Spread This Idea

Where

all street intersection islands like the island on the west side of San Pedro at Oblate. It is so stark, patched, unattractive for locals and tourists.

My idea to improve this place

is to begin a tree planting and pavers laying campaign for ALL unattractive corners in SA so that we could inspire a PRIDE OF OWNERSHIP for locals. We now have good ideas on trees that can survive.

So that people could... 

feel a pride of ownership and have SA citizens all be a part of making our city beautiful like other tourist cities people want to RETURN to. As international vacationers, we see beautiful, clean cities that are waaaay larger than SA and almost as hot, too. How do they do it?

Because I want San Antonio to be...

NOT remembered as only having oven-like temperature with dirty streets. Trees and greenery have been measurably proven to lower a city's temps by several degrees. Let's get a tree planting program going with a lot of publicity like Los Angeles did.

Bring back in modern form the historic Bat Roosts that I remember seeing in the Olmos Basin when I was a kid. Dr. Campbell's bat roosts could be restored in open spaces across SA.

Many people walk along this area for exercise. This idea would include signage telling motorists to watch for pedestrians, and enhanced crossings at busy streets. Distance markers are also required.
