United Nations To Destroy Property Rights of Thousands Around Alamo
UNESCO won’t grant Alamo “World Heritage” status without property restrictions in “buffer zone”
October 31, 2013
In its official statement regarding the United Nations takeover of the Alamo, the Texas General Land Office did not address the restrictions that will be placed on private property surrounding the Alamo once it is named a UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World Heritage Site, even though the official nomination makes it clear that thousands of property owners will be affected.
The GLO’s press release published yesterday never mentioned the loss of property rights in the proposed 4,500+ acre “buffer zone” surrounding the Alamo, which places “complementary legal and/or customary restrictions” on private property within the vicinity of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
“Some folks might think that getting on this [UNESCO World Heritage] list means the U.N. has some sort of influence at the Alamo,” Texas Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson said.
