On Tuesday evening, the group working to “reimagine" the Alamo and its surrounding plaza finally unveiled its major redesign for the iconic monument in a public meeting. The goal: return a sense of “reverence” to the historic mission-turned-battlefield. Some of the suggestions — like blocking off Alamo Street from traffic, removing the flashy tourist shops that face the Alamo, and banning protests from the Alamo square — were already revealed in a December presentation to the city council.
