SAN ANTONIO – City Councilman Roberto Trevino called the decision to keep the Alamo Cenotaph where it is disappointing Tuesday.
Trevino is also the chair of the Alamo Management Committee, the public-private partnership behind the $450 million plan to renovate Alamo Plaza.
“Obviously, it’s a disappointing day,” Trevino said after the decision was made. “A day where we found a little over six years of work has come to a screeching halt.”
The decision came after the Texas Historical Commission met on Zoom, listened to sometimes emotional testimony and voted against moving the Cenotaph by a 12-2 vote.
Trevino and Congressman Will Hurd, who’s on the Alamo Management Committee also, argued moving the Cenotaph south to in front of the Menger Hotel was crucial to the whole plan to open up the site and restore the mission compound so visitors could get a real sense of what it was like back in 1836 at the time of the battle.
“For example, maybe the THC didn’t fully appreciate or understand one of the biggest elements of the project was to close the road that went over the mission site,” Trevino said. “That is a city process that requires us to close that road down. With this failing today and the project not being executed the way it was prescribed as city council voted in 2018, it puts the whole project in jeopardy.”
It’s also expected to include a world class museum across Alamo Street, where the state now owns three buildings. But critics, including Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, said moving the Cenotaph would be is respectful to the Defenders of the Alamo the monument honors.
Trevino said it’s unclear what happens now, including the city’s lease of the Alamo Plaza to the state.
