FUTURE GROWTH CHALLENGE
We challenged participants at this year's Siclovia to show us where new jobs and housing development should occur. After all, we know San Antonio is growing. We can't control how much we grow, but we can shape how and where we grow. Participants were asked to place two Lego tiles on a map - one representing new jobs (brown) and one representing new houses and apartments (yellow).
Participants placed over 300 individual Lego tiles over the course of a single afternoon. Of the 300 tiles placed, 152 represented housing (yellow) and 148 were jobs (brown). Tiles were placed all over the region, but an overwhelming number (74% of jobs and 82% of housing) were placed in close proximity to corridors where the City of San Antonio and VIA Metropolitan Transit will be making investments over the coming decades.
