SA Tomorrow

San Antonio is planning boldly. We're tackling the tough issues and making hard choices because "business as usual" isn't good enough. We are planning now to ensure that the great City of San Antonio captures the type of growth and economic development that is compatible with our community's vision of the future and provides benefits to all our current and future residents.

SA Tomorrow Sub-Area Plans

The SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan addresses wide ranging and interconnected citywide issues. As a long range vision for San Antonio, the Plan provides strategic direction for decision making and community investment. Following adoption of the Comprehensive Plan in August, 2016, the Planning Department is working with communities to create Sub-Area plans for the 13 Regional Centers and 17 Community Areas that collectively cover the entire City of San Antonio.

The Regional Center and Community Area Plans will address the following topics: Land Use; Parks and Open Space; Economic Development; Housing; Mobility and Infrastructure; Placemaking and Urban Design; and Policy and Investment Priorities.

Regional Center Plans

Regional Centers are one of the major building blocks of San Antonio’s city form and a focus of the overall SA Tomorrow effort. While most cities have one or two larger employment centers, we have 13. This provides challenges and opportunities. A major organizing principle of the City’s Comprehensive Plan is to focus growth in these Regional Centers, building on the existing pattern of development. They are envisioned as new “places” where we live, work, and play.

The Brooks Area Regional Center is a community of pioneering spirit; with a history influenced by colonial missions, early flight schools & aeronautical medicine. This resilient, pioneering spirit has led the Brooks Area into the forefront of economic activity for the Southside; turning adversity into opportunity by redeveloping Brooks City-base, now a major catalyst for growth on the south side of the City and the anchoring namesake for Regional Center. The Brooks area continues to be cutting edge and forward-thinking; placing emphasis on collaborative & sustainable strategies which benefit the environment, health and wellbeing, education and overall quality of life for the future.

Community Area Plans

Community Areas form the rest of San Antonio outside of the Regional Centers. These areas comprise many of our existing neighborhoods, grouped by geography and common history, challenges, and opportunities. By proactively directing a higher proportion of growth to our Regional Centers, we aim to limit the impacts of that growth on existing, stable neighborhoods. However, cities and neighborhoods are always evolving, and we must plan to adapt to and leverage change for all our existing and future residents by creating complete neighborhoods and communities that provide a full range of amenities and services, a variety of housing and transportation choices, and opportunities for employment, shopping, education, and recreation.

Ongoing Community Center Plans
