STAR is coming to the King William Historic District on October 3 and 4. At its October 2014 meeting, the KWA board voted to donate $6,500 to the STAR program specifically for an event in the King William Historic District. Our donation will sponsor rehabilitation of five houses. Supporting the STAR program is one of the goals of the KWA Strategic Plan.
Students Together Achieving Revitalization is a program organized in the City’s Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) in partnership with graduate and undergraduate architecture and construction students from UTSA and San Antonio College. Students learn from local contractors to repair windows and screens, replace rotted wood of siding and porches, and perform exterior painting. This is a free service provided to property owners with houses located in the King William Historic District and chosen through an application process submitted to OHP.
