The city of San Antonio readies to start implementation of SA Tomorrow, the new comprehensive plan.
“What makes a comprehensive plan effective is whether or not we implement it,” Councilman Ron Nirenberg said.
He said there’s some uncertainty as implementation gets underway.
“Where plans have failed, they have failed when it turns from planning to action,” he said.
He said oversight of this process is an unknown.
“I’m comfortable with having voted for the plan,” Councilman Joe Krier said. “The test is how do we implement the plan, what does that cost, and how fast do we get that done.”
One concern, Krier said, “is the discovery after the vote that the city is going to be spending a couple million dollars in year one to hire additional staff to implement the plan.”
