STATION AREA WORKSHOPS

Since early December, the SA Corridors team has reached out to neighborhood groups across San Antonio to ask a simple question - "what does transit-supportive development look like to you?"

Over 50 participants provided their vision for the future of transit-supportive development in their neighborhood, specifically the areas near VIA's proposed transit stations.  Attendees participated in a hands-on design exercise looking at potential development options, redevelopment/reinvestment areas, transportation, infrastructure, and public facilities. During the exercise, participants placed stickers indicating different development types and transportation improvements.

To-date, three workshops have been held focusing on the Five Points, Huebner, and Pearl station areas.  A brief list of these events is below:
