In December, City Council approved a redesign project of 6.4 square-miles from Alazan Creek to Cherry Street and Interstate 35 to the Missions National Historic Park. The Downtown Area Regional Center Plan will focus on residential, retail, and green spaces.

A team of more than 30 members involved in crafting the plan included city officials, developers, neighborhood leaders, representatives from the tourism and real estate industries, members of the business and arts communities, transportation officials, disability advocates, architects, urban planners and more.

What is the plan for Downtown San Antonio? How will new development affect area businesses, residents, neighborhoods and tourism? What do you want to see happen downtown?
