SAN ANTONIO (May 10, 2018) — Councilman Roberto Treviño applauds the passage of the item authorizing the much-needed and long-overdue renovation of City Hall – including the construction of a fully accessible front entrance to the building.
“Renovations are not simply about cosmetic improvements,” said Treviño. “We are taking a nineteenth century building and bringing it into the twenty-first century. The historic building will see energy efficient upgrades to the building envelope and mechanical systems – providing significant improvements to energy efficiency within a thoughtful space-planned environment.”
In addition to the building renovations, Councilman Treviño is excited about the installation of an accessible front entrance to the building for all people. “I am proud to have partnered with the AIA – San Antonio, Harvey Najim, and especially Gordon Hartman – whose passion for equal access, regardless of special need or disability, inspired this effort.”
“It is fitting in our Tricentennial Year, the City makes this investment in itself, our citizens, and preserving our past for our future.”
