Deep In The Heart of Texas

The San Antonio City Council has agreed to extend construction deadlines for the Cibolo Canyons PGA Tour golf resort, much to the chagrin of environmentalists who have been trying to block the project for more than four years. Opponents of the project, which was first attempted by the PGA of America, basically don’t want the resort developer, Forestar Real Estate Group, to use Edwards Aquifer water for golf course irrigation.

The project’s backers, however, say the resort would be bring additional jobs and tourism to the San Antonio area.

The deadline extensions give Forestar (formerly Lumbermen's Investment Corp.) six more months to begin construction of a Marriott hotel and anchor golf courses and 18 more months to complete construction.
