URGENT FEEDBACK NEEDED ON HWY 46!

URGENT: HWY 46 FEEDBACK NEEDED OR TOLLING IS IN THE FUTURE!
The following is an email from a supporter in response to some questions she asked several people. After the meeting at GVTC, April 26, there are SO many things about this project that are disturbing.

Such as:
• Citizens have less than 30 days to respond.
• Contradictory statements made by TxDOT representative about the tolling of 46.
• County and TxDOT representatives REFUSE to delete the clause about tolling 46 in the future, even though they claim it will not be done.
• Contradictory evidence about traffic at 46 & 281used to justify the “rush”, as compared to the traffic data used last year to justify Home Depot.
• Homeowners in Bulverde will bear the property tax to pay for a road that is probably used more by commercial vehicles and county residents than by city residents.
• County and cities are agreeing to a document that does NOT have a definite plan or design. How can it be known what the cost is if there is no plan??
• City of Bulverde is possibly entering into a contract that is too general, very much like the Home Depot SUP that we have had no control over.
• TxDOT threatened Bulverde by saying that if we do not enter into this contract with the county now, TxDOT will not fund a 46 project for 20-25 years, if that.

PLEASE contact your Bulverde elected officials about your concerns here.

    “TxDOT threatened Bulverde by saying that if we do not enter into this contract with the county now, TxDOT will not fund a 46 project for 20-25 years, if that.”

    WooHoo! I’ll vote for that. At least I’ll know that the Hill Country won’t be over-developed in the same manner as Loop 1604.

    TxDOT and other pathetic politicians don’t seem to understand, more development=more infrastructure=higher taxes to support infrastructure and congestion.

    Stop the overdevelopment and our congestion problems will cease.

    I am a small business owner that is fed up with the talk about tolling 46 & 281. I have sent letters to my representitives and any other person involved. These emails / letters state: That when my customers (aka their constituents) ask why their cost of services will go up, and they will, I tell them to talk to their county and city governments about the proposed toll roads. It is bad enough with the rising gas prices! I have not raised my prices yet and do not want to do so, but let this toll road thing get going and I will not have any other choice. And I am not the only one either!
