Notice of Public Hearing
PROPOSED NAMING OF
NEW PARK ADJACENT TO MAVERICK CREEK NEIGHBORHOOD
TO DAN MARKSON PARK LOCATED AT
CORNER OF BABCOCK RD. AND W. HUEBNER RD.
• The City of San Antonio will conduct a public hearing to name the new park adjacent to Maverick Creek neighborhood at corner of Babcock Rd. and W. Huebner Rd. to Dan Markson Park on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, as required by Article XVI of Chapter 6 of the City Code. Comments, oral or written, concerning the naming of the park from all interested citizens will be considered.
Councilman Manny Pelaez, District 8 submitted a recommendation to name the new park adjacent to Maverick Creek neighborhood to Dan Markson Park. The naming of the park is to recognize Dan Markson’s immense contributions to the San Antonio community.
For over 30 years, Mr. Markson worked tirelessly to bring affordable housing developments to communities. He was Executive Vice President of Development for The NRP Group and co-founder of the Texas office of The NRP Group since 2003. He served in various capacities in his field including as the national director of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) for the Greater San Antonio Builders Association, on the board of the Federal Government Affairs and Housing Finance Committee of the NAHB, and as a Director and President of the Texas Association of Affordable Housing Providers. He also served as State Director of the Texas Association of Builders (TAB) and past Chairman of the TAB Multifamily Council.
Outside of his work with affordable housing, he was equally committed to his community. From his work supporting the Cesar E. Chavez Legacy & Educational Foundation, Interfaith, and Charlesview Inc., to his service as a board member for the Southwest School of Art, he tirelessly fought for the marginalized and voiceless in our community.
Faith also played an important role in Mr. Markson’s life, underscored by his work in the Jewish community. Having served on the board of Temple Beth El San Antonio and the San Antonio Jewish Family Services, anyone who encountered him quickly discovered the pride he had for his heritage. He was recently presented with Chabad San Antonio’s 2018 Distinguished Community Service Award.
• The hearing will be held on Tuesday, August 6, 2019, at 6:30 p.m. at the Igo Library, Meeting Rm. B, at 13330 Kyle Seale Pkwy, San Antonio, Texas 78249.
• The public may submit their opinion for or against by mail to the address below. Only those responses postmarked on or prior to the public hearing date shall be considered.
