Event Details

San Antonio’s Parks and Public Works departments are determined to restore or recreate historic features at Brackenridge Park within a new development vision, including a performance plaza. Their vision, however, has run into extended controversy over their claimed needs to remove towering heritage trees from the San Antonio River’s headwaters and forcefully evict migratory birds from the park. Though caught lying repeatedly on key elements of the bond-funded project, COSA staff have persevered and are are now taking their proposal for the first phase of the project to the Texas Historical Commission for state approval. Roughly 50 trees would be removed to make way in this first phase, including some towering oaks.

This meeting was originally set for Feb. 1, but rescheduled.

Here is the meeting agenda.
