Library

Buzz on over to the library to take on your literary challenge all month long in October!  Here’s how it will work: Pick a challenge from the picnic basket at the upstairs information desk. Read the challenge and meet it! Put completed challenges in the beehive jar. You can be as busy a bee as you want by completing as many challenges as you like. The more you complete, the more chances you have of winning prizes. One completed challenge will be drawn at the end of each week; the prize for the week is a $25 Amazon gift card. At the end of the month, one challenge will be drawn from the month’s accumulation; the overall prize for the month is a Kindle Fire preloaded with $100 worth of titles in the genre of your choice. 

Mobility Projects

The Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) is prioritizing mobility projects listed in the 2040 mobility plan, which can be read at www.mobility2040.org/ . If you missed the MPO public input meeting, you can still participate in the selection process by reviewing and selecting mobility projects that are most important to the Boerne community.
There are two TXDOT transportation improvement projects on the list that directly impact us:
25) "IH 10 West from FM 3351 (Ralph Fair Road) to US 87: Major Corridor Operational Improvements ($50,000,000)” This project includes widening the HWY 46 bridge over IH 10
42) "SH 46 from Herff Road to Amman Road: Expand from 2 Lane to 4 Lane Roadway w/ Raised Median and/or Continuous Left Turn Lane ($10,200,000)" This project will widen HWY 46 East from Herff Road to Amman Road.
This data over the course of 6 public meetings and electronic input will be presented to various MPO committees. Citizen input can have a positive impact on final project prioritization, project funding and the timing of the funding. City staff believes that the strong public response to the latest round of MPO funding was the reason the Scenic Loop IH 10 interchange was funded so quickly.
There are fifty projects on the entire list and you are asked to rank your top 5. The list can be found at www.mobility2040.org/public/ We hope you will take a couple of minutes to participate in this very important selection process.
