S.A.-Austin Metroplex?

It looks like that whole breakfast taco squabble is in the past.

Austin and San Antonio appear to be working together toward the future.

“I’m very focused on how we can work more closely with Austin,” San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor told KTSA News.

The fact is, with continued growth, the city’s are getting closer together.

“Our fates, as a region, are tied together,” she said. “Beyond transportation, there are probably other issues we could work on.”

They’ll get the chance in April, when Mayor Taylor and Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler plan to meet. The focus squarely on the future.

“I think we both share the same view that, over the next 20, 30, 40 years, San Antonio and Austin will continue to grow closer and closer together,” Adler told KTSA.

It might get to the point where Austin and San Antonio becomes “one big megaplex,” he said.

Much talk has centered around transportion, so would a larger regional airport make sense?

“That would certainly be one of things we should be thinking about, looking at, or asking whether or not that makes sense.”

Again, the two mayors meet in April.
