It's 2013, the new year beacons for another thread like this. Within a year San Antonio, Texas encounters more tourist visits than Germany. This might be kind of scary facts for the European nation, since its an economic powerhouse to the EU and all. On the other hand San Antonio is quiet, large, yet feels like a small town in some ways. Whats San Antonio's next giant leap? Who's in charge of brainstorming crucial innovations for Bexar county? Whats the city missing?? Cause its missing plenty, I know that much.

Default What the city still lacks?

Fluoride free water would be a great start! Less "dumbies" would be nice!

The new Primo bus system is great, I would love to see more of these.
I'm loving the Downtown "revitalization" but it seems a little too slow, I would like to see more projects going up downtown.

And I think more skyscrapers downtown would be nice but i know that wont happen for another 30 years (and YES i know the reason why this wont happen have been discussed a plethora of times in many other threads, so PLEASE don't bring it up. I don't want to start another tall building debate. just saying it would be nice)
