The City Transportation and Capital Improvements Department recently briefed the City Council Infrastructure and Growth Committee on new street sign designs that will soon adorn roadways in the immediate vicinity of University of Texas at San Antonio campuses. The proposed sign design will emphasize the important presence of UTSA in our city.
UTSA’s continued rise also presents challenges associated with such rapid growth. The District 8 office is collaborating with university officials to facilitate the transition from commuter school to Tier One institution while ensuring that surrounding neighborhoods maintain their quality of life. One example is a proposal to create student ‘cultural zones,’ which will achieve the goals of improved campus living while mitigating spillover effects to the surrounding neighborhoods. Councilman Nirenberg suggests that this will protect neighborhood integrity and quality of life while improving the student experience at UTSA. It will also aid in law enforcement.
