WILLAMSON COUNTY, TX — Officials are celebrating $4.5 million in new improvements to the Williamson County Expo Center that includes the addition of a 44,000-square-foot pavilion.

San Antonio has fewer teen pregnancies, more high school graduates and is using less water and energy, according to data from SA2020, an initiative launched 10 years ago by then-San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro to outline the city’s priorities for the next decade.
Then-Mayor Julian Castro launched the SA2020 initiative in 2010 to create goals for the future.

Through the end of October, residents will have another chance to provide feedback said Kiran Kaur Bain, the SA2020 director
