The City’s Office of Historic Preservation receives applications and issues administrative approvals for residents who wish to upgrade their landscapes. There are many contributing factors when changing or modifying a landscape within a historic district. This may include various design guidelines, tree preservation ordinances, exemptions, and the Unified Development Code.
Information about landscape modifications and administrative approvals can be found at the OHP website (sanantonio.gov/historic/) and the City’s Unified Development Code site (sanantonio.gov/dsd/udc.asp). You may also contact the Development Services Department, Mark C. Bird, City Arborist at (210) 207-8053, or Justin Krobot, Assistant City Arborist (210) 207-6042. Additional assistance can also be obtained by contacting OHP directly at (210) 215-9274.
