The City of San Antonio’s 2012-2017 Bond proposal focuses on the City’s core functions and basic infrastructure needs. On September 15, 2011, City Council approved the allocation of $596 million to four infrastructure categories:
- $340 million for Streets/Bridges/Sidewalks
- $130 million for Drainage
- $65 million for Parks
- $61 million for Facilities/Community Initiatives
Additionally, four Community Bond Committees (made up of 2 chairs and 3 appointed individuals per Council district – for a total of 128 citizens across all 4 categories) were created to serve as advisory boards for city-wide input and to analyze potential projects to recommend to City Council for inclusion in the proposed 2012 Bond program.
