Laredo Binational Park Project Delegation travel to San Antonio

Gene Lindgren, LEDC President & CEO, traveled with the Laredo delegation to San Antonio to meet with Mayor of San Antonio Ron Nirenberg on the Binational Park Project in Laredo and also with San Antonio Riverwalk Authority representatives for best practices and lessons learned.

Valuable information was gathered as the San Antonio authorities are assisting with the structure of the Binational River Park initiative in our Los Dos Laredos community. 

The trip also included a lunch meeting with The Pearl San Antonio representatives, City of San Antonio Officials, and former Texas State Secretary Hope Andrade on mixed-used buildings, river authority role, timelines, structure, and commercial opportunities brought with their revitalization.  The day was capped off with a private barge tour of Riverwalk including the developing Museum Reach areas.
