School board meetings only draw crowds when a topic of significant public interest arises, and so it was Monday evening when 21 people spoke in favor of a proposal that would allow two acres of San Antonio Independent School District property near the San Antonio Zoo and Brackenridge Park to be developed as a public parking garage that the zoo, park and district could share.

The proposal is part of a draft Brackenridge Park master plan funded by the City of San Antonio that will be brought before City Council for approval in June.

Zoo officials already believed they had reached a tentative deal with district officials to move forward with the garage project and were in early stages of design that included a memorandum of understanding given to the district.
