All of our neighborhood proposed UDC Amendments were supported by the Planning Commission thanks to Councilman Courage and neighborhood voices.
OUR SUCCESS IS BECAUSE OF YOU! Neighborhood leaders and residents across the city sent letters and left voice comments. It was pretty hard to ignore our issues when so many residents stood up for their neighborhoods.
The UDC codes are the key to stabilizing our neighborhoods. T1NC UDC amendments 16-1 through 16-13 that are a result of neighborhood concerns across San Antonio on issues of the public participation process, incompatible development, short term rentals (STRs), Neighborhood Plans, and the regulation of gas stations in residential areas. We were very happy to note and support GEAA’s water management amendments and other amendments from neighborhoods.
We have worked extensively with Development Services Department (DSD) to refine and edit our amendments so that they have the greatest chance of success. We want to express our appreciation to the staff, particularly to Catherine Hernandez, Melissa Ramirez, and Logan Sparrow.
We have also worked with the Planning Department and want to express our appreciation to them as well particularly Micah Diaz and Rudy Nino.
Most of our amendments have been supported at PCTAC. Several amendments have been withdrawn, but their most important elements were rolled into other amendments.
Most of our amendments will go back to the Planning Commission, and then to various boards and commissions before it goes to the City Council for adoptions.
These amendments will need support every step of the way. They could get changed or dropped. In the end we will need Council support which comes from citizen input.
We will need more letters and voice input at future hearings and often we will not have much time to create support.
When we need your support again at the Planning Commission and other boards and commissions as they move through the process:
