An REI store, and a Cabela's. I don't like having to go Buda and Austin.

More bike trails and parks.

Less angry road raging drivers.

Someone already said this, but more enforcment on littering. The south in general has more litter bugs than up north. I was shocked when I first moved down at how people litter, not just here, but in other southern areas as well. Just blatant disregard for cleanliness.

How about stopping the sell of giant cans of beers at the gas stations with convenient little brown paper bags at the registers to conceal them in, so people can't so easily drive away while drinking them????? I see people doing this each and everytime I go to Lukes Chevron on the corner of 281 and 1863!!! Maybe that would "slightly" cut down on the drinking and driving!!!!!!

You mean something like The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City? It will not happen in San Antonio for at least 20 years my friend if it ever will. The current local demographics does not support it.

Not sure what you are calling me but if you can't type it out then it must be pretty offensive and violates TOS.

That is not a level I stoop down to. You can have the last word.

A REAL nature center!
And some major non-HEB grocery stores...competition is a good thing, virtual monopolies are NOT! More stores like Sun Harvest Farms, Whole Food and whatever that other one is called (senior moment).

Yes, I have noticed the south side is terribly littered. Where I work people dump cars, furniture, pets, dead bodies, and everything in between just anywhere. A cop had to block off a street because someone basically dumped their whole house on it.
