In May 2013, the San Pedro Creek Study, also referred to as the Preliminary Engineering Report (PER), was completed. The study explored opportunities for containing the 100-year floodplain, restoring and improving water quality and the creek’s functions, as well as reconnecting people to the community’s storied and historic natural resource.
On February 18, 2014, the Bexar County Commissioners Court, under the leadership of Commissioner Paul Elizondo, entered into an agreement with the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) to begin the design phase of an ambitious $175 million revitalization of a two-mile segment of the creek through downtown. The project limits from north to south begin at IH-35 at the flood tunnel inlet near Fox Tech High School to the confluence with the Alazan/Apache Creeks at IH-35 near the stockyards.
The design phase will build upon the results of the PER and will take approximately 24 months, from February 2014 to March 2016. The 40% design is anticipated in February 2015, 70% design by August 2015, 90% design in January 2016, and 100% design completed by March 2016. Following final design, construction is anticipated to begin in 2016 and be completed in 2018 in celebration of the 300th anniversary of the establishment of the City with extensive public involvement will be included throughout the process.
As part of the Muñoz & Company team I was responsible for presentations, display boards and the design and production of the San Pedro Creek Study.
