August 13 Cleanup Day

We received word from the City Council District 1 about the August 13 Neighborhood Cleanup Event. This is a great opportunity to take an active part in taking care of our community.

District 1 will have a tent set up on the lawn of the San Pedro Church of Christ, and residents will be able to use the church parking lot. If there are questions you can reach out to Isaac Fellows, District 1 Constituent Services, in Councilman Mario Bravo’s office by calling 210-207-0900 or emailing Isaac.fellows@sanantonio.gov.

We hope you will be able to attend. Sign up here: TINYURL.COM/2HTSNP8Z

Thanks & Parks

A note of thanks to everyone who came out and passing along some information from the Parks Department

Thanks to everyone who was able to attend the June 30 General Meeting. It was a productive time, and it was a positive thing to have our City Councilman Mario Bravo present to hear about some of our neighborhood’s challenges and needs. We will keep you posted as things develop.

On the subject of fun, the following information came through from the City of San Antonio Parks & Recreation Department. You might find helpful, particularly this Fourth of July weekend.

Outdoor Pool Season

 As of July 3, 19 pools are open across various days of the week, 13 being open on weekends. The remaining pools will open immediately as lifeguards become available and cleared to work. Outdoor pools offerings will exist every day of the week and access will increase to maximize the swim opportunity as the number of lifeguards increases. 

For the current pool schedule visit the following URL:

Close collaboration with Human Resources has occurred to improve the hiring process for aquatic positions and implement new key initiatives to increase pool staffing. These actions include a hiring incentive; paid Red Cross Lifeguard Certification training; and streamlined application and processing efforts.
