Story by the San Antonio Business Journal
Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush will join State Sen. José Menendez and State Rep. Diego Bernal later this week to unveil new details on how the state will spend $32 million in funding for the preservation and development of San Antonio’s most notable landmark, the Alamo.
This is the most money the General Land Office has ever received for the Alamo. San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor and Bexar County Commissioner Tommy Calvertalso will be on hand to discuss the funding at a news conference on Sept. 2.
As previously reported, state and local officials are working together to develop a comprehensive vision for the Alamo Plaza Historic District and the Alamo complex. Texas lawmakers shifted control of the Alamo to the General Land Office back in 2011.
Part of the money will be used to develop a new museum and visitor center as part of the Alamo’s development.
This is an ongoing story that will be updated as new information becomes available.
