Before Getting Started

Before Getting Started

The OHP reviews everything from retaining walls and landscaping to new construction and additions, so before you get started planning your project, be sure to read about the application process. Staff recommendations are based on the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation, the City of San Antonio's Unified Development Code (UDC), and  the City of San Antonio Historic Design Guidelines. These are important resources for all applicants to review prior to starting your project.
