SAN ANTONIO (Aug. 31, 2017) –  Today, the San Antonio City Council formally authorized a $23 million agreement between the City of San Antonio, Bexar County, the Alameda Theater Conservancy and Texas Public Radio (TPR) to renovate the historic Alameda Theater in downtown San Antonio. District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño provided the following statement in response:

“I am glad to see the joint effort to restore the Alameda move forward. San Antonio has a gem in its midst, albeit, a gem in need of polishing. I cannot stress enough how critical it is to preserve culturally significant spaces like the Alameda as they help tell the rich story of our city and serve as reminders and inspiration to future generations.

This joint investment could not be possible without the partnership the City, the County and Texas Public Radio. I would especially like to recognize La Familia Cortez for their long history of involvement in the preservation, protection, and promotion of the Westside. It has been an honor and privilege working with the Cortez Family on Zona Culural and the Alameda Theater projects.”
