SAN ANTONIO — The City Council today approved the first portion of a two-part land purchase, leading the way to a new park in the Stone Oak area that will become one of the largest in the city.
In a 10-0 vote, the council signed off on buying 165 acres of the Classen-Steubing ranch, and placed an option to buy an additional 39 acres through the 2017 bond program.
The total cost for the entire 204-acre tract, which will also serve as aquifer protection, will be about $10.1 million. The council’s vote Thursday was to spend about $6.3 million for the first 165 acres. More than $5 million of that comes from Prop 1 aquifer protection funding.

"The project will also complete the north-south Hardy Oak Road extension, and Huebner Road will extend to Hardy Oak."


Great news. Does mean it will finally extend all the way to Sonterra?

If you mean Hardy Oak, then yes. Huebner will T into Hardy Oak.

Not sure if I'm totally thrilled just yet. I live in a neighborhood off of Huebner Rd. Mornings and evenings can be difficult to leave due to cut-through traffic. Once the 281/1604 interchange is finally completed, THEN I'll be happy.

Also, kudos to the family for selling well under market value. They headed off more development of that area, which would have meant MORE traffic, schools, etc.

The park is great and this will really help Stone Oak mobility. When Blanco was finished it it helped Stone Oak Parkway. When Hardy Oak is done that gives five ways out of the north-central side to 1604. Now they need to increase capacity on 1604.

What IS the approximate market value on those 204 acres?

That's about the best-case scenario there.

To Pobre's point, traffic might not go down significantly until 281 is widened, the overpasses are built, and the 1604 interchange is finished, but this should help.

In 1991, my cuzin sold the last of his place up there. It was a 250 acre place. He got 77 million for it...cash. All of that in the area is the old family homestead. I'm related to all of that bunch. The cuzin that sold it lived at what is now the Canyon Springs Golf Club. The folks buried at the cemetery there are family. The oldest woman buried there was murdered by her husband and would have been my great aunt. Now if they'd just include me on the paychecks...
