Harry Bowers, New Braunfels City Council representative for District 3, will host his quarterly citizen forum July 15 at 6 p.m.

The forum will be held virtually using the Zoom online video conference platform, and residents can attend by visiting the city website.


According to a press release, the forum discussion will include a conversation about pedestrian safety on Fredericksburg Road between Ohio Street and Landa Park with Public Works Director Greg Malatek and City Engineer Garry Ford.

“We will be discussing possible safety improvements and I’m hoping to hear from residents that live along Fredericksburg Rd. as well as from those that use that stretch of roadway for exercise and recreation,” Bowers said in the press release.

The forum will also include updates from previous forum topics and a general question-and-answer session.
