The first public meeting on plans to renovate Maverick Plaza, which was held earlier this week at the Central Library, didn’t reveal any new details. More than 100 people
WHERE THINGS STAND
WHAT’S BEING PROPOSED
The city is hosting a public meeting tomorrow night on a $12 million plan to transform Maverick Plaza at La Villita into San Antonio’s next culinary destination.
The plan adds three new restaurants to the plaza—a Mexican, German and Spanish themed—and demolishes non-historic structures, such as the 1970s limestone walls, while adding restaurant space.
The meeting is scheduled for 6-8 p.m. Tuesday at the Central Library, 600 Soledad St., and will provide attendees an overview of the plan and an opportunity to sound off on “some of the design features within Maverick Plaza,” according to the city.
After 5 p.m., parking is available for free in the Centra Library garage.
This is the first meeting for the project, which is intended to draw more visitors to Maverick Plaza year-round, as opposed to the occasional foot traffic the public space receives as an event venue.
The public meeting will be the first for the project. In December 2017, the City Council approved a 49-year lease of the plaza to Hernandez.
