Council to Decide on Parking for Convention Center

The San Antonio City Council will decide if parking lots are a good idea for the new convention center Thursday morning.

“Well, we have a brand new convention center and a 54,000 square foot ballroom,” the city’s Director of Convention and Sports Facilities Mike Sawaya told KTSA News.

But there’s one glaring problem right now: “we don’t have any dedicated parking for the facility,” he said.

This proposal would bring about 300 parking spaces for the center and the Alamodome.

“The southeast corner, right at the new walkway that connects the Alamodome to the Convention Center, there’ll be two parcels that we convert into about 300 spaces,” Sawaya said.

If approved by the City Council, the plan is to get it done by the middle of November.
