SAN ANTONIO (Oct. 11, 2018) - Yesterday, the Planning Commission and the Historic Design Review Commission held a special joint meeting to vote on the Alamo Master Plan. Both citizen committees approved the plan by a margin of 5-1 and 8-1, respectively. Roberto Treviño, City Councilman, Alamo Citizens Advisory Tri-Chair, and member of the Alamo Management Committee, presented the plan to both commissions as well the City Council on Wednesday. Councilman Treviño provided the following statement:
“The Alamo Master Plan has taken yet another step forward because citizens, policy makers, and professionals recognize the positive impact it will have on San Antonio and the State of Texas.
I am grateful to the citizens on the Planning and Historic Design Review Commissions for their thoughtfulness when vetting each of the recommendations. While we have worked quite some time to get to this point, it simply because the process has been deliberate and inclusive.
Thank you to the Mayor and City Council, the State of Texas, the Alamo Endowment, and the Alamo Citizens Advisory Committee for participating in the lengthy presentations yesterday. I look forward to continuing to work with you to bring forward a Master Plan which will tell the complete history of the Alamo.”
