With the opening of our country’s first all-digital public library, BiblioTech, the Mission Park Pavilions, the Mission Reach of the San Antonio River and almost 13 youth sports complexes including the new Wheatley Heights Sports Complex. I am proud to have led these efforts which improve our community and strengthen our economy, all while holding the property tax at the same rate.
Bibliotech and Rolling Readers
Judge Wolff created Bibliotech, the nation’s first all-digital public library, to provide literacy and digital training opportunities to all Bexar County residents. With kiosks in dozens on public schools, military installations, and transit centers, all Bexar County residents have access to a vast collection of downloadable books, magazines, movies, and other media are available or free on tablets loaned by Bibliotech.
There are three Bibliotech locations, two or which are co-located with public housing facilities. Bibliotechs have had over 500,000 individual visitors.
The organization is taking literacy mobile by providing wifi hotspots on seven San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) buses. This Rolling Readers program turns bus drivers into reading captains who understand each month’s theme and the content available on the bus and the devices provided.
The Alameda Theater opened in 1949 as a Mexican-American entertainment complex. Over the years, the beautiful theater has fallen into disrepair. Through a partnership with Bexar County, the City of San Antonio, Texas Public Radio, and the Cortez Family, the Alameda will once again become a world-class venue for hosting stage productions with a 1000 seat capacity.
San Pedro Creek
During San Antonio’s 300th birthday, San Pedro Creek’s first phase of restoration opened to great public enthusiasm. The lights were turned on at sunset and a digital replication of the nighttime sky of May 5, 1718 illuminated the tunnel inlet. The goals of this project are restoration of habitat, flood control, and celebrating our history. The $142 million Frost Tower is being built along the banks of the San Pedro. This linear park will help it attract tenants, encourage economic development, and entertain local families for generations to come.
The Tobin Center
Since the Tobin Center opened in 2014, it has become a leader in nonprofit arts and is deeply committed to providing the community with access to professional arts and high-quality arts education opportunities. It is the home of the San Antonio Symphony, Ballet San Antonio and Opera San Antonio. The Tobin has hosted 1.6 million guests and annually provides free concert experiences to over 37000 children. POLLSTAR has ranked the Tobin as one of the top theaters of the entire world.
Hot Wells Conservancy
In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, along South Presa, stood a luxury spa build around the 104 degrees waters bubbling up from the Edwards Aquifer. Named Hot Wells, this resort attracted the rich and famous for 20 years. After that, the site became a camping ground and a trailer park. Many fires have left most of the building in ruins. But there is still a pool on site and the waters can flow again. With an investment from Bexar County, Hot Wells will be San Antonio’s first cultural park.
Hot Wells Park should create 7.9 million in economic growth, generating 175 local jobs. Additionally, San Antonio will get another beautiful community venue.
Confluence Park is a remarkable project overlooking the convergence of San Antonio River and San Pedro Creek. What was once a CPS storage facility off of Mitchell is now a beautiful park with undulating arches covering an entertainment pavilion surrounded by architectural water features. Confluence Park was funded through a City and County partnership and took just two years to build. Children from disadvantaged schools enjoy field trips to the Park funded by the San Antonio River Foundation to learn about Texas ecosystems and pollinators like the monarch butterfly. There is even a Sunday morning yoga class in the pavilion most Sundays.
