June Kachtik has lived in the Foothills since 1972. “We bought the last vacant lot on our street and my husband and I literally built our home while our children were small. I’m proud to say it is still standing!”
June is a former president of VJNI (1986 and 1987). Prior to that decade she was a zoning commissioner and served on committees related to infrastructure, neighborhoods, water and land use. Volunteer activities in the 1990’s included being president of the San Antonio Coalition of Neighborhoods and The Neighborhood Resource Center.
The urban environment has always been of particular interest to June. She helped initiate and chaired the City’s Open Space Advisory board in the 1980’s and helped form the non-profit local land trust, now known as Green Spaces Alliance of South Texas in the 1990’s. The organization works with community gardeners in Districts 8 and 9, hosts a youth photography contest with winners displayed at Hardberger Park in May, and conserves land. She returned to Green Spaces in 2013 and is currently the board president.
In the 1980’s June had a woman-owned business as a planning consultant, after getting her master’s degree from UTSA in environmental management and urban planning. When the Unitarian Universalists initiated a non-profit housing organization in San Antonio in 1989, June became its executive director. Approximately 200 homes were repaired or built for low-income residents in neighborhoods in City Council Districts One and Two. Finally retired, after three attempts, June still loves being involved with the community, reading, and being with her children, grandchildren and great granddaughter.
