SAN ANTONIO (February 8, 2018) —Today, City Council unanimously approved Ordinance approving a professional services agreement with Alderson Associates, Inc. to perform a lighting study and develop a Downtown Lighting Master Plan. District 1 Councilman Roberto C. Treviño, who called for such a plan in 2016, provided the following statement:
"Lighting plays a vital role with regard to public safety, accessibility, place-making and our quality of life. It is with much excitement that I announce the approval of a contract with Alderson and Associates to develop San Antonio's first Downtown Lighting Master Plan.
Next, Alderson and Associates will work with the King William and Lavaca neighborhoods as well as Downtown stakeholders to develop a plan that will serve as a guide for better illuminating corridors and neighborhoods across the city.
I am grateful for the help of Paula Gold Williams and John Leal with CPS Energy. The financial support provided by CPS Energy was instrumental to the creation of the Downtown Lighting Master Plan.
Today's vote is only the first step to creating a lighting plan for the entire city and the next step in creating a City by Design."
