City’s Comprehensive Plan

In the Fall of 2008 Comprehensive Plan Neighborhood Meetings were conducted to gather input for the future of Alamo Heights. The meetings were the first part of a concerted effort by City Council and City staff to elicit feedback from citizens regarding their vision of what Alamo Heights should be 15 years from now.

A Community Design Workshop was held on January 17th at the Alamo Heights High School Cafeteria. Over 130 citizens and design professionals attended the workshop in addition to the Mayor, all five council members, and staff. The workshop centered on ten common themes that were identified from the community neighborhood meetings as being of particular interest in terms of the physical design of the community. The ideas from these meetings helped shape the vision used to develop the proposed Comprehensive Plan.

The City presented the draft plan to the community through a series of neighborhood meetings that were held during the week of April 27th at the City Council Chambers. The plan was presented to both the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council early May. It was adopted by the Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday, May 18th and then by City Council on Tuesday, May 26th.

The Comprehensive Plan is posted below. The chapters are individual PDFs and can be viewed separately. A full CD version is available for $2.00 or a hard copy of the plan is available for $37.50 (the cost of color printing) at City Hall.
