Hays Street Bridge land returned to the people, we’ll see if San Antonio complies!
It would appear that former San Antonio’s City Manager Sculley has been over-ridden. The Texas High Court has ruled against San Antonio in the 7-year legal battle over the Hays Street Bridge land. You will recall that this land was originally donated to the City for a Park. The city accepted the gift.
Yet Ms. Sculley decided that it would be better for a developer to have it for apartment housing. So, despite numerous protests, it was sold to the developer. Naturally, legal battles followed, wasting more of our tax dollars.
Why couldn’t the City just honor the gift as originally agreed to?
Now we’ll see how the City goes about unwinding the transaction with the developer.
