Congressman Doggett Talks Tourism and Economic Development

Rep. Lloyd Doggett told SA to DC participants that San Antonio’s Spanish colonial missions aren’t just artistically and historically important, they’re also a source of economic development for the South Side and a magnet for tourists. The effort to expand the San Antonio Missions National Historical Park, he said, was being hampered by a “fanatical belief” by some members of Congress that the federal government should not acquire another inch of land.

Doggett complimented the work of Bexar County and the San Antonio River Authority on the Mission Reach of the river improvements project and said that a proposal to restore San Antonio’s West Side creeks would be another important step for economic development.
