Tired of Traffic?
Precinct 3 Comal County Commissioner Kevin Webb will discuss traffic issues plaguing the region 7 p.m. Thursday, March 23 at Tye Preston Memorial Library, 16311 S. Access Rd., Canyon Lake.
He’s the featured speaker at “The Future of Transportation and Air Quality in Comal County,” a public forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters-Comal Area (LWV-CA) as part of their study of land-use planning in the county.
Webb serves on the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization’s (AAMPO) executive committee. The regional agency oversees over $200 million in state and federal transportation funding.
Richard Dixon, Ph.D., professor of geography at Texas State University, will address air-quality issues and ideas for reducing pollution levels. He’ll also explain how Air Improvement Resources (AIR) works. AIR is part of the Alamo Area Council of Governments, which creates region-wide strategies for improving air quality.
Planning for Growth
“Complaints about traffic congestion from IH-35 to Highway 281 and all roads in between are usually at the top of anyone’s list when discussing growth in Comal County,” says LWV-CA President Roxanna Deane. “Our speakers have been invited to explain planning that is being done to reduce congestion and to reduce the air pollution that accompanies it.”
“Growth is causing all of us to focus on how best to plan for the future of Comal County, including New Braunfels, Garden Ridge, Bulverde, and Spring Branch” continued Deane. “We appreciate our speakers sharing their respective expertise in regional planning for transportation and regional planning to improve air quality.”
