Howdy Neighbors,

City Council has started the process to hire San Antonio's next City Manager. Erik Walsh has been proposed as the finalist for the City Manager position. Mr. Walsh was chosen from a field of 31 applicants that was narrowed down to 8 and then 2. Before a contract is finalized, he will take part in several stakeholder meetings with various groups throughout the city. Erik Walsh will be present at our next District 10 Community Meeting on February 18th to speak with our community. 

The Northeast Neighborhood Alliance will hold its next meeting on January 28th, 7 p.m. at the Tool Yard (10303 Tool Yard). Briefings will include information on the San Antonio Emergency Management Program, information from Mr. Bert Pickell on organizing walking groups, Safe 2 Save (safe driving program), and an update from my office. Northeast Neighborhood Alliance members will also be voting on candidates to fill Alliance Board positions for Vice President and Secretary.

The District 10 Office would like to attend your next HOA meeting. We would like to discuss ongoing community initiatives and resources that are available throughout San Antonio, such as neighborhood programs, current projects and public safety programs. If you would like to have the District 10 team visit your next meeting or would like useful information to distribute to your community, please email your request to District10@sanantonio.gov. Please provide a date, time, and point of contact to set up District 10 attending your next HOA meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!

As always, thank you for being active community members and leaders here in District 10, and do not hesitate to contact our office if we can be of any assistance to you.

- Clayton

Scooters: What's Being Done? 
As e-scooters and e-bicycles have become increasingly popular, the City of San Antonio is committed to striking a balance between innovative transportation options and providing safe, accessible sidewalks and streets. The City's Transportation Committee approved submitting the following amendments to the pilot program to the full City Council for a vote:
  • Placing a moratorium on the issuance of permits until the pilot program is completed, effective immediately.
  • Imposing hours of operation from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m.
  • Requiring scooters and bikes in the greater downtown area to be picked up daily by the vendor: 11:30 p.m. removal and no deployment until 5 a.m.
  • Encourage the use of designated parking zones.
  • Vehicles parked in prohibited areas may be impounded without warning. 
    • City staff, Centro and identified partners will be authorized to remove vehicles    
The amendments will be discussed and voted on at the Feb. 14 City Council meeting.
Report dockless vehicle issues on 311SA mobile app
The 311SA mobile app now allows users to report dockless vehicle parking violations. Users can take a photo of the dockless vehicle issue and upload it to the app. Issues including improper parking, unsafe riding, blocking of sidewalks and vehicles that have fallen over can be reported. 
Issues can be flagged 24/7 on the app, which is free and available for download in the  iTunes and  Google Play stores. Additionally, residents can report violations by contacting the 311 Customer Service office, which is open seven days a week, or by  contacting dockless vehicle providers directly.
Dockless vehicle survey now open on SASpeakUp.com
The City is seeking feedback from San Antonio residents on the future of dockless vehicles through a new survey. More than 4,400 people participated in the City's first dockless vehicle survey in summer 2018, and these initial results helped inform the creation of the dockless vehicle pilot program.
Visit  SASpeakUp.com to take the City's dockless vehicle survey, which is available in English and Spanish.
Data reported to 311 and collected through the survey will help inform changes to the Dockless Vehicle Ordinance.

Oversized vehicle parking within residential areas is prohibited by City Code. Violations of this prohibition continue to increase. As a response, City Council voted to approve increasing the violation amount from $35.00 to $500.00 in March 2018.
An oversized vehicle: A motor vehicle, trailer, or boat which by itself or together with other structure(s) or vehicle(s) attached to it exceeds twenty-four (24) feet in length, eight (8) feet in width or eight (8) feet in height, exclusive of accessories such as antennas, air conditioners, luggage racks, and mirrors. If an oversized vehicle is also a recreational vehicle, it may not be parked on the street in a residential district.  If it does not meet the criteria for an oversized vehicle it may be parked on the street provided that it is not being stored there. It may park on the street only for such time as is actually necessary to load and unload passengers, freight and merchandise. There is no exception for trip preparation. This rule applies 24 hours a day.



 Join us at McAllister Park
Join us at McAllister Park's Mud Trail on Friday, February 1st at 10:00 a.m. as we celebrate the dedication of our latest public art installation. The project was funded by the 2012 Bond public art drainage allocations and consists of four metal fabricated sculptural flowers that were designed by San Antonio-based artist Leticia Huerta and fabricated in San Antonio by Wanderlust Ironworks. The artist's design for "Bloom" was inspired by various native wildflowers and bicycle parts and it ranges in height between 10 and 12 feet. It functions as a public art way-finding landmark for mountain bikers and hikers along the primarily unmarked Mud Creek Trail, and each flower's stem includes metal rings that identify past floodwater levels that have been recorded in the area. Glow in the dark stones placed within the center of each flowers become luminous at night, acting as an indicator of the darkening conditions.
