Hollywood Park Continues to Deal with Deer and Traffic

According to Joni Simon,  contributing writer for the North Central News,  the township of Hollywood Park continues to deal with both deer and traffic.  The deer control expert, Will Mangum, reported to the city council on Mar 16 that the efforts to reduce the deer population has been met with opposition from animal-loving residents and state bureaucrats.  Even though area ranchers had been located who would accept our re-located deer, none received the required permits from the state, and missed the deadlines.  So Hollywood Park was forced to "process" the 35 deer it did capture, and the meat was donated to the San Antonio Food Bank. 

On the issue of traffic, the council is concerned with the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority (ARMA) plans for the interchange at US 281 and Loop 1604.  According to those plans, motorists who exit Hollywood Park or Stone Oak on Voigt / Stone Oak Parkway will not be able to get on the 281 entrance ramps, potentially causing even more cut-through traffic in Hollywood Park.  The interchange project is supposed to take 30 months, with construction to begin this summer.

A third item of note in the Hollywood Park neighborhood... The Bexar Metropolitan Water District, the utility that provides water to the neighborhood, has begun sending letters to HP homeowners who have aerobic septic systems, sprinkler systems or other units that are subject to backflow into the drinking water.  Residents are being asked to have their backflow devices tested by a licensed plumber to ensure the drinking water remains clean.
