The study, conducted by Llewelyn-Davies Sahni Consultants, was was further supplemented with an analysis by an interdepartmental technical committee made up of members of the Aviation Department and Planning and Development Services Department. The purpose of the study was to understand current land use issues, develop a land use plan, and recommend additional regulatory tools and incentives to promote compatible land uses beneficial to the airport’s operations and the area’s neighborhoods, economic development, and cultural and environmental resources.
The planning area is approximately 10.2 square miles and is bound by S.E. Military Drive on the north, IH 37 on the east, Loop 410 on the south and Pleasanton Road, Gladnell Avenue and Loleta St. on the west.

The planning area includes Stinson Airport which is contained on a 310-acre site; Brooks City-Base, a bioscience, and biomedical research and technology center on 1,310 acres managed by Brooks Development Authority; and the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park.
