Vocal public support for Brackenridge Park’s heritage trees has so far blocked San Antonio from carrying out a controversial plan to destroy more than 100 of them. On May 24, San Antonio’s Parks and Recreation and Public Works Department will hold its third meeting for the public to learn and discuss the fate of the trees and the broader Brackenridge 2017 Bond project. However, due to the public’s anger and frustration with the previous meetings’ format, the city is now calling for a fourth meeting for public input.
