Why does San Antonio only use one type of sidewalk? Do we really need a 24-hour public restroom Downtown? Can we lower the city's temperature (and improve its air quality) just by changing the color of its roofs?

Those questions (and more, of course) come up in this week's CurrentCast, featuring Councilman Roberto Treviño. Treviño represents District 1, which includes much of Downtown and the north-central part of the city. He's an architect by trade, and we talk with him about how that perspective frames his approach to public service (although his Fiesta medal, which is in the shape of a sidewalk, should give you a hint).
