Leaders from the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce have testified in favor of the proposed $830 million 2017-2022 Bond Program.
The largest bond program in San Antonio history was passed unanimously by the City Council and will go to the voters in May. If approved, it would provide funding for over 170 projects including streets, libraries, parks and drainage. Precisely, there would be more than 60 projects to improve San Antonio's streets, bridges and sidewalks and a $450 million allotment for street amenities, road construction, multi-use paths and multimodal facilitates.
City Manager Sheryl Sculley said 90 percent of the San Antonio population woud directly benefit from the revitalization provided by the bond.
With 1.5 million new residents expected by 2040, the proposed 2017-2022 Bond Program would assist San Antonio in developing economic and structural infrastructure to meet that anticipated growth.
