SA Mayor Julian Castro kicks off the SA Public Library's Summer Reading Program. The difference this year is it's now part of the SA2020 program. NOWCastSA produced a live webcast of the news conference. Watch it at the link below.
The finale of the first College Week in San Antonio was a celebration of graduating high school seniors and their declaration of attending college and the promise to graduate by 2015. NOWCastSA streamed the entire event, which can be seen at the link below.
Residents of at least four San Antonio council districts told city leaders their thoughts on how to bring businesses to the city's west side and how to improve the quality of life there. Click the link to see the webcast of what the residents shared.
After two public meetings to find out what the residents wanted, the HemisFair Park Redevelopment Corporation released its framework plan of a redesign. The plan includes removal of federal buildings such as the Federal Courthouse, and an expansion of the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
Now that San Antonio made its wishes for 2020 known, what happens next? UTSA Downtown, as part of its Great Cities Dialogue, brought residents together to figure out how to accomplish those goals.
The final report is bound and released on an overcast Saturday morning on the grounds of UTSA's downtown campus. Click the link below for a PDF version of the final report.
While not an official SA2020 event, the planning sessions focused on the redevelopment of HemisFair Park have taken the same route as the SA2020 events. In an exercise similar to the computer game "Sim City," participants drew and laid out their collective vision of what HemisFair Park should look like in the future. At the meeting, Andres Andujar was named the new CEO of the HemisFair Park Redevelopment Corporation. NOWCastSA had an exclusive interview that evening.
This is the final meeting in the "Plan It" stages of SA2020. About 1,000 people were on hand at TriPoint to make their views known. San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro ended the meeting by speaking of the next steps to move SA2020 into reality.
About 100 downtown residents or friends of downtown met to discuss what they wanted from the city. The link is a write-up from the Downtown Alliance of the morning's meeting.
Several hundred people gathered at Greehey Arena on the campus of St. Mary's University to craft their statements on what San Antonio should be like by the year 2020.
