April 1981

With city council elections right around the corner, Attorney Joe Riddell brings to light environmental damage along Barton Creek at the hands of current city leadership & developers, despite existing protections.

I also figured out a hike that could be taken to show people how promises had been broken over the years, promises to protect Barton Creek and Barton Springs had been broken by the errant city staff or by developers and I called that the Trail of Broken Promises.
