Suzanne B. Scott
We invite you to join us at the prestigious Plaza Club for our POWERhour! featuring, Suzanne B. Scott.
Suzanne was appointed General Manager of the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) in September 2007. As the chief executive officer of SARA, she is responsible to an elected 12 member Board of Directors, directs SARA’s programs, projects and efforts and manages an annual budget that is over $123 million. She oversees and works with a talented staff of over 220, including engineers, scientists, environmental managers, field crews and a host of other professionals to extend SARA’s environmental leadership, stewardship and expertise and broaden appreciation for San Antonio’s most precious resource and its ecosystem.
Scott began her career with SARA in May of 2000. She pioneered the agency’s first intergovernmental and public information office to increase SARA’s presence in the community and enhance its partnerships with local, state and federal governments. Her efforts led to an intergovernmental partnership among 24 governments known as the Bexar Regional Watershed Management (BRWM) program to collaboratively address flood control and water quality programs on a watershed basis. She currently serves as chair of the Senate Bill 3 Guadalupe – San Antonio Basin and Bay Stakeholder Committee that has been charged with developing recommendations regarding environ-mental flow standards and strategies for the basin.
Under Scott’s leadership, SARA has advanced its mission to sustain and enrich life in the San Antonio River Watershed by working closely with a multitude of governmental partners, citizen stakeholders and private sector contributors. She has led the agency’s efforts to plan, develop and secure funding for the recently completed $358.3 million San Antonio River Improvements Project to enhance access to and restoration of 13 miles of the San Antonio River.
