"We are very pleased that the mayor has chosen the Downtown Campus as the location for this event," said Jesse T. Zapata, UTSA vice provost for the Downtown Campus. "We have many academic programs that emphasize our connection to the San Antonio community in particular and to urban settings in general. Given its setting and its mission, the Downtown Campus is the ideal site for the mayor to release the final SA2020 report."
SA2020 began in September 2010 and consisted of five public meetings to address three key questions:
The public meetings were chaired by Mayor Julian Castro; Graham Weston, chairman of Rackspace Hosting; Darryl Byrd, managing director of Pearl Brewery; and Sonia Rodriguez, attorney and chairwoman of the Mayor's Commission on the Status of Women.
"The College of Public Policy is honored to serve as co-sponsor of this event, which celebrates a wonderful effort and the beginning of a significant policy initiative for the City of San Antonio," said Francine Romero, associate dean of the UTSA College of Public Policy. "We look forward to working with Mayor Castro on this and future collaborations to make SA2020 goals a reality."
