People + Place = Vacant Building Program (Virtual Conversation)


The Office of Historic Preservation is hosting a series of virtual conversations to educate San Antonio property owners about the potential pitfalls that can lead to vacancy. The first conversation is entitled People + Place = Vacant Building Program and features an in-depth look at the people-centered approach of the Vacant Building Program (VBP). The discussion happens on Thursday, November 5th at 5:00pm and registration information can be found at


This in-depth conversation will cover the purpose of the program, where it applies, how it is structured, and how it is executed. Additionally, the discussion will communicate the enforcement actions associated with non-compliance and advice for owners on how to stay in compliance. Attendees are encouraged to submit questions before and during the session for VBP staff to address.

The VBP covers nearly 25% of San Antonio and works in support of other previously-established areas like Neighborhood Conservation Districts and City-initiated Tax Increment Reinvestment Zones—the VBP is not only in historic districts.


The main audience is individuals that are owners of single-family properties—whether vacant or occupied. We want vacant property owners to understand their obligation under the program, how to be exempt from the program, and neighbors of vacant properties to understand the holistic approach we take and our goal of helping to strengthen San Antonio neighborhoods.


Community Spotlight


These neighbors came together and used Nextdoor for good! Neighbors from Wilshire Terrace, Oak Park Northwood, East Terrell Hills and more came together to collect garbage between Harry Wurzbach and Eisenhauer and Corrine - clearing parts of both District 10 and District 2 - over the last six weeks. All told they've put in over fifty hours of work and collected one hundred twenty bags of garbage. Thank you, neighbors!
