Woodlawn Lake

Preserving Sense of Place at Woodlawn Lake

In early 2019, OHP launched a series of discussions regarding potential zoning overlays for the Woodlawn Lake area. The first meeting was held on Monday, February 4, at the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club. Public feedback from this meeting is provided below.

This initiative stems from the 2017 CCR from District 7 Councilwoman Ana Sandoval to explore viewshed protections for Woodlawn Lake. Following a year of input from the public and analysis through a technical advisory committee, it was recommended to Council that a viewshed may not be the most effective tool for the Woodlawn Lake area and that a zoning buffer, similar to the River Improvement Overlay Districts, should be explored. A Resolution to proceed with an overlay for Woodlawn Lake was approved by Council in December 2018. 

In the coming months, OHP will work with an advisory committee of neighborhood representatives, technical experts, and City staff to develop recommendations for the types of development tools that are most appropriate for Woodlawn Lake. Contact Cory Edwards at cory.edwards@sanantonio.gov with any questions or to participate on the advisory committee.
