CITY OF ALAMO HEIGHTS
POLICE DEPARTMENT
CITY COUNCIL AGENDA MEMORANDUM
TO: Mayor and City Council
FROM: Rick Pruitt, Police Chief
SUBJECT: Discussion and possible action on an Ordinance amending Section 18-147,
Schedule B (1)(4), of the Code of Ordinances to create a new three-way stop
intersection on Tuxedo Avenue at the intersection with Columbine Street.
DATE: May 28, 2024
SUMMARY
Staff has received a request to create an all-way stop intersection by installing stop signs
for eastbound and westbound traffic on Tuxedo Avenue where intersects Columbine
Street.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
General information concerning the Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street intersection:
• Tuxedo Avenue – 30 feet in width, 100% residential, front driveways, no sidewalks,
no streetlight, no traffic control device for both east and westbound thru traffic;
• Columbine Street – 29 feet in width, 100% residential, side driveways to corner
homes, no sidewalks, clear corner vision; stop sign in place for Columbine Street
traffic at the intersection with Tuxedo Avenue;
• The proposed “three-way stop” designation for Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street
consistent with one other intersection (West Fair Oaks) designated as “four-way stop”
between Tuxedo Avenue and West Elmview Drive;
• Other factors to be considered
o High school children use Tuxedo Avenue to walk or ride bicycles to a
near-by high school during peak morning hour traffic periods
o No accidents reported in past 10 years
o No adverse impacts to near-by streets anticipated
o Signage and poles will replace existing signage and poles
The Police Department conducted a twenty-four (24) hour traffic speed and volume study
of Tuxedo Avenue at the intersection with Columbine Street on a week day when school
was in session. The study provided data related to the speeds and volume of traffic on
both streets. The following table contains the relevant data gathered from the traffic study
of Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street.
200 blk. Tuxedo (all) Columbine
total vehicles 2,923 203
average speed 19 mph 16 mph
10 mph pace speed 16-25 mph 15-24 mph
number in pace 2,120 137
percentage in pace 72% 67%
95th
percentile 26 mph 24 mph
Typically, the driving factors for an any all-way stop intersection include a combination
of traffic volume, vehicle speeds, accident history, vision obstructions and pedestrian
traffic. While some of these factors are absent, we acknowledge Tuxedo Avenue is a
pedestrian route to and from the Alamo Heights High School campus and a traffic light-
controlled crosswalk is available from Tuxedo Avenue to cross Broadway to the campus.
PROPOSED ACTION
An Ordinance amending Section 18-147, Schedule B (1)(4), of the Code of Ordinances to
create a new three-way stop intersection on Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street, north,
northeast and southwest corners.
POLICY ANALYSIS
The request for consideration of new stop intersections is consistent with the Texas
Transportation Code Section 542.202 and the City of Alamo Heights Code of Ordinances
Section 18-98 “Stop Intersections” providing that the City Council may designate any
street intersection as a stop intersection and designate the streets upon which vehicles
shall stop before entering such intersection.
COORDINATION
• Letters were mailed to all addresses in the 100 & 200 blocks of Tuxedo Avenue
asking for input into the proposal and making notification of the City Council
meeting on May 28, 2024.
• The City Manager has reviewed this proposal, and the City Attorney prepared the
proposed Ordinance.
• Public Works personnel will assume responsibility for installing the sign poles and
stop signs.
• The Ordinance will be published in the San Antonio Express News in accordance with
applicable law and posted on the City webpage.
FISCAL IMPACT
• Purchase and erect two new stop signs - $325
• Traffic survey - $552
• Cost to advertise in the SA Express-News - $460

BACKGROUND INFORMATION General information concerning the Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street intersection: • Tuxedo Avenue – 30 feet in width, 100% residential, front driveways, no sidewalks, no streetlight, no traffic control device for both east and westbound thru traffic; • Columbine Street – 29 feet in width, 100% residential, side driveways to corner homes, no sidewalks, clear corner vision; stop sign in place for Columbine Street traffic at the intersection with Tuxedo Avenue; • The proposed “three-way stop” designation for Tuxedo Avenue and Columbine Street consistent with one other intersection (West Fair Oaks) designated as “four-way stop” between Tuxedo Avenue and West Elmview Drive; • Other factors to be considered o High school children use Tuxedo Avenue to walk or ride bicycles to a near-by high school during peak morning hour traffic periods o No accidents reported in past 10 years o No adverse impacts to near-by streets anticipated o Signage and poles will replace existing signage and poles The Police Department conducted a twenty-four (24) hour traffic speed and volume study of Tuxedo Avenue at the intersection with Columbine Street on a week day when school was in session.

COORDINATION • Letters were mailed to all addresses in the 100 & 200 blocks of Tuxedo Avenue asking for input into the proposal and making notification of the City Council meeting on May 28, 2024. • The City Manager has reviewed this proposal, and the City Attorney prepared the proposed Ordinance. • Public Works personnel will assume responsibility for installing the sign poles and stop signs.
  • 3. • The Ordinance will be published in the San Antonio Express News in accordance with applicable law and posted on the City webpage.
