform traditional low-income housing "projects" into mixed-income "communities."  In all of these communities, including those proposed in the Stone Oak area, only a small portion of the homes will be occupied by low-income families and seniors. The remainder will be the same individuals and families that live there today.
