SAN ANTONIO (May 22, 2018) – The City of San Antonio is seeking applicants to serve as alternates on the Zoning Board of Adjustment (ZBOA). This board hears and decides appeals where it is alleged there is error in any order, requirement, decision or determination made by an administrative official in the enforcement of the Unified Development Code (UDC), Chapter 35 of the San Antonio, Texas Code of Ordinances.

The board may also authorize variances from the provisions of the UDC. The board functions as a quasi-judicial board and its members are prohibited from discussions about pending cases outside of the formal meeting. The Board requires a quorum of at least nine to convene. 

Meetings are generally held on the first and third Monday of each month at 1 p.m. and typically last four hours.  Members are compensated $20 for each seated meeting. Positions will remain open until Monday, June 7, 2018.

The next JNA meeting will be on June 11th at 7PM.

We meet at the Jefferson United Methodist Church, Donaldson and Wilson Streets, across from Thomas Jefferson High School.

We'll vote on the proposed revisions for our by-laws.

Refreshments will be served.

The JNA newsletter will no longer be added to our website. A generic version will be available that includes information about our group and a membership application.

San Antonio has not experienced drought restrictions since October 2017, but despite the recent rain, the 10-day average at San Antonio's monitoring well has dropped to 658.5, requiring a return to Stage 1 water restrictions effective Monday, May 21.

Per City ordinance, City Manager Sheryl Sculley in consultation with Robert R. Puente, president/CEO of San Antonio Water System, declared Stage 1 management rules are in effect.

Stage 1 of the city's drought plan is triggered when the 10-day average of the Edwards Aquifer at the J-17 monitoring well drops to 660 feet or below. According to the city's Aquifer Management Plan ordinance, coming out of drought stages can be considered 15 days after the aquifer is above the trigger.

"Despite the cooler weather and rain we've received this year the region's water use has driven aquifer levels to drop," Puente said. "We have an ample supply of water from the Edwards and several other sources, but state law requires us to cut back on pumping when the Edwards Aquifer reaches certain levels."

When in Stage 1, outdoor watering with a sprinkler or irrigation system is allowed only before 11 a.m. and after 7 p.m., one day per week, based on the last number of your address:

0 or 1 – Monday
2 or 3 – Tuesday
4 or 5 – Wednesday
6 or 7 – Thursday
8 or 9 – Friday

Watering days begin and end at midnight; overnight watering is not allowed. Water waste, such as water running down the street, is prohibited year-round. However, watering with a handheld hose is still allowed any day, any time.

SAWS offers its water customers $100 or $200 coupons to replace water-intensive grass with drought-tolerant garden beds or permeable patios. The coupons are available through May 31 so customers should act quickly to take advantage of the online offer at GardenStyleSA.com/coupons.

WHAT IS THE COMPREHENSIVE PLAN?

SA Tomorrow is the City's 25-year framework that guides future growth and development. Adopted by City Council in August 2016, it addresses a wide range of topics that affect how we experience the city. These topics include land use, economic development, housing, environmental protection, cultural and historic preservation, transportation, and more. The City's Planning Department has launched an effort to begin implementing the SA Tomorrow Comprehensive Plan to ensure that it remains responsive to the needs of the community.
