San Antonians have set the precedent that we will envision the future together every ten years. In the face of a global public health crisis, more than 12,000 San Antonians reaffirmed and strengthened the shared Community Vision through 2030, doubling engagement over the original visioning process in 2010. You can see a fuller picture of who participated on the Community Engagement dashboard.
The Community Data does not offer much real-time data through 2020 because this data largely lags by one-to-two years. The trended data does give critical insight to understanding how San Antonio has made progress—even incrementally—and where institutions across sectors must double down to deliver race-conscious, targeted policies, investments, and services. Bold efforts throughout the last decade prove what San Antonians are capable of achieving when working together toward a shared goal.
To look at indicators as merely moving up or down hides the more complex story of the targeted efforts that moved us closer to the Community Vision over the last decade. Within the overview of each result and indicator, you’ll see room for celebration and learning.
