Spread This Idea

Where

Virtually anywhere on Houston Street, the old Solo Serve building, the old Joske's building, Commerce Street from City Hall west. Look around -- you'll see abandone storefronts.

My idea to improve this place

Give tax breaks to retail chains to establish stores downtown. All that's down there now are restaurants, bars and T-shirt shops for tourists.

So that people could... 

Shop, thus having a reason to go downtown for something besides going to a restaurant, bar or T-shirt shop.

Because I want San Antonio to be...

A place for San Antonians, not just for tourists.
