Also, I’d like to recognize an OHP team member who recently retired after more than 33 years of service. Through his years of service at OHP, Larry Gutierrez has been a tremendous asset to the City of San AntonioWe are grateful for his outstanding and dedicated service to the community and wish him the very best on his retirement and future fishing trips. Congratulations, Larry! 

I encourage you to follow OHP through our website and facebook page for information on all of our upcoming events this spring including a pre-fiesta medal unveiling and mini-golf extravaganza at Cool Crest on April 7! We are excited to announce many other new events for the year so be sure to stay tuned.

From OHP Staff
Katie's Corner
As the Texas weather changes from one day to the next, home owners may be eager to make repairs to their historic wood windows to become more efficient and weather resistant. Wood windows can be weatherized and repaired to last a lifetime which also helps retain the original character of your historic home. Staff may administratively approve repairs to historic wood windows at the OHP counter, or you can e-mail an application to us at info@sapreservation.com

Not sure where to begin? Check out our Guidelines for Historic Windows or make plans to attend the upcoming Wood Window Repair Workshop.
