Excess rainwater released from 3 mile long, 24 foot diameter deep tunnel @ LoneStar
 
02:28
5/27/13: The deep tunnel serves as a backup water supply to keep the V E R Y tourist friendly San Antonio River, channel and Riverwalk areas full of gently flowing water - when there's too much, as with the 11 inches of rain we got over this past weekend, it is released to eventually flow into the Gulfs of San Antonio and Mexico. During dry spells the flowage is reversed so that water comes out at the inlet to keep the river fresh and flowing. Damn sensible system for the desert country.

Sheriff-Elect Planning Changes
 
01:36
By: Yami VirginSheriff-Elect Susan Pamerleau, who was elected last month, announced today part of her command staff. Pamerleau also stated that she will be looking for a new certified jail administrator.  Because the jail has sent Bexar county inmates to other facilities Pamerleau says it will be one of her top priorities.Due to safety issues, classification of inmates is extremely important and part of the reason prisoners can't just be put together in one pod. Pamerleau says she has also started conversations with county leaders to get patrol officers out on the streets quicker. Right now officers must check in for roll call at a substation located in the deep south side.Those same officers must then drive as far as 55 minutes to the areas assigned to them. This is believed to have caused some of the problems with response times. Pamerleau will be sworn in at midnight on December 31st.Also sworn in will be the first female Deputy Chief to rise through the ranks at the county.  Cpt. Tammy Burr will be in-charge of judicial and court services. You may be familiar with Cpt. Burr who comes out on Fox San Antonio's "On The Run" segment ever week.

County Approves Espada Rd. Buyout Program
 
01:46
By: Jennifer SaucedoSell or stay?That's the decision dozens of Espada Road residents are facing.On Tuesday, Bexar County commissioners approved a $5.5 million project to assist the flood residents.Homeowners have the option of selling their property to the county or staying.However, if they stay, they'll have to rebuild to flood standards.Many residents say they don't want to leave, but staying is too expensive.I'd have to get an elevator for my mom to get inside her house... how sweet is that? said Pearl De La Pena. They want you to build eight feet high.San Antonio River Authority leaders say the county is doing its best to help.Our hearts go out to the neighborhood. It's a devastating situation to have flooding like this but we're trying to be proactive, said Suzanne Scott, with SARA.The money commissioners approved will also pay for appraisals, engineers and environmental assessments.The first four appraisals are expected to be ready by next week.

KENS-TV news opens
 
26:01
The following video features various news and talent opens from KENS-TV, San Antonio's CBS affiliate, from c. 1979 to present. As many of the older opens imply, KENS historically was the market's top-rated news station, especially when it was locally owned by Harte-Hanks Communications (who later exited mass media to focus on its direct marketing business). However, under Belo (who bought the station from Harte-Hanks in 1998) and subseuqently Tegna ownership, the station has slipped down to a still strong and competitive second. KENS has used the "Eyewitness News" brand since circa 1970, with a 1998 modification to include the station's branding "KENS 5" (always pronounced as a word). Here's what you can see in this video: (0:04-1:22) "Eyewitness News" 5pm and 10pm intros (1979-1981) (1:22-1:43) "Eyewitness News" intro (1981-1983) (1:43-2:19) "Eyewitness News" intros (1983-1987) (2:19-2:36) "Special Report" intro (c. 1985) (2:36-2:53) "South Texas Sunrise" intro (c. 1986) (2:53-3:06) "Eyewitness News" intro (1987-1990) (3:06-3:23) "Eyewitness News" intro (1990-1994) (3:23-5:28) "Eyewitness News" and "South Texas Sunrise" intros (1994-1995) (5:28-7:49) "Eyewitness News" intros (1995-1998) (7:49-10:47) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros and talent rejoins (1998-2002) (10:47-11:31) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" 6pm intro and 12pm talent rejoin (2002-2004) --- MISSING: KENS EWN intros (2004-2007 featuring "Counterpoint"; I dug and dug all over but I only found clips of broadcasts without the opens...) --- (11:31-12:03) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros and rejoin (2007-2008) (12:03-14:15) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" HD intros (2008-2012) (14:15-15:11) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros (2012-2014) (15:11-17:09) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros (2014-February 2017) (17:09-19:05) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros (February 2017-February 2018) (19:05-24:04) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros (February 2018-July 2018) (24:04-25:50) "KENS 5 Eyewitness News" intros (July 2018-present; difference from the first set includes different cuts of their "C.

INSANE! Cat 4 Hurricane Harvey makes landfall! U MUST SEE 8 DAY PROJECTION
 
08:50
If you want to gauge this storm properly to evacuate please watch the projected path of this Storm which is projected to be a Cat 2 Hurricane OVER LAND for a week. The storm has made landfall over Rockport Texas. This is the craziest storm I have ever seen. Please evacuate if you can. God bless everyone, T https://www.paypal.me/THORnews @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/torrential-rain-to-evolve-into-flooding-disaster-as-hurricane-harvey-moves-inland/70002548 s Harvey continues to gather strength and approach Texas, the hurricane is poised to stall and unleash life-threatening and disastrous flooding into next week. Harvey is projected make landfall along the Texas coast as a Category 3 hurricane on San Jose Island or Matagorda Island, between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, Texas, late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Incidents of flooding and power outages will increase through Friday night and this weekend. Harvey will have major impact in terms of dangerous surf, beach erosion, coastal flooding and damaging winds. However, Harvey is likely to be remembered for excessive rainfall and days of flooding and gusty winds well after landfall. The storm strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane early Friday morning, then to a Category 3 hurricane on Friday afternoon. The last hurricane to make landfall in Texas was Ike as a Category 2 on Sept. 13, 2008. Wilma, in 2005, was the last major hurricane to make landfall in the southern U.S. A state of disaster was declared for 30 counties in Texas in advance of Harvey by Gov. Greg Abbott. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a statewide state of emergency on Thursday. The decreasing forward speed of the storm will lead to long-duration rainfall and gusty winds. Harvey will cause much worse damage from flooding and wind than would normally occur from a swift moving storm of equal magnitude. "Impacts from Harvey will be tremendous in terms of displacement of people, property and economic loss and travel and freight disruptions," according to AccuWeather Vice President of Forecasting and Graphics Operations Marshall Moss. Extreme impacts are likely from Corpus Christi to Houston and Beaumont, Texas, and perhaps as far to the east as Lake Charles, Louisiana. Moderate impacts may extend as far inland as San Antonio and Austin, Texas. Isolated impacts are likely as far to the south as Brownsville, Texas. Some communities could be under water for days The event may be nothing short of a flooding disaster. "Since Harvey is forecast to stall, we expect 10-20 inches of rain over a large part of southern and eastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana into early next week," At the local level from 2 to 3 feet of rain may fall. This amount of rain will lead to widespread flooding of streets, highways, bayous, streams and major rivers. Because of the flat terrain, some areas along the major rivers and bayous may remain flooded well after Harvey weakens or crawls away later next week. Soon after the storm begins, roads in low-lying areas may become flooded. For those in flood-prone areas, now is the time to gather personal belongings. Prolonged gusty winds to topple trees, lead to power outages Since there is the potential for Harvey to stall close to the coast, the storm may retain significant strength for an extended period of time. "If Harvey remains reasonably close to the coast, it could be classified as a tropical storm through the weekend," Kottlowski said. "In addition to ongoing heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts and saturated ground will likely cause widespread fallen trees," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll. From Friday night to Saturday, gusts near and northeast of the center of landfall will range between 80 and 120 mph. "As Harvey makes landfall, the risk of tornadoes will be greatest near and northeast of the center," Kottlowski said. "Once Harvey is inland, isolated tornadoes could occur throughout the circulation of the storm." Harvey to bring dangerous conditions, cause damage at the coast Seas and surf along the western Gulf coast will build well ahead of Harvey's arrival. How strong Harvey becomes prior to landfall will determine the initial magnitude of inundation and damage along the coast. "The combination of storm surge and wave action will bring a total inundation of 6-12 feet in coastal areas and bays with the greatest inundation north of the center of landfall," Kottlowski said. Some of the worst coastal inundation on the storm's front side may occur along Lavaca Bay, Matagorda Bay, San Antonio Bay, Copano Bay and Aransas Bay, Texas. South of the storm track, winds blowing offshore may cause flooding on the eastern part of Laguna Madre, on Padre Island, Texas.

Man battles city to keep his home
 
04:51
YOUR DESCRIPTION HAS REACHED THE LIMIT OF CHARACTERS ALLOWED AND WAS CUT. By Stacey Cameron SAN ANTONIO - At six feet eight inches tall, Kenneth Parker is a tall man. So you might not figure him as a David like character battling Goliath. But that is the role that Parker finds himself playing when it comes to his battle with the City of San Antonio. For more than thirty years Parker has lived at his home on Barbra Drive. He's spent thousands remodeling and landscaping the place. And in a couple of years Parker says he planned to retire and live out his days in a house he calls his dream home. "I've just about finished doing everything that I want to do to the house for my retirement so I can live out my life in pleasure," said Parker. But several months ago Parker learned the City's Department of Transportation and Capitol Improvements had different plans. The city is working to buy his home and level it so work can begin on a drainage and flood control construction project in his neighborhood. "I don't want to lose my house," Parker says. "I've planted all the Oak trees that shade my house. They were one gallon trees when I planted them. They're fifty foot tall now." "We're not singling him out," said Art Reinhardt, Assistant Director of Transportation and Capitol Improvements. "We're looking at the bigger picture. The entire community." According to Reinhardt, the City of San Antonio is actually planning on purchasing thirty-six homes. Those homes will be removed in order to build an open earth and grass channel that will replace a concrete flood channel that currently runs behind Parker's home. The project is designed to help prevent flooding, like one that hit San Antonio in the spring of 2013. That storm washed out streets and about twenty homes in Parker's neighborhood. "So this is the first step in a four phase, forty million dollar project that needs to happen for this area," says Reinhardt. Parker says that would be fine if his home was in the flood plain. But it is not. "The 250 year flood we has a year ago in May, the water didn't even cross my fence line," said Parker. "I think the city should be able to find another way to deal with a 250 year flood or 100 year flood than to displace 36 families from their homes." At one point, when the Bexar County was in charge of the project there was another plain to alleviate future flooding. But Reinhardt says it called for a more elaborate underground concrete channel. While it would save some homes, it would also cost taxpayers about 8 million dollars more to build. "Limited funding that we have, we look to make the most bang for the buck," Reinhardt said. So that means going with the open earth channel and clearing out a big part of Parker's neighborhood. But first the city has to convince homeowner to sell. In an effort to avoid using the government's power of eminent domain, the city is offering to buy the homes, pay for temporary housing and help locate replacement residences for everyone impacted. "We've talked to about 35 of the 36 property owners," says Reinhardt. "And a couple were undecided, and a couple were were against it, but about 30 were interested in the buyout." Parker is against the buyout, saying for he plans to fight City Hall because a new house simply will not offer all the amenities he enjoys at his current home. "It won't be landscaped,", Parker said. "They are going to have a hard time finding a point-six-three acre lot. Which I enjoy having a big lot." "We want to do it on a voluntary basis. That's why we are offering a good compensation package," says

Harvey to be a Hurricane at TX Landfall & bring Catastrophic Rain to Texas & Louisiana
 
04:11
Some models have shown this anti-cyclone stationary storm to bring up to 50 inches of rain to some parts of the Gulf Coast. It's expected to strengthen to a Hurricane and then remain semi-stationary while dropping scary amounts of rain over a 5-7 day period. Stay tuned. God bless everyone, T https://www.paypal.me/THORnews @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo Harvey to threaten Texas, Louisiana with major flooding Depending on the track and speed of Harvey, enough rain may fall on portions of Texas and Louisiana to bring the risk of major flooding from Friday to early next week. Through Friday, Harvey will travel over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. Harvey regained tropical depression status on Wednesday midday and is expected to become a tropical storm. The system has the potential to become a hurricane before making landfall somewhere along the Texas coast late Friday or Friday night. There is some uncertainty about the exact point of landfall at this time as a non-tropical system may block Harvey's path as it nears the coast. Well ahead of Harvey's arrival, rip currents along the western and central Gulf coast will increase in number and strength. Whether Harvey makes landfall as a strong tropical storm or a Category 1 hurricane may not make a huge difference in terms of impact. While increasing winds, building seas and rough surf are not to be taken lightly prior to Harvey making landfall, the main threat to lives and property from Harvey will be from flooding. The potential for major flooding exists along much of the Texas coast to portions of central and northeastern Texas. Depending on Harvey's exact track, flooding is possible in portions of Louisiana as well. Preparations for flooding and displaced people are warranted at this time. There is the potential for Harvey to slow and stall over Texas or right along the northwestern Gulf coast. If Harvey stalls, between 10 and 20 inches of rain could lead to a flooding disaster. "There is the potential for significant flooding in the region, even if Harvey remains weak," according to AccuWeather Hurricane Expert Dan Kottlowski. Some cities, such as Houston, may not be able handle a moderate amount of rain in a short period of time without some urban flooding problems. The concern would be for not only flash, urban and coastal flooding, but also major river flooding. Should Harvey venture ashore along the upper Texas coast, there may be less of a flooding threat for the lower Rio Grande Valley that encompasses part of South Texas and northeastern Mexico. A storm that tracks farther north is also likely to be stronger and produce more wind impacts because it has more time to spend over the warm waters of the western Gulf of Mexico. "In addition to flooding and rough surf, the rotation around Harvey may also produce short-lived tornadoes to the north and east of the center of the storm," Kottlowski said. A reasonable amount of rain, on the order of 2-4 inches (50-100 mm), would be beneficial from an agricultural standpoint. This amount of rain can occur if Harvey remains poorly organized and keeps moving along into the south-central United States. While rainfall has been close to average near the Texas coast, portions of the lower Rio Grande Valley have received less than 25 percent of their average rainfall since June 1. Rainfall from Houston to Corpus Christi and San Antonio, Texas, has averaged between 50 and 60 percent of normal since the start of June. Late this week and this weekend, motorists should be prepared for delays and possible road closures. Beachgoers may have to postpone activities. How far inland drenching rain spreads will depend on how quickly Harvey weakens as well as on the path of the system. During next week, there is the risk of torrential rainfall to spread eastward and northeastward over the South Central states. As a result, all interests from northeastern Mexico to the western and central Gulf coast states should monitor the progress of Harvey

Harvey is now a Category 4 Hurricane! 130 mh winds & 60" rain possible
 
06:43
Hurricane Harvey has intensified to a Cat 4 storm & I wouldn't be surprised if we see it upgraded to Cat 5 at midnight Texas landfall with the nightly pulse. This is not just a major landfalling hurricane this is also a week long mega rainfall event. Please evacuate if you can. God bless everyone, T https://www.paypal.me/THORnews @newTHOR on twitter https://www.facebook.com/thornewsgo https://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/torrential-rain-to-evolve-into-flooding-disaster-as-hurricane-harvey-moves-inland/70002548 s Harvey continues to gather strength and approach Texas, the hurricane is poised to stall and unleash life-threatening and disastrous flooding into next week. Harvey is projected make landfall along the Texas coast as a Category 3 hurricane on San Jose Island or Matagorda Island, between Port Aransas and Port O'Connor, Texas, late Friday night into early Saturday morning. Incidents of flooding and power outages will increase through Friday night and this weekend. Harvey will have major impact in terms of dangerous surf, beach erosion, coastal flooding and damaging winds. However, Harvey is likely to be remembered for excessive rainfall and days of flooding and gusty winds well after landfall. The storm strengthened to a Category 2 hurricane early Friday morning, then to a Category 3 hurricane on Friday afternoon. The last hurricane to make landfall in Texas was Ike as a Category 2 on Sept. 13, 2008. Wilma, in 2005, was the last major hurricane to make landfall in the southern U.S. A state of disaster was declared for 30 counties in Texas in advance of Harvey by Gov. Greg Abbott. Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards declared a statewide state of emergency on Thursday. The decreasing forward speed of the storm will lead to long-duration rainfall and gusty winds. Harvey will cause much worse damage from flooding and wind than would normally occur from a swift moving storm of equal magnitude. "Impacts from Harvey will be tremendous in terms of displacement of people, property and economic loss and travel and freight disruptions," according to AccuWeather Vice President of Forecasting and Graphics Operations Marshall Moss. Extreme impacts are likely from Corpus Christi to Houston and Beaumont, Texas, and perhaps as far to the east as Lake Charles, Louisiana. Moderate impacts may extend as far inland as San Antonio and Austin, Texas. Isolated impacts are likely as far to the south as Brownsville, Texas. Some communities could be under water for days The event may be nothing short of a flooding disaster. "Since Harvey is forecast to stall, we expect 10-20 inches of rain over a large part of southern and eastern Texas and southwestern Louisiana into early next week," At the local level from 2 to 3 feet of rain may fall. This amount of rain will lead to widespread flooding of streets, highways, bayous, streams and major rivers. Because of the flat terrain, some areas along the major rivers and bayous may remain flooded well after Harvey weakens or crawls away later next week. Soon after the storm begins, roads in low-lying areas may become flooded. For those in flood-prone areas, now is the time to gather personal belongings. Prolonged gusty winds to topple trees, lead to power outages Since there is the potential for Harvey to stall close to the coast, the storm may retain significant strength for an extended period of time. "If Harvey remains reasonably close to the coast, it could be classified as a tropical storm through the weekend," Kottlowski said. "In addition to ongoing heavy rainfall, strong wind gusts and saturated ground will likely cause widespread fallen trees," according to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Mike Doll. From Friday night to Saturday, gusts near and northeast of the center of landfall will range between 80 and 120 mph. "As Harvey makes landfall, the risk of tornadoes will be greatest near and northeast of the center," Kottlowski said. "Once Harvey is inland, isolated tornadoes could occur throughout the circulation of the storm." Harvey to bring dangerous conditions, cause damage at the coast Seas and surf along the western Gulf coast will build well ahead of Harvey's arrival. How strong Harvey becomes prior to landfall will determine the initial magnitude of inundation and damage along the coast. "The combination of storm surge and wave action will bring a total inundation of 6-12 feet in coastal areas and bays with the greatest inundation north of the center of landfall," Kottlowski said. Some of the worst coastal inundation on the storm's front side may occur along Lavaca Bay, Matagorda Bay, San Antonio Bay, Copano Bay and Aransas Bay, Texas. South of the storm track, winds blowing offshore may cause flooding on the eastern part of Laguna Madre, on Padre Island, Texas.

Neighbors Concerned about Camelot II Trash Program
 
02:33
By: Erin NicholsFox San Antonio BEXAR COUNTY, TEXAS -- Families in the Camelot II neighborhood on the northeast side of Bexar County aren't so sure the county's plan to fix their trash problem is going to work. Late last month Bexar County approved a pilot program concerning Camelot II with the city of San Antonio that would make trash pickup mandatory. Currently residents must pay for private trash pick-up, but out of the 600 residents who live there, only about 200 residents have the service. The pilot program starts November 30 and would cost residents about $27 a month. Even though that's a blessing to the people out there, they still have a lot of questions for the city about how it's going to work. Residents told Fox San Antonio there is a lot of misinformation about the program circulating through the neighborhood. "They're a lot of people out here who can't read," said resident Barbara Clanton. "There are a lot of people out here who are elderly and can hardly see anymore. The city needs to do a better job of informing." The city says it will hold several community meetings over the next few weeks to inform residents about the program. The first meeting will be Saturday, November 7 from 9am ‚" 11am at Montgomery Elementary School. Residents can also call 207.6428.

Driving on Interstate 10 through Houston to Columbus, Texas
 
01:44:18
When constructed during the 1960s, the I-10 Katy from Houston, known as the Katy Freeway, was built with six to eight lanes wide barring side lanes, being modest by Houston standards because existing traffic demand to the farming area of West Houston was relatively low. As the population and economic activity increased in the area vehicular traffic increased, reaching an annual average daily traffic (AADT) of 238,000 vehicles just west of the West Loop in 2001.[6] In 2000 increased traffic levels and congestion led to plans being approved for widening of the freeway to 16 lanes with a capacity for 200,000 cars per day. An old railway running along the north side of the freeway was demolished in 2002 in preparation for construction which began in 2004. The interior two lanes in each direction between SH 6 and west I-610, the Katy Freeway Managed Lanes or Katy Tollway, were built as high-occupancy toll lanes and are managed by the Harris County Toll Road Authority. The section just west of SH 6 to the Fort Bend–Harris county line opened in late June 2006.[7] Two intersections were rebuilt (Beltway 8 and I-610), toll booths were added, together with landscaping as part of Houston's Highway Beautification Project. Most of the section between Beltway 8 and SH 6 had been laid by September 2006 and work was completed in October 2008. Tolls on the managed lanes vary by vehicle occupancy, axle count and time of day. High occupancy vehicles may travel for free at certain times.[8] Severe flooding of the Sabine River occurred in March 2016. Days of continuous heavy rains, coupled with the controversial opening of the Toledo Bend Dam and the release of 207,000 to 208,000 cubic feet per second (5,900 to 5,900 m3/s) into the river, caused the closing of I-10.[9] The water level in Deweyville rose to 130-year record heights prompting a joint decision by the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LaDOTD) to close I-10 for four days near Orange.

Dispute over workforce dollars might cost jobs
 
02:32
By Emily Baucum, News 4 ReporterFacebook: Emily Baucum TVTwitter: @EmilyBaucumSAN ANTONIO ‚€œ A complicated problem could impact the future of Workforce Solutions Alamo, the organization whose career centers help the unemployed all over San Antonio and surrounding communities.News 4 learned a letter was sent out Thursday to nearly 150 people who are contracted through a local group called SER to work at San Antonio career centers. The employees were given 60 days notice the center might be shutting down.Workforce Solutions hopes to save those jobs and solve what's been a major roadblock.Bexar County Commissioner Kevin Wolff says the problem boils down to too many hands in the money jar.The problem‚„s been going on for two years now but only recently did top leaders with Bexar County learn something was wrong.‚“I think the can got kicked down the road, and we‚„ve run out of road,‚ Workforce Solutions board vice-chair Rocky Marshall says.Workforce Solutions helps job seekers create a resume, apply for positions and nail the interview. The state and federal governments dole out the money to keep the career centers running, from staffing and workshops to daycare.‚“That‚„s over $70 million worth of contracts,‚ Commissioner Wolff says.He‚„s the board chair for the Alamo Area Council of Governments, or AACOG, one of several groups involved in figuring out where the money goes. Many of the members of the groups overlap.Marshall and the Workforce board say that‚„s a conflict of interest because the same people writing the service contracts can bid on them, too.In order to have integrity in our system, a contractor really needs to be an arm's length transaction,‚ Marshall says.The conflict of interest could potentially have a big impact on the unemployed. The contract for the local career centers is up in September, and the clock‚„s ticking.If we don't do our job here, and do it very quickly, they'll wake up, they'll drive down to their local workforce area and they'll go, ‚œDoors are closed,‚„ Commissioner Wolff says.Workforce Solutions says despite SER‚„s decision to give 60-days notice to some workers, it has a plan in place to keep the centers open, maintain the same level of service and avoid the layoffs.But to head off future problems the AACOG board brought in the Texas Workforce Commission to find out how to fix the problem.You just seem a little intense for me today,‚ an AACOG board member told the lawyer at one point.‚“Well, I‚„m tired of dealing with this issue,‚ the Commission‚„s lawyer said loudly.The conversation got heated when the Commission‚„s lawyer suggested trimming the fat and removing some of the groups who are involved in the contract process.If we take what they suggest, that ‚€œ for all intents and purposes removes the local control,‚ Commissioner Wolff says.

Renewing San Antonio’s Brackenridge Park Summit – Panel 1: Suzanne Scott
 
23:55
TCLF's sold-out Leading with Landscape III: Renewing San Antonio's Brackenridge Park summit, held on March 3, 2017, at The Stable at Pearl, featured nationally prominent practitioners and other leaders who explored options for the park's future and initiated and inspired broad community-based participation. Convened in concert with the Brackenridge Park Conservancy (BPC) it drew attention to local, regional, and national project work that are exemplars of planning and design, while striking a balance for a landscape’s complex natural, historic, cultural, and ecological systems. To learn more about the conference: http://tclf.org/sites/default/files/microsites/sanantonio2017/index.html Panelist - Panel 1: What San Antonio’s Brackenridge Park Can Learn from Local Successes Suzanne B. Scott, General Manager, San Antonio River Authority How a Rekindled Love of the San Antonio River Can Spark Renewed Passion for Brackenridge Park You would think that a city known for its River Walk would have an intrinsic value for the ecological and quality of life benefits of its waterways. The truth is after the completion of the famous San Antonio River Walk other reaches of the San Antonio River and its tributaries were channelized for flood control purposes, denuded of natural habitat, or transformed into the drainage ditches to convey runoff from a growing urbanized area. That all changed in 1998 when the San Antonio River Authority, the City of San Antonio, and Bexar County partnered to initiate the San Antonio River Improvements Project, a stakeholder-driven project to enhance and restore thirteen miles of the San Antonio River north and south of downtown. With more than $384 million invested over fifteen years, a community vision to make the San Antonio River more than just the River Walk has been realized. Today, residents live, work, and play along the river and restored ecosystems thrive. This renewed appreciation for the river catalyzed the creation of 52.6 miles of creekway trails and sparked a recent initiative to restore two-miles of the historic San Pedro Creek, a drainage ditch in the heart of San Antonio’s bustling downtown. These projects enjoy strong community support and are generating a renewed interest in the use and value of urban green spaces. This presentation will discuss how this community network should be leveraged to build broader stakeholder support and passion for the redevelopment of Brackenridge Park.
