So that people could...
walk by, shop, and feel safe. SInce that area is centrally located to other spots on the river, and many people park at Rivercenter to get to different destinations, this is a spot that makes an impression on people-positive or negative.
Because I want San Antonio to be...
A safe place for everyone to enjoy and want to come back. I do not always feel safe, especially late at night after a show or dinner. I shouldn't feel afraid in the city I have grown up in. Dallas is clean, open, and inviting. It is "geen" and pet friendly. Other cities across the country have clean and maintained public restrooms that you pay for, but it's worth it.
