The Hays Street Bridge Restoration Group sued the city of San Antonio in 2012 alleging that the city had broken a contract to develop donated land adjacent to the bridge into a park.
The city, which has sold the land to Alamo Brewing Company, says the land was never part of the deal to restore the bridge. The trial began yesterday.
Members of the Hays Street Bridge Restoration Group lined the steps of San Antonio City Hall Monday to demand a public vote on the use of the vacant land adjacent to the historic bridge. The group wants a park in the open space, not a brewery.
