PROPOSED OUTER LOOP
As both a citizen of Comal County (born and raised) and as the Libertarian Candidate for Texas State Representative, District 73, I am emphatically against the proposed Outer Loop which is slated to cross the beautiful, pristine waters of River Road at the 2nd crossing. This massive six-lane expressway would decimate one of the Lone Star State's most beautiful recreational areas as well as undoubtedly contaminating the Edwards Aquifer.
I totally support the Guadalupe River Road Alliance (GRRA), an organization consisting of concerned residents, property and business owners, and Hill Country enthusiasts who believe our Texas Heritage and Natural Resources are in danger of being destroyed because of this developer driven plan. For more information regarding the GRRA, please go to their website at:
I also endorse the Citizens' Alliance for Smart Expansion (CASE), whose mission is "to preserve what is unique to our area, protect our quality of life and encourage responsible growth."
As a grassroots organization, CASE is "dedicated to educate the public and address New Braunfels area planning and growth issues by working with Government leaders for the betterment of the Community."
The website for CASE is: www.nbcase.org
Without doubt, viable alternatives to this proposed route need to be explored by citizens and experts alike who understand and appreciate the inherent beauty of this area, including its long-established economic value.
Both of these dedicated organizations deserve your support. Get involved -- contact GRRA and CASE today and help bring some sanity to this extremely important issue.
