The City of Cibolo has been looking at growing mobility needs in the area for more than a decade through collaborations with TxDOT and the Alamo Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (AAMPO), and public engagement efforts with city stakeholders and residents through many studies and master planning efforts.
- In 2006, the City incorporated mobility needs into the Cibolo Future Land Use Map and Future Thoroughfare Plan, and Capital Improvement Plan.
- In 2014, Cibolo residents passed Proposition 1 to allocate funds for roadway improvements on FM 1103.
- In 2016, the Cibolo Comprehensive Master Plan recognized the demand for north-south mobility and connectivity needs.
- In 2016, TxDOT announced plans and funding to improve FM 1103.
To build off the mission set forth in Proposition 1 to improve mobility and traffic safety in Cibolo, and to address local concerns for north-south mobility and connectivity, the City decided to look at an innovate way to deliver mobility solutions through a public/private partnership.
In 2016, the City Council commissioned a Blue Ribbon Committee to review a privately funded parkway project. To ensure public engagement and involvement in the process, the Blue Ribbon Committee was comprised of local leaders and residents to study the Cibolo Parkway project. After several meetings, the committee provided City Council with its recommendation to advance the Cibolo Parkway project as a solution to help address the city’s mobility needs and future growth.
The Cibolo Parkway project understands how important public engagement and public information is to delivering a successful project for all and will engage many modes of communications with local residents, businesses and stakeholders. Efforts will include public meetings, presentations and public information provided during the feasibility study and throughout design and construction. The project website will be just one of the many avenues used to communicate and provide updated information to local residents.
