The SA Tomorrow Multimodal Transportation Plan held a virtual town hall meeting on Monday, November 30, 2015, from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. The virtual town hall was an opportunity for citizens to discuss transportation in San Antonio and what makes a great street with several City leaders involved with the SA Tomorrow planning initiative.
People were able to participate via the internet or from one of four viewing sites. While the virtual town hall was an online forum, the viewing sites option allowed people to be part of the event from a location in their community. The following is an audio recording of the virtual town hall meeting.
Our goal is to reach and involve as many people in our great city in the transportation planning process. To that end, we are actively presenting to existing groups and organizations and participating in community events. We have participated in two major events so far and plan to participate in the Fall Siclovia event later this year. To learn more about these events, click on the links below.

The Transportation Matters webinar took place on August 11, 2015 and offered an opportunity for citizens to ask questions and provide input about future transportation challenges, choices, and funding options.
