City panel explores landmark desi­gnation for Alamo Stadium

If approved, the desi­gnation would require SAISD to get approval for exterior alte­rations.


SAN ANTONIO - The city's Historic and Design Review commission on Thursday discussed the idea of designating Alamo Stadium a historic landmark.  Under that designation, any exterior improvements or alterations would have to get city approval.


The San Antonio Conservation Society requested that designation after the San Antonio Independent School District school board explored the idea of renovating the stadium for use as a pro soccer venue.  The district has since withdrawn those plans.  The district has not taken a stance on the designation.

"All of the features that really make this a treasure should be preserved and restored to their original beauty," SAISD School Board President Ed Garza told the commission.  "I think where the board has a concern is when it impacts the student use."

If the commission recommends the designation, it must still get approval from the San Antonio City Council.
