It was originally built to serve as a theater for the 1968 Worlds Fair and it’s days are numbered.
The John H Wood Federal Courthouse has been plagued by problems from mold, asbestos, poor water quality, even pest control issues.
Congressman Henry Cuellar had a strong role in getting the funding to build a new Federal Courthouse in San Antonio and on Wednesday, the city said thank you.
The Congressman was presented with a framed artists rendering of the new courthouse during a ceremony attended by several city leaders.
Cuellar says “We’re only just a few years away from actually having this dream that everybody worked on so hard…to actually get it done.”
Mayor Ivy Taylor says getting the finding for the project took a tremendous team effort from the city, the county and the Congressional Delegation.
