Partnering with the City of San Antonio whenever possible, T1NC hosts educational/ informational workshops to address neighborhood policies such as the new SA Comprehensive Plan, land use, zoning, neighborhood capacity-building, planning, and relevant Council Consideration Requests (CCRs) such as the Short-Term Rental and Infill Development Zoning ordinances.
In addition, T1NC disseminates information impacting San Antonio’s neighborhoods such as transportation and capital improvement projects, neighborhood displacement, infill development, and affordable housing to all Coalition members. T1NC also offers neighborhoods a forum to discuss, to advise, to support, and to organize around issues and concerns common to its members.
With such a large coalition, forty-plus of San Antonio’s inner-city neighborhoods, there exist differing opinions, priorities, and approaches in addressing neighborhood issues.
However, the common belief is that the people who live in these communities—people of all ages, ethnicities, sexual orientation, socio-economic strata, renters, owners, legacy, and newcomers—should all have a voice in the decisions affecting their neighborhood.
