San Antonio is NACTO's 6th Climate Challenge Accelerator City

On the heels of passing SA Climate Ready, San Antonio announced a partnership with NACTO through the American Cities Climate Challenge. Working with VIA Metropolitan Transit, San Antonio is tapping into the rich technical network offered at NACTO (the National Association of City Transportation Officials) to rapidly build out 2-3 high-quality transit corridors. First up: S. Zarzamora Street. Read full story.

Walkability assessment takes next step

New Braunfels Senior Planner Jean Drew crosses Main Plaza in New Braunfels
Through our Walkable Community Program, the MPO is working with the City of New Braunfels to assess walkability of its downtown. On December 11th, staff from both agencies walked routes around Main Plaza to collect photos and document challenges to walking and biking in the area. MPO staff will provide the City of New Braunfels with a report in early 2020 that captures input from the public and agency staff. Find out more.
The MPO's Walkable Community Program helps build a safer, healthier, and greener transportation system to improve our community's quality of life. For more information or to request a Walkable Community Workshop for your own school, neighborhood or community group, contact Joey Pawlik, the MPO's Active Transportation Planner, at pawlik@alamoareampo.org
