So that people could...
Have more places to be outdoors in the shade. Have a clear and friendly pedestrain route to connect the Hays Street Bridge/Dignowity Hill to the rest of downtown and to the Riverwalk 4 blocks away.
Because I want San Antonio to be...
A seamless and beautiful pedestrian experience flowing from the Riverwalk out to the historic neighborhoods around it, not walled off by highways, and with lots of fun places to be outdoors and comfortable.
