Daniel Perez’s article in the July 17 San Antonio Express-News, “Southtown Successes Mean Parking Failures,” accurately highlights one of our major neighborhood issues. As I have indicated in previous posts to the Newsletter, the King William-Lavaca neighborhood joint Parking and Transportation Committee chaired by Rose Kanusky is working on gathering information to propose potential solutions to our parking-traffic issues. To offer any hope of solving any of the parking and traffic problems, it is essential that we work with the respective COSA departments. Toward that end, we have now met twice with the City Center Development and Operations staff to work jointly to find some relief to the congestion.
On July 17, we presented the scope of work prepared by Rose’s committee to CCDO office staff. Jim Mery, CCDO’s representative, and Terry Bellamy of TCI will review our scope of work and submit a request for proposal to hire a consultant to obtain the various kinds of information needed to determine solutions. The scope of work includes the following topics with each outlining a series of tasks and stating deliverables.
