City Council to receive briefing on Alamo master plan process, next steps

Presentation to include formal introduction of firm chosen

SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio City Council on Wednesday will receive a briefing from representatives of the Alamo Management Committee, the organization overseeing the development of the master plan for the Alamo and its surrounding areas.

The presentation will take place at 2 p.m. in the Municipal Plaza Building, located on West Commerce downtown. 

The presentation will include the formal introduction of the firm chosen to lead the master planning process, Preservation Design Partnership of Philadelphia, PA, and an explanation of the intended approach the master planning team will follow over the next several months.

Gene Powell, chair of the Alamo Management Committee as well as George Skarmaes and Dominique Hawkins of the Preservation Design Partnership will both be in attendance.

The Alamo Management Committee is comprised of two representatives each from the Texas General Land Office, the City of San Antonio and the Alamo Endowment. The three organizations signed a cooperative agreement in October 2015 to jointly undertake the development of a new master plan for the Alamo.

KSAT 12 will have more information throughout the day on this developing story.
