General Meetings

Tuesday, January 20th: No January Meeting

There will be no General Meeting in January. Instead, Sierrans are encouraged to attend the Lone Star Commuter Rail EIS Scoping meeting to learn about and provide comments on future two-way commuter rail service between San Antonio and Austin. See our Community Events page for more information.

Tuesday, February 17th: Learn about Commuter Rail between San Antonio & Austin

Joe Black, Rail Manager of the Lone Star Rail District, will provide an update on progress of the LSTAR Commuter Rail between SA and Austin. It will utilize the Union Pacific track and make stops in San Marcos and New Braunfels. Progress is being made in Austin to move the project forward. San Antonio needs to become aware of this new future commuter service from San Antonio to Austin.

Our February meeting will be at EcoCentro instead of the Witte Museum. Times, locations, and speaker bios are on our Events page.

SAWS Vista Ridge Pipeline Deal

City Council approved SAWS' $3.4 billion Vista Ridge Pipeline contract on October 30th. But we remain committed to working on this issue so we can make sure the deal is equitable to ratepayers and environmentally sound.

Visit our Clearinghouse for Vista Ridge Information webpage, where you can find news articles about the deal, comments and analyses about the proposal, and technical studies.
