PURPOSE

 

The purpose of this Communication is to amend Leon Valley City Code Chapter 12 Traffic and Vehicles, as per Council direction, to convert Althea Drive to a one-way street.  

 

At the October 3, 2016 City Council meeting, the City Council approved a request from the Hodges Street residents to convert their street to a one-way street. In addition, the Council approved the request from Althea residents to convert Althea to a one-way street, contingent upon approval from the City of San Antonio, and to reduce the speed limit on both Hodges and Althea streets from 30 mph to 20 mph. In order to put the remainder of this plan into action, the Chapter 12 of the City Code must be amended to include Althea as a one-way street.

Social Equity - Providing the citizens with additional safety measures adds to the overall quality of life.

Economic Development - Reducing potential dangers from traffic situations promotes overall health, safety, and welfare image of City, which may attract businesses and new residents.

Environmental Stewardship - Reducing flow through traffic in this area will protect the existing small stream by reducing the amount of pollutants entering the stream, which is then carried to creeks and rivers, thereby improving water quality.

 

FISCAL IMPACT
