The Houston Street Initiative

Since our founding, Centro San Antonio has served as the city’s not-for-profit downtown partnership, convening people and aligning interests to create a more prosperous center city. Centro remains committed to strengthening the Houston Street corridor as it reclaims its status as “San Antonio’s main street.” Activate Houston Street is the culmination of these efforts, an initiative led by Centro to gather feedback from the community to develop a placemaking action plan for the corridor.
