SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority hosted a design update meeting on August 4 to obtain input from project stakeholders, property owners and the public regarding new design enhancements and public art elements that could be featured along the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project from Houston Street to Cesar Chavez Street.
The meeting took place from 9 to 11 a.m. at the San Antonio River Authority, 100 E. Guenther Street. Members of the project’s construction and design teams, and the co-chairs of the Citizens Advisory Committee were available to answer questions.
“As with all design aspects of the San Pedro Creek Improvements Projects, it is important for us to receive input from the community to help guide the team in prioritizing and refining the dynamic design and public art elements for Phase I,” said Suzanne Scott, General Manager of the San Antonio River Authority.
Construction on the San Pedro Creek Improvements Project began in early January of this year, and progress will continue on Phase 1 through spring of 2018. As part of the city’s Tricentennial celebration, Bexar County will celebrate the transformation of San Pedro Creek with a special dedication ceremony on May 5, 2018, to officially open the first segment of Phase 1, from the Tunnel Inlet to Houston Street.
