San  Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg today speaks to a group pf policymakers and  corporate executives about a subject near to his heart: fatherhood.Nirenberg  is addressing the state's third annual Texas Fatherhood Summit in  Austin, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.

 The gathering is sponsored by the Texas Department of Family and  Protective Services, and brings together hundreds of public- and  private.sector decision makers interested in supporting fathers by  promoting family-oriented programs and venues.

The mayor tells News Radio 1200 WOAI he'll share examples of how the Alamo City supports families "from  things like Target '90 to S.A.2020, now S.A.Tomorrow, about how we can  build a healthy community - from green spaces, to economic development,  to the way we interact and interface with our educational community."

Nirenberg says communities  can ensure their future viability and vibrancy by incorporating  family-focused elements into planning and design.

"Cities must provide  infrastructure and environmental amenities that foster family  well-being, and that's really the 'true north' for what we do as a city  here in San Antonio," he says. "As fathers, as mothers, as parents, but  also as a community that cares about well-being of our families."
