New Braunfels Chamber

The Chamber’s Transportation Committee will meet on December 1, at 7:30 a.m. in Honors Hall. Art Brinkkoeter, Chairman, will preside. The engineers from City, County, and TXDOT will present updates to the projects and work currently underway in New Braunfels and Comal County. A special presentation will be given by Clay Smith, engineer and special projects coordinator for VIA in San Antonio. This is a timely presentation since the Committee has presented an approved list of TIP projects to both the City and County to be submitted to the AAMPO on December 1. VIA is a part of the AAMPO and works in cooperation with TxDOT and all MPO projects and business. For more information about the Transportation Committee contact Rusty Brockman at 830-608-2811.
