VIEWSHEDS - 2nd Public Input Meeting

Event date: 3/5/2018 6:00 PM

District 7 Councilwoman Ana E. Sandoval and District 2 Councilman William “Cruz” Shaw recently submitted a Council Consideration Request to initiate the process to consider additional San Antonio landmarks for viewshed protection and to enable the establishment of potential Viewshed Protection Districts. The CCR also directs OHP staff to study additional views and vistas of historic places, landmarks, and cultural resources for consideration for viewshed protection.

OHP is currently gathering public input regarding the locations and designs of potential new Viewshed Protection Districts. These districts are an important tool in protecting the scenic quality and unique identity of our city!

We invite you to attend a 2nd Public Meeting taking place on Monday, March 5, 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm, in the Board Room at 1901 S Alamo. City staff will present the results of previous public input and draft UDC Amendments.

Can’t attend a meeting? Your input is still important to us! Please take time to email your comments to Written comments will be documented on the project website

In February, we launched an online visual survey to assess potential viewsheds for eligibility. Using the most popular photos collected by the public, the survey is the next, critical step in evaluating potential new viewshed protection districts. As proposed, potential viewshed protection districts will be evaluated based on their demonstration of 1) An Iconic Snapshot, 2) Cultural Ties, and 3) Value to Urban Planning efforts. The survey will be available through March 9. TAKE THE SURVEY...
