General Meetings

Tuesday, February 17th: Learn about Commuter Rail between San Antonio & Austin

Joe Black, Rail Manager of the Lone Star Rail District, will provide an update on progress of the LSTAR Commuter Rail between SA and Austin. It will utilize the Union Pacific track and make stops in San Marcos and New Braunfels. Progress is being made in Austin to move the project forward. San Antonio needs to become aware of this new future commuter service from San Antonio to Austin.

Because of a fee increase, we will no longer meet at the Witte Museum. Our new location is EcoCentro, located at San Antonio College, 1802 North Main Avenue at the northeast corner with Locust Street.

Times, a map, and speaker bios are on our Events page.

Environmental Highlights - State & Local

SAWS Vista Ridge Pipeline Deal

City Council approved SAWS' $3.4 billion Vista Ridge Pipeline contract on October 30th. But we remain committed to working on this issue so we can make sure the deal is equitable to ratepayers and environmentally sound.

Visit our Clearinghouse for Vista Ridge Information webpage, where you can find news articles about the deal, comments and analyses about the proposal, and technical studies.
