PANEL TO EXPLORE TRANSPORTATION NEEDS OF SAN ANTONIO
Mayor, Leaders to Discuss the Rising Challenges

San Antonio, TX – How well is metropolitan San Antonio prepared to meet transportation needs as the area continues to grow, with 1.1 million new residents expected by 2040? To explore the issue more fully, The League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area will present a forum, “Transportation Needs of San Antonio: How are we preparing for the future?” on Monday, Oct. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the San Antonio Central Library, 600 Soledad St.

“Traffic jams, lack of light rail or other mass transit options, ongoing housing development, street repairs, etc., are all issues that were discussed in the recent city election,” says Madhu Sridhar, president of the League of Women Voters of the San Antonio Area. “The political gridlock this issue has been trapped in for years has consequences for our economy, health, environment and quality of life.”

Keynote:         Ron Nirenberg, Mayor, City of San Antonio
Moderator:     Francine Sanders Romero, Ph.D. Associate Dean, College of Public Policy, UTSA
Panelists:         Kevin Wolff, Commissioner, Bexar County, Precinct 3
Ana Sandoval, Councilwoman, District 7, San Antonio
Bill Barker, Adjunct Associate Professor in Urban and Regional Planning, UTSA
Jeff Arndt, President/CEO, VIA Metropolitan Transit

 “We need comprehensive planning, sensible solutions and leadership in execution to meet future transportation needs,” says Sridhar. “With the proactive mindset of new leadership, let us hope for some action and results.”
