Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center, 200 East Market Street, San Antonio, TX 78205
San Antonio is a wonderful place to live, work, and play. It is in a dynamic region that is poised for rapid population growth in the future. The Rockefeller Foundation projects that by 2050 the San Antonio urban area will more than double in population. But research shows the enormous social, economic, and environmental costs of uncontrolled or rapid urbanization. “Growth management” consists of public policy initiatives by public agencies and officials to lessen the adverse impacts of urban sprawl. But governments alone can’t achieve these objectives by themselves. Public-private partnerships and public participation are key factors to growth management, and collaboration and coordination between all stakeholders is of paramount importance. That’s the purpose of imagineSanAntonio – to break down the stovepipes of agencies and organizations in San Antonio and bring all stakeholders together to develop a common vision for the future.
