Is San Antonio On Track To Achieve The SA2020 Community Vision?

A decade ago, local nonprofit SA2020 asked: “In the year 2020, what do you want our city to look like?” The answers culminated in a community vision that was the impetus for tracking progress toward a variety of goals to improve conditions in San Antonio. 

SA2020 recently released its 2019 community impact report. What do these latest results indicate about different cause areas? Which goals were met or exceeded? Which target areas are most off track?

Has the city seen measurable progress over the last 10 years? What are the major takeaways? How should this data be interpreted? What effect has SA2020's data and engagement efforts had on San Antonio since its launch?

Through a new community engagement survey, SA2020 again endeavors to understand where residents want to see San Antonio make progress in the years to come. Themes rising to the top of responses so far include mobility and education. What will be included in San Antonio's vision for the next decade?

How else can the community become more involved in building a better city and improving conditions for all residents? What does the nonprofit have in store for San Antonio post-2020?
