San Antonio Conservation Society Position Statement
Historic and Design Review Commission
November 7, 2018
First Vice President Patti Zaiontz delivered a statement in support of the Mission Historic District Design Manual, which the HDRC approved. The Society had participated in reviewing the draft authorized by City Council in October.
The manual will go next to Zoning Commission, then on to City Council for final approval. It provides homeowners, business owners, and developers with a guide for understanding the historic forms and patterns of the South Side district’s built environment. These guidelines encourage various approaches to commercial and residential development that respect specific community needs, while building on historic neighborhood characteristics.
