    “San Antonio Zoning Commission Denies 400 Housing Units At Behest of Neighborhood Association”

    From the article, it seems like the Neighborhood Association was in favor of the change to residential, but the city zoning commission denied the request:

    “In denying the request, zoning commissioners voted against a staff recommendation to approve the change and against approval of the change by the Lone Star Neighborhood Association.”

    “Susan Powers, president of the Lone Star Neighborhood Association, told the Rivard Report on Monday that while parking had become an issue in the area, she liked the idea of the site changing from industrial to residential”

      Thanks. I had misread this portion,

      “In denying the request, zoning commissioners voted against a staff recommendation to approve the change and against approval of the change by the Lone Star Neighborhood Association.”

      And had this quote near the end on my mind when writing the headline,

      “I just think they need to provide enough parking for the residents and their guests,” Powers said. “We just have way too much on-street parking now.”

        To be fair, I was shocked to see a neighborhood association on favor of large multifamily development but unsurprised it all depends on parking.
