Council OKs rezoning, plans to spur transit-oriented development

The San Antonio City Council approved a land use and zoning change Thursday for a 4-acre site along the planned route of VIA’s Advanced Rapid Transit (ART) system. 

Located near the Shearer Hills and Ridgeview neighborhoods, half a mile from VIA’s existing North Star Transit Center, the property is slated for a mixed residential and retail development. 

The land use amendment and rezoning, requested by a local developer, comes amid the council’s recent focus on transit-oriented developments and making it easier for such projects to be built.
