SUBJECT:

Briefing on the Brooks Area Regional Center Plan


SUMMARY:

The Planning Department will provide a briefing on the Brooks Area Regional Center Plan, the first of the SA Tomorrow Sub-Area Plans slated for adoption. The Sub-Area Plans implement the SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan.


BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan is one of three growth-related plans addressing how the City of San Antonio's expected population growth will be balanced with social, economic, and environmental resources. The Comprehensive Plan provides strategic direction for decision making and public investment to prepare the San Antonio community for anticipated growth. The major "building blocks" of the Comprehensive Plan include:
* Regional Centers
* Urban Centers
* Corridors
* Neighborhoods

The Brooks Area Regional Center Plan aims to create a realistic and implementable strategy to address projected growth in the Brooks Area Regional Center, one of the thirteen (13) Regional Centers identified in the SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan. Anchored by the redevelopment of the Brooks campus, this area is one of San Antonio's emerging activity centers and a major catalyst for growth on the south side of the City. The main topics covered by the Plan include Land Use, Mobility, Amenities and Infrastructure, Focus Areas/Corridors, Catalytic Projects, Economic Development, and Housing.

As success of the Sub-Area Plan depends on broad participation from area stakeholders, Planning Department staff worked with a wide range of community members throughout the planning process. These included neighborhood associations, business and property owners, residents, employers, educational and cultural institutions, public and nonprofit organizations, and other City departments.
