Time: 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Location: UTSA Westside Community Center
Number of Attendees: 9 Attendees
After a break from meeting with the committee, the team gave a quick overview of the project status and focused the meeting on the neighborhood's public realm.
After talking about many options for the future public realm of Alazan Apache, we asked the committee to place stickers where improvements need to be made to make Alazan-Apache public realm safer and better.
The team gave a presentation showing examples at different sizes of the neighborhood to show how the neighborhood could look like. These sizes varied from the neighborhood, courtyards, to private resident spaces.
We heard great suggestions and comments from the committee on how we can achieve an improved public realm.
