City approves changes that could reshape development in San Antonio

HardHatIconSan Antonio’s City Council has put its support behind a new ordinance that could significantly impact future development. Council passed the ordinance with a unanimous vote, amending chapter 35 of the Unified Development Code.

With the vote, Council has adopted provisions incentivizing Low Impact Development, or LID, as a design option for project developers. The vote also updates existing Conservation Subdivision regulations.

According to city officials, the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) submitted amendments in May to change the Unified Development Code by adding LID as a voluntary site design option.

LID promotes improved storm-water management as part of an effort to increase overall water quality through a number of approaches, including a reduction of flood peaks and the use of natural features and engineered solutions that mimic such features.

SARA also submitted amendments in May updating the city’s Conservation Subdivision regulations.
