PRESS RELEASE — Oct 02, 2018

SAN ANTONIO — Today, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush released the following statement after signing a joint resolution with San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg approving the Alamo Master Plan.  The Alamo plan now moves forward, with the State of Texas and City of San Antonio entering negotiations for a 50-year lease, with the option of two 25-year extensions. The lease is set to be approved by the San Antonio City Council on October 18th.

“After four years of historical analysis, debate, and discussion the plan to restore the Alamo to its former dignity will finally become a reality,” said Commissioner Bush. “With the Alamo Executive Committee’s signatures complete, the City of San Antonio and the State of Texas enter into negotiations for a 50-year lease agreement and continue advocating for street closures around the Alamo complex. It is far past time for the Alamo and its heroic defenders to be given proper reverence. I look forward to working together to ensure the shrine of Texas liberty is restored to its former dignity. God Bless Texas and God Bless the Alamo.”
