The Avenida Guadalupe NCR District consists of over 50 existing businesses that front Guadalupe Street from San Marcos to Zarzamora. This commercial corridor lies within the heart of the Westside of San Antonio. The Avenida Guadalupe Association has devoted the past 30 years to beautifying this neighborhood and restoring the vibrancy and vitality of this community. In October 2006, Avenida Guadalupe joined the City of San Antonio’s NCR Program. This partnership was designed to preserve, protect, and revitalize the economic and social fabric of Guadalupe Street, an inner city, commercial corridor in the heart of the Avenida Guadalupe Neighborhood.
St. Mary's runs from General McMullen to Bandera, bordering on Culebra and Hill Crest. The per capita income is 40% lower than the city average with unemployment at 9%. The St. Mary's University Neighborhood Revitalization Project was established in 2007 in response to a call-to action by University president Charles L. Cotrell, Ph.D., for the University to be more actively involved in community outreach, development and improvement, and to collaborate with neighbors to revitalize and beautify the areas surrounding the University.
