The City of San Antonio is launching a community planning process that culminates in the development of a multi-modal transportation, future land use, economic development, and urban design plan for the Bandera Road Corridor. This will be the first corridor plan developed under the guidance of the SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan that was adopted by the City Council in 2016.
The City, in collaboration with community partners including the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), the City of Leon Valley, and others, will facilitate the planning process and public engagement efforts, develop conceptual elements based on the input received through the public participation efforts and as recommended in the Comprehensive Plan, and prepare recommendations for elements related to multi-modal transportation, future land use, economic development, and urban design.
The Bandera Road plan area is primarily located in
San Antonio, Texas, with an approximate 2 linear
mile area bisecting the City of Leon Valley, Texas.
The Bandera Road Corridor links northwest San
Antonio (just inside Loop 410) and Leon Valley with
Downtown San Antonio via Bandera and Culebra,
connecting many crosstown routes with a direct
path to the city center. The proposed Corridor Plan
length is approximately 6.5 linear miles, and
includes an area within one-half mile around
Bandera Road, from Loop 410 to Loop 1604.
