The Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (Alamo RMA), as the local sponsor for the development of the Loop 1604 Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), is the host of this More For 1604 Blog. This Blog is the Alamo RMA’s effort to allow the public to enter into an open dialogue regarding the Loop 1604 EIS project.
The Loop 1604 EIS will be evaluating some 32 miles of Loop 1604, from FM 1957 (Potranco Road) to IH 35, in San Antonio Texas. As such, the scale of the Loop 1604 EIS planning effort deserves constant outreach and communication with you, our community. New social media or web 2.0 tools provide the Alamo RMA with an additional opportunity to communicate with and engage our community on a variety of fronts, allowing us to reach and involve groups of individuals that would not traditionally participate in this planning process. In addition to the More For 1604 Blog, the Alamo RMA is launching a Facebook Page for the project as well as a Twitter feed (@MoreFor1604) to enhance communication among the community and ensure that the Loop 1604 EIS process is as transparent as possible.
It is important to note that this project has a website (www.morefor1604.com) that will serve as the official portal to all information on the Loop 1604 EIS project, and will provide the tools needed for citizens to submit official questions, comments, and statements as part of the Loop 1604 EIS project record.
We hope that you find the information posted on this More For 1604 Blog useful, and that you will let us know your thoughts over the upcoming months via this Blog, Facebook, Twitter and the official project website. We at the Alamo RMA are very excited about the opportunity to provide you this forum to engage in discussion with each other and look forward to providing you “More For 1604.”

These tools are only intended to encourage additional public dialogue about the project.
