In 2017, 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.
The City of San Antonio has five Viewshed Protection Districts that are currently in place:
- Alamo Viewshed (VP-1)
- Mission Protection Overlay Districts (MPOD-1, MPOD-2, MPOD-3, MPOD-4)
The creation of a new Viewshed Protection District is a two-step process requiring both UDC Amendments and the implementation of a new zoning overlay district. As potential new districts are proposed, affected property owners will be notified and engaged in the adoption process.
Please use this page a resource; the tabs below will be updated throughout the process.
