A Message From Councilman Shaw
There are lots of great things happening in our district! Just last week, City Council voted to approve a funding agreement with H-E-B for the engineering and design of street improvements to Foster Rd, where their H-E-B Distribution Center will be expanding. This expansion will bring 300+ new jobs to District 2 in addition to the 300+ existing H-E-B jobs in the district.
Many neighborhood leaders were present at last week's council meeting expressing their excitement for this project and the positive development this will bring to the eastside. We are always glad to welcome new jobs and new improvements to our community.
The road improvements will not only benefit residents and surrounding businesses, but also San Antonio Fire Department’s ability to respond quickly and efficiently to safety emergencies in the area, as our newest fire station utilizes this road as an access point. We are excited as there are more improvements to come!
Michelle and I wish you a happy Independence Day celebration this week and look forward to returning to serve you following the holiday.
Councilman William 'Cruz' Shaw
