Community Workshop #3 for Strategic Historic Preservation Plan
The City’s Office of Historic Preservation will hold a final Community Workshop from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 30, at the Development Services Building, 1901 S. Alamo, Training Rooms A & B, to review the Preliminary Strategic Historic Preservation Plan.
The workshop will include a review and evaluation of the preliminary draft of the plan, evaluation of plan strategies and recommendations for short and long term goals, and generation of additional planning ideas and options for inclusion in the final draft of plan. The purpose of this initiative is to create broad-based community consensus about historic preservation issues so that the preservation office is equipped to make sound decisions about the preservation of historic buildings, sites, and districts.
The goal of the plan is to provide concrete strategies to enhance the preservation program and capitalize on San Antonio’s historic resources that have a proven positive impact on economic development, heritage tourism, and quality of life.
The event is free and open to the public. Community input is critical. For more information, contact Elizabeth Porterfield at (210) 207-3327.
