I'm both proud and surprised she won. Hard to believe San Antonio has a black mayor and one that was actually elected.

Good news.

Google Fiber coming to San Antonio
Quote:
It’s done – San Antonio is going to become a Google Fiber city.

The Internet giant’s blazing fast gigabit network is headed to the Alamo City, the Mountain View, California-based company will announce Wednesday, according to several City Hall sources.

The confirmation that San Antonio will join a short list of so-called “Fiber cities” is nearly 18 months in the making and comes after disappointment that it had been passed over in the first round of announcements.

And apparently it will be delivered by one of Google's driverless vehicles.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that finds just, weird.. It's mirrored, but the van isn't. The Marriott looks really funky next to the Grand Hyatt.

The funny thing is that they flipped the background photo so that they could match the skyline on the service vehicle, which is photo-shopped into the foreground.

How funny.

Ha! I was trying to figure out where the photo was taken. Now I know... Neverland.

Woohoo! What's the timeline for this? Is it anywhere in the city limits? Will I get it out here in Stone Oak?

I do. Not much happens in the San Antonio threads, so the backwards photo was actually something to talk about.

He's got a point. You can go weeks without updates or discussion on this site.

We're all pinning our hopes on the Frost Tower, and an unlikely to happen CPS building.

There's a ton of development occurring in the urban core and suburban areas of San Antonio. Tons and tons of stuff.

The only thing stopping people from discussing those developments is themselves.

It's pathetic and sad really.

Go to OKCTalk and see all the activity on that forum and they're literally talking about top golf and mini golf places and five story hotels and restaurants. But that board has members that care enough, even about those small minute developments, that they have constant discussions.

There's hundreds and hundreds of residential units being built in the urban core right now. Not a soul is discussing them.

There's three cranes in the skyline of the urban core, and no talk from anyone.

People want to bitch and complain and compare and that's when the discussions take off. That's again, sad and pathetic.

I try to do my best to stimulate this board by posting content and other things but alas, I think this board was more active when the Grand Hyatt was proposed and then Vidorra.

The amount of development in the urban core at the time was literally those two things. Yet, people were more engaged then they are now.

It is what it is.

The Mayor keeps making things happen...Lyft is coming back.

Quote:
“The new agreement with Lyft provides San Antonians with the ability to make an informed mobile transportation choice,” Mayor Ivy Taylor said in a press statement.

City Councilman Ron Nirenberg is hopeful San Antonio can put months of political posturing over ride sharing in the past and secure more transportation options for area residents and businesses.

I'm a little confused as to how Ivy operates. She said she didn't want any of this stuff to happen and now she does... She's too wishy washy for me.

Pretty sure she never said any of that.
