Dear Friends in King William,
Last month, after a busy fall of Bond Committee meetings and community input, my City Council colleagues and I unanimously voted to approve the slate of projects the City staff and the Bond Committees presented to Council. I felt the process was inclusive and many voices were heard, considered, and incorporated. I am a proponent of inclusivity and I always encourage the community to participate in the processes of government. To that end, I hosted three Bond Block Parties in various parts of the district to ensure there were multiple opportunities to meet the District 1 Bond Committee members to propose and discuss projects important to neighborhoods.
As both your Councilmember and District 1 neighbor, I encourage you to investigate the entirety of the projects proposed on the Bond that we will all vote on in May. Your neighborhood will be greatly impacted by well over a dozen projects that will occur within a one-mile radius of the King William Association office – in both Districts 1 and 5. Your proximity to both our downtown and the World Heritage sites mean there is an unprecedented level of investment in these areas. Proposed projects in places such as Hemisfair Park, Zona Cultural, Alamo Plaza, the Lone Star area and San Pedro Creek, plus the many streets, drainage and facilities projects represent a significant focus on the continued revitalization of the urban core.
You can find out more about the proposed 2017-2022 Municipal Bond at www.sanantonio.gov/2017Bond. The infrastructure projects are listed by category and by district. The numbers of projects and associated dollars are also summarized by proposition (category) and dollar amount. Project design and scopes are not yet available; however, my staff is always available to answer questions and provide you as much information as possible. You can reach the District 1 staff at 207-0900.
Thank you for being an active and involved neighborhood community.
- Roberto C. Treviño
Councilman, District 1
