1604 will be totally deadlocked. There will be 1 giant school district. Any one without a computer or cell phone will be considered disturbed and put away in camps. There will be a squatter’s city outside Stone Oak area with people that lost their homes due to foreclosure. The Spurs will finally win another Championship. … The Chinese government will own most of the buildings downtown and they will make a restaurant out of the Alamo. There will be no more droopy pants; everyone will wear the same uniform. — Michael Knott

 

 

We will continue to be a very diverse culture. Because of this diversity we will be a center for many types of customer service jobs, as many of our residents will be bilingual. … Public schools will become smaller. No more big schools, as we see a return to several smaller campuses. — James Hope

 

 

Traffic will come to a halt, the roads will be full of holes, everything will be gang-tagged. — Robin James

 

Solar is on almost all rooftops and many building sides. I especially like the free parking throughout the city since solar roof topped parking buildings & lots generate funds for their owners or the city of SA. Also, we’ll be recharging our solar-roofed electric cars in these lots. With citywide free wi-fi keeping communication going, we will be plugged in and communicating positively on top of events. We will be a 24-hour city, rather like NYC, but more intimate. The new automated hovercraft (AHCs) are a favorite of boomers such as myself who no longer have driver’s licenses. It is thrilling to travel between the skyscrapers built during the sustainable energy boom of 2017. Plants thrive everywhere, especially orchids, due to constant compost games. The river is crystal clear, a favorite destination of fishing hobbyists. The blur of ethnicities continues. Spanish is one of the main languages spoken here, as are English, Chinese, and Urdu. Literacy is not quite 100 percent, but close, since the paid boomer-mentor program kicked in. … Best of all Texas is #1 nationally in education, safe Angel-patrolled streets, … and #50 in teen pregnancy. — Alice Canestaro

 

 

The creative community here is growing and the future will bring artists, musicians, and filmmakers from all over the world to make creative work collaboratively. This is already happening and I can imagine it getting better over the next couple of decades. Arts and media organizations like Local 782 are inspiring action and educating creative people in San Antonio, encouraging them to do big things with their ideas. Record labels, local touring bands, and production companies will enjoy success and recognition. I’m optimistic. — Carly Garza
