Btw, I'm a native San Antonian, and I do like Stone Oak.
For the Canyon Springs area, I am looking forward to Wilderness Oaks opening up through to 281.

I'm sure that's scheduled for right after the Huebner punch through <sarcasm>

Trust me I hear you, and understand the likelihood of road construction (not) being completed on time...

Seriously though..don't they need to complete the Wilderness Oaks punch through to 281 before they open up the new elementary school?

Isn't that part of the master plan in order to open the school?

I think they (school district) had hoped to connect that road before the school opened, but it's not a requirement. From what I hear, the road won't be completed by fall now.

I wish that surprised me.

It just depends on what type of home you're looking for. As someone else quoted, Oakwell would be a good choice for your price range. But, the new 'superstreet' is going to help congestion on 281 north of 1604 to Marshall Rd. and should be finished end of Sept. this year. Here's a link detailing the superstreet. http://www.ksat.com/news/22757892/detail.html

There are some great buys in the Stone Oak area right now. Moderator cut: see comment

Status/Info on what's happening with the Hardy Oak @ Knight's Cross punch through..

http://www.neisd.net/constr/bonds/projects/knights_cross/2007/files/Hardy-Oak-Road-Extension_Summary.pdf (broken link)

Two more elementaries are slated to open in 2012, one at the (proposed) "end" of Hardy Oak, between Knight's Cross and Sonterra Blvd., the other at 1604 (W) @ Huebner, NE corner. These will relieve Canyon Ridge, Stone Oak, Wilderness Oak, and Hardy Oak.

Info on propsed Bulverde Ranch ES and proposed Roseheart ES not yet available.

The development of Steubing Ranch is still years off. And as far as the land behind (to the North side of the community) the HOA negotiated very strict restrictions to the future development to protect our community. I am on the HOA board and was involved in the negotiations and signed the agreement between the HOA of Quarry at Iron Mountain and the developer. As far as not being part of Stone Oak - that is true. But that comes with benefits. For example, we have lower HOA dues and have SAWS instead of Bexar Met water. The community is nearly built out - so you can get a good idea of what it will be like when complete - most likely this year at the rapid pace of the building out here. PM me if you have questions about the HOA and restrictions on the ranch development.
