Our Neighborhood

I want to personally invite you to our neighborhood and neighborhoods in District 5, where you will find the heart of what San Antonio means for many of its residents. Many, who were raised in our city, have incredible memories of growing up in the Westside and Southside of San Antonio. Our neighborhoods have the design for the kind of modern infrastructure that can transform cities into communities where everyone has the chance to live comfortably. People want to increase and enjoy neighborhood walkability, bike lanes, wider sidewalks, accessible public transportation, and streets designed to calm traffic. Our constituents need affordable housing in neighborhoods that have easy access to stores, eateries, healthcare centers, and pharmacies that meet people's basic needs. They need schools, libraries, and parks where children and families can learn, improve their health, and have fun. Being able to live near places of worship is also an important aspect of living in a vibrant neighborhood. District 5 is home to some of the city's most historic and beautiful sites. It has a unique culture that you will not find anywhere else, and it is kept alive with the help of very kind and loving neighbors. As Councilwoman, my goal is to continue helping District 5 evolve into a part of the city where vibrant neighborhoods and complete streets are standard.
