Cmr. Bush applauds San Antonio Planning Commission and Historic and Design Review Commission vote of approval on Alamo plan
SAN ANTONIO — Today, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush released the following statement following the San Antonio Planning Commission and Historic and Design Review Commission voted in favor of closing streets surrounding the Alamo complex, conceptual approval of the Alamo Plan design goals, and final approval to repair and reassemble the Cenotaph.
“The Alamo and the 1836 Battlefield footprint deserve to be preserved and restored for all Texans to enjoy and understand,” said Commissioner George P. Bush. “With over 200 public meetings and presentations statewide, the Alamo plan has been discussed, debated, and extensively reviewed. Without action, the Alamo will eventually crumble into history. The design plan will create a free and open environment for all Texans to enjoy and educate themselves on the history of our Texian and Tejano defenders who fought valiantly for liberty and freedom. The Alamo is the most historic icon in the state of Texas, representing the core values this great state was founded upon, including liberty, freedom and independence. I look forward to the final vote on the lease agreement and street closures by the San Antonio City Council on October 18th. The time to save the Alamo is now.”
