story is about Alamodome, but it has to do with the transformation of the Municipal Auditorium into a performing arts center.

The City of San Antonio will transfer control of the downtown Municipal Auditorium to the Bexar County Performing Arts Center Foundation as soon as late next year. The private nonprofit will own and operate the historic structure and plans to transform the 4,800-seat venue into a new performing arts center.

That transition will leave the Alamo City without a mid-sized indoor concert venue. But officials with the City of San Antonio are working now to try and sell promoters on a smaller Alamodome seating plan in hopes of retaining and growing that mid-sized concert business.
