Welcome to the home page for the San Jacinto Neighborhood Plan. The City of Amarillo, in partnership with Potter County, managed the process as a part of the Neighborhood Planning Initiative. This is the third plan to result from the partnership. The plans are designed to build organizational capacity, form consensus for goals and strategies among stakeholders, and provide a roadmap for future public and private reinvestment. The San Jacinto Plan kicked off in March 2019 and is expected to be presented to City Council for adoption in February 2020.
The final public event was an open house to review the draft plan on Tuesday, January 14, 2020. This event celebrated almost a year of effort on behalf of the neighborhood. The process has included four other public meetings, eight advisory committee meetings, a business owner survey and 16 focus group meetings with other city departments and partner organizations. Over 300 people have participated in the outreach efforts.
An implementation meeting to discuss the formation of a neighborhood association is scheduled for 6:00 PM, Thursday, February 6th, at the Rehrer Center at San Jacinto Academy. Anyone interested in being involved in a leadership board or project committee is welcome to attend.

The City of Amarillo solicited applications for an advisory committee that will serve as the community’s stewards for the San Jacinto Neighborhood Plan. The committee includes stakeholders who represent a balanced mix of roles within the neighborhood and broader community, including: neighborhood residents, property owners, business owners, non-profit leaders, religious leaders, school representatives, historic preservation advocates/historians, advocates for people with disabilities and others. The committee met monthly throughout the plan process.

|Public Engagement Plan|
The City of Amarillo, with consultant Urban Milestones, developed a public engagement plan in order to provide a framework for how interested residents, property owners, business owners, and other stakeholders could participate in the process. It was designed to bring people together to problem-solve, deliberate, and cooperatively decide how to proceed with complex problems.
