SAN ANTONIO (April 20, 2017)— The City Council approved today a proposal by District 7 City Councilman Cris Medina to designate a portion of Woodlawn Ave. as a memorial to the late Archbishop Patrick Flores. 

“I want to thank the residents of our community for their input and my colleagues on the City Council who voted unanimously with what I’m certain will be the first of many honors Archbishop Flores will receive,” said Medina. “I’m humbled we’re able to honor this great spiritual leader with this memorial while leaving the addresses of area businesses and residences unaffected.” 

The memorial designation will cover Woodlawn Ave. from Zarzamora to Bandera Rd. and does not involve any name change.
