“Tobin Talk” News & Updates – June 14, 2018

Good morning neighbors! 

June is Pride Month, and Tobin Hill is lucky to be home to Crockett Park where Pride San Antonio is hosting this year’s LGBTQ PRIDE Bigger Than Texas Festival and Parade. The Festival is from 11am to 7pm, Saturday, June 30th. The Parade begins at 9:00 PM at Dewey Place and N. Main Ave. See the event details below, and follow the links for more information!

Last week about 40 neighbors gathered for the June THCA Second Friday Social. We welcomed 4 new members at the event! Thanks to the Schell’s for hosting. We look forward to July’s Social at Larkin & Rachel’s home!

There are quite a few events coming up in the next few weeks around the neighborhood with lots of opportunity for neighborhood engagement and input.

If you’re interested in infill development, you won’t want to miss this Saturday’s Infill Development Seminar at Lift Fund. City representatives will be presenting the proposed new IDZ ordinance to the public for the first time, and will be taking community input.

Next week Garrett Phillips, with the City of San Antonio’s Planning Department will be meeting with Tobin Hill about the Midtown Regional Center. This meeting will be focused specifically on our neighborhood. Community input is encouraged, so please come and join the conversation. Bring your neighbor!
