Public invited to Crime and Public Safety Workshop
SAN ANTONIO, TX.- The City of San Antonio’s Planning and Community Development Department, in partnership with the San Antonio Police Department, Housing and Neighborhood Services Department, and the Animal Care Services Department, has scheduled a public meeting for community stakeholders to provide input regarding crime and public safety for the proposed Eastern Triangle Community Plan. The Planning Workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, June 17 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Highland Social Club, 2929 S. W. W. White.
This is the first planning workshop in a series of four. During this workshop, members of the community will use ideas from the May 31 public meeting to develop goals related to the topics of Crime and Public Safety. The information gathered at the meeting will be incorporated into the plan. The second planning workshop will be in July and the third and fourth planning workshop will be in August. The remaining three planning workshops will focus on transportation, infrastructure, drainage, economic development, housing, land use, parks, and community facilities.
The Eastern Triangle planning area is located in southeast Bexar County and is generally bounded by IH-10 to the north; South Foster Road and Loop 410 to the east; New Sulphur Springs, Southcross Boulevard and Roland Avenue the south; and Pecan Valley and Roland Avenue to the west. The planning area consists of approximately 4,400 acres with a population of approximately 25,000 residents (Census 2000).
A community plan is a collaborative effort with involvement of many different community stakeholders. The plan takes into consideration the community’s goals, current land uses, best planning practices, input from government agencies and the City’s Master Plan policies. Completed plans represent the collective vision for the community. Community plans identify the preferred method and form of future growth and ideas for community improvement. After plan adoption, the future land use plan will be utilized by the City when evaluating zoning decisions.
The plan is used for policy recommendations of priority projects as part of the Annual Improvement Project Report to City Council. Additionally as a component of the City Master Plan, plans should be consulted in reviewing projects for capital projects, bonds, and consideration of new programs. Currently, there are 36 adopted community and neighborhood plans.
