“Save Scenic Loop” Membership Drive

 IT’S OFFICIAL!

As of October 2018, the Scenic Loop – Helotes Creek Neighborhood was officially recognized by the City of San Antonio as a registered neighborhood.  Our goals are simple – to preserve the historic and natural splendor of our Scenic Loop corridor.

WHY WE WERE FORMED?

Let’s be honest, many of us live here because, frankly, we want to be left alone!  We don’t want increased traffic.  We don’t want bright lights destroying our dark skies. We don’t want dense development taking away the natural beauty that surrounds us.  We don’t want people telling us what to do, we just want to get on with our lives as we have chosen.

But change is coming and we can either control it or have it imposed upon us!  The best way to stay in the Loop (pun intended) is to become an engaged and informed resident and membership is where that begins.  Look what is happening to Hausman Road and to Galm Road.  We don’t want Scenic Loop Road to be next!

WHAT WE NEED FROM YOU?

If you are already a registered member, Thank You..!  And we ask that you forward this and talk to your neighbors about registering.

If you are not already a member, we cannot meet our objectives without YOU!  We need more than 50% of our neighborhood residents to become members of our Alliance to ensure our future success.  Please JOIN NOW..!  Join by visiting www.scenicloop.org and registering (it’s FREE).  All we need is your name, address, and email.  You will be kept informed about our neighborhood activities, invited to great informational sessions, and your level of involvement is completely up to you.

JOIN US TO BE LEFT ALONE!

We are NOT an HOA and we do not have, or wish to have, any governance rules about what can be done by residents of our neighborhood.  So what ARE our objectives?  They are:

  1. Maintain the status of the Scenic Loop-Helotes Creek corridor from Hwy 16 (Bandera Rd) to the Babcock Rd as a rural road;
  1. Keep the tree canopy intact and protected from the spread of Oak Wilt;
  1. Protect the visual, physical and aesthetic qualities of the Corridor;
  1. Support protection of the region’s historical and cultural integrity; and
  1. Support protection of the region’s natural beauty and resources to include water, viewshed and dark sky.

Our neighborhood was carefully crafted to include the head waters of all of the contributing creeks that feed through our corridor, it is inclusive of all the ridgelines demarking our corridors viewshed, as well as including all estates who rely on Scenic Loop Road for access to their homes between Bandera Road and Babcock Road.  Our designation as an official neighborhood takes us a step closer to these objectives of our Alliance.

WHAT ARE WE DOING NOW?

We are gathering historical information relative to our corridor and uploading it to the library on our website.

We are working with many different organizations related to preserving our neighborhoods waterways and greenspaces.

We are meeting with and influencing strategic roadway and traffic planning.

We are working on establishing a Neighborhood Conservation District within our neighborhood.
