Traffic barricades

Whenever there is an event at the Alamodome -- which is frequently -- traffic barricades are put up that block the intersections at Cesar Chavez and Labor Street, Indianola Street, and the alley at Hemisview Apartments. Additionally, "no parking" signs are plastered along every side street in the area. Residents in this neighborhood have to detour all the way around these barricades, making access to highways 281 and ...more »

What is the city's next Pearl?

DECO District

Lots of opportunity for mixed use development with both affordable and mid-tier apartments, cool shops, arts and a variety of restaurants. It could be tied into the jewel of Woodlawn Lake via walkable paths. It already has cool places like the Woodlawn theater, DECO Pizzeria, Cool Crest, Original Donut Shop, Tip Top Cafe, etc.

Keep B-Cycle in San Antonio

The City should step up and see if we can find some public funds to keep B-Cycle in San Antoni. Like Uber and Lyft, I think B-Cycle is an important service in the city that tourists and locals both enjoy.

 

I don't think the City should fully fund them, but some support is warranted.

 

Interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this, too!

Increase access to COSA's Outdoor Pools / Place-make with Pools

The City of San Antonio has some great outdoor pools. . . that are inaccessible too many hours of the day, days of the week, and weeks of the year, discouraging outdoor swimming and related activities at our parks and in surrounding areas. It is embarrassing to note that cities including Austin, Miami and even Cleveland and Pittsburgh offer better access to public outdoor pools, typically from sun-up to well after sun-down, ...more »

What is the city's next Pearl?

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area

I'm hoping it's the Perrin Beitel/Nacodoches area, aka The Northeast Corridor. This area reminds me of the Pearl/Broadway area looked around 10 years ago. Only time will tell if the city will follow-thru on its revitalization plan. Would be cool to have something like The Pearl outside the loop. Having Toyota Field, Morgan's Wonderland, and Ranger Creek in the area would only sweeten the deal. Submitted by Syllogism19 ...more »

Airport and Mall Shuttle Bus

It would be great, cut down on traffic, and bring money back into San Antonio from outlying areas, if there was a shuttle service from Fair Oaks area or even Boerne, into the Rim/Sea World, North Star or Central Park Mall, into the airport. It would also be terrific to have a shuttle bus that stopped at the Rim or Fair Oaks/Boerne area and made a few trips into downtown on the weekends. Would provide easy access to the ...more »

Update Historic Preservation Guidelines to Support Solar

Current San Antonio Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) Design Guidelines and recommendations - including for 'additions' and 'exterior maintenance and alterations' - appear to place an unreasonable burden on the installation of (reversible, non-damaging and, in some cases, building and way-of-life preserving) solar panels to rooftops in the city's historic districts. Current San Antonio guidelines appear to encourage ...more »

Install public toilets at Travis Park

Travis Park is a major transfer point for VIA and now site of lunchtime City food truck vending and numerous (hundreds?) of public events each year. Many of the events require the hiring and transport of port-a-potties to the park. Permanent toilets at Travis Park would reduce the cost of events as well as support public transport riders and day-to-day users of the park. Main Plaza provides one example of the type of ...more »
