Howdy Neighbors, 

Happy Halloween, folks! Halloween  is a fantastic opportunity to get out and meet your neighbors while getting some exercise. I want to encourage y'all to stay safe and use your best judgement while Trick-or-Treating.  Don't allow your child to Trick-or-Treat alone and please wear reflective clothing to ensure you're being seen by motor vehicles. Parents and grandparents, Metro Health encourages you to make sure your child or grandchild has a healthy meal before Trick-or-Treating and to use a smaller bag for collecting candy. 

Early voting ends on Friday, November 2nd. The election will take place on Tuesday, November 6th. If you have any questions about the three propositions on the ballot, please visit the City's website. Check your county election website for voting information and polling locations.

The City of San Antonio's Neighborhood and Housing Services Department (NHSD) is developing a new policy to tackle displacement and eviction causes. As part of the departments' outreach endeavors for this policy, they would love to hear from our neighbors on the issues that impact the lives of those suffering from/or at-rick of displacement to help us allocate the 2019 FY Risk-Mitigation Fund. The new policy is intended to combine a preemptive and re-housing approaches to end displacement and provide a safe and stable housing for families and individuals across the City.  Help San Antonio refine how we as a city address the sudden loss of housing by taking the survey here.

The Northeast Neighborhood Alliance Meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 19th at 7:00 PM at the  Tool Yard . As a reminder, District 10 hosts a Community Meeting on the third Monday of every even month, unless otherwise stated. The Northeast Neighborhood Alliance hosts meetings on the third Monday of every odd month, unless otherwise stated.

Upcoming Community Meetings

 Northeast Neighborhood Alliance Meeting

November 19th, 2018 - 10303 Tool Yard


Staff Spotlight

The City of San Antonio and Council District 10 team packed their bags and attended the annual conference of Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association held in Galveston, TX October 17-19th. City staffers Jacob Floyd, Planning Coordinator, and Heather Yost, Sr. Planner (both District 10 residents!) and District 10 staffer Rebecca Podowski, Sr. Policy Advisor, led a breakout session on the successes and lessons learned from the first five years of the Northeast Corridor Revitalization Initiative (NEC).
The NEC, started back in 2014, is a strategic plan outlining the goals for the Perrin Beitel-Nacogdoches corridor. Their presentation included an overview of the different funding mechanisms now in place to aide in business development and corridor enhancements, public safety initiatives, and the various city policies originating from the revitalization efforts. We congratulate Jacob, Heather, and Rebecca on their opportunity to present to representatives from other Texas cities, and hope to see our model replicated in other corridors across Texas.

Johnson High School Safe Driving Event

Last week, I attended Johnson High School's Safe Driving Event. It was a fantastic way to engage teenagers while informing them of the dangers of drinking and operating a vehicle. Take a look at the video above to see me attempt to drive while wearing "beer goggles" - needless to say, it did not go well. Remember folks: Drink. Drive. Go to jail. 

Education Nights at The Public are an exclusive performance for youth, ages 12-18, to attend a production in the Russell Hill Rogers Theater at The San Pedro Playhouse. These performances provide access to educational learning experiences in the creative arts and live theater. Also, performances foster positive youth development and individual personal growth through increased self-expression, social engagement and exposure to potential career opportunities. Education nights are made possible through the generosity of foundations and corporations.
