Residents of upper Government Hill gained a huge victory Thursday when the City Council voted to postpone voting on a zoning change that would convert several residential lots along Interstate 35, near one of Fort Sam Houston's gates, into a commercial use.

What transpired was a huge come from behind victory, with District 2 Councilwoman Jada Andrews-Sullivan having already made up her mind to vote in favor of the rezoning.

Treviño and Sandoval asked Andrews-Sullivan to consider a continuance, because they said they had been bombarded by emails from their constituents worried the Government Hill case would set a precedent.
