Reaction is mixed to the latest plan to 'Reimagine the Alamo.'  The first proposal, which included an idea to build a plexiglass wall around Alamo Plaza.  Bryan Preston with the General Land Office said it's make or break time.  He also said that this project is a once in a lifetime opportunity to do right by the Alamo, many plans have come and gone, this is the time to do it right.

The plan calls for getting rid of the First Amendment Zone, the area in front of the Alamo where anyone can hold a protest, and move it to an undisclosed location. 

There are much more controversial aspects to the new proposed plan, which includes closing down several major streets, and the least popular of all is the plan to move a monument.

If approved, the overhaul will be done by 2023.
