Amid Development, San Antonio Looks To Protect Views Of Cultural Landmarks
City Council is considering more protections for the views and vistas surrounding historic places, landmarks and cultural resources in San Antonio.
The "viewshed" around four sites – the Tower Life Building, San Fernando Cathedral, Hays Street Bridge and Woodlawn Lake – have been recommended for approval by the Council's Arts, Culture & Heritage Committee.
How have other Texas cities like Austin handled viewshed policies? Could new regulations impact nearby buildings and businesses?
What would the creation of Viewshed Protection Districts mean for local growth and development?
