Open meeting on Austin Convention Center expansion

Monday, February 20, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

One of the options for expanding the Austin Convention Center would incorporate the old Palm School campus into the project. The convention center is 25 years old and has been in need of more square footage for some time. The Palm School was an elementary and high school from 1902 to 1980, and before that, in the Republic of Texas days, served as an armory and military base. On Saturday, the city and Travis County will host an open meeting to get public feedback on that specific proposal and the expansion plans in general. The meeting will take place on Saturday, Feb. 25, at 10 a.m. in the Austin Convention Center (500 East Cesar Chavez, Room 9ab).
